Perhaps the most popular backroad in Death Valley National Park. Very scenic after the first 10 miles. A few buildings remain at the Leadfield Mine and Townsite. Interesting geologic rock formations and a few petroglyphs. The road is one-way east to west. Street-legal vehicles only. For information on this route and occassional closures, contact Death Valley National Park at (760) 786-3200 or go to www.nps.gov/deva.
Easy. A well-maintained gravel road but steep and narrow in a few places. Four-wheel drive seldom necessary under dry conditions. Road is closed when rain is expected due to extreme flash-flood danger through narrowest part of Titus Canyon. May also close with winter snows.
Make sure you carry adequate water and sun protection in the event that you have a mechanical breakdown. Although it is likely that you will see other vehicles along the route, it is best to be self reliant.
