We camped in the winter at Furnace Creek and Stove Pipe Wells with no hook ups. We had our Jeep and explored the whole Southern half of DV from Titus Canyon down. We had a great time and need to get back to explore the North half

Titus Canyon is spectacular. Here is a view while we took a break from the motorcycles:

On the Titus Canyon road as with other 4x4 roads, you go very slow and you stop and let an approaching vehicle pass. There's usually no problem.

Scotty's Castle was built by an old-time hustler. It has a fascinating story to it and the home is absolutely gorgeous inside with furnishings from around the world. It is truly not to be missed. Scotty's is on a very wide, paved highway so it's easy to get to it.

Titus Canyon road is 'One Way' only.

TITUS CANYON ROAD: Titus Canyon is an awesome drive. The canyon is accessible by a 26-mile-long one-way graded dirt road that makes its way from the Nevada side of the park, up and over the crest of the Grapevine Mountains to eventually descend some 5,000 feet through Titus Canyon to the floor of Death Valley.

Did you make it to the racetrack where the sliding rocks are. That's my plan for this winter. And yes Scotty Castle a must see.

No we didn't make it to the racetrack. Titus Canyon took more time than I expected. I was amazed that it took me over about 3 hours. But then we took our time After visiting Scotty's Castle we drove to the cutoff for the racetrack but decided against it. Really enjoyed Death Valley and I think we'll be visiting again ...

We were there last February & going back this February. I don't pull a 4 X 4. So I plan to rent one this time for a couple days. I'll do Titus canyon too. Thanks for your info

Titus is an easy 4x4 drive but plenty of nice exploring points along the way. Well worth doing!

A big rain this summer took out the road leading to the charcoal kilns (at least from the west) the Panamint valley road, and 178 between the park and death valley junction.

There's no schedule for some of these repairs due to the federal budget crisis, so pay attention to current road conditions when you get there.
