Come drive the whole loop with me on Death Valley's 20 Mule Team Canyon.
Entire drive through Titus Canyon, Death Valley National Park.
(Speed is 20 times normal.)
Titus Canyon 4x4 trail starts just west of Rhyolite ghost town outside of Beatty, NV on Rte. 374. The trail is rated 1, which implies it's basically just a dirt road. Which it is, mostly. There were a couple spots coming down the side of a mountain that I would rate as a 2. Death Valley National Park states a high clearance 2WD or any 4WD would be okay on this trail. Personally, I wouldn't go without a 4WD or AWD vehicle. The challenge I see occurring is a long stretch of the trail is in a river wash. If the park hasn't gone through and graded that area since the last rain, there could be large boulders in the way. That, and I found 4WD helpful going down the side of the mountain on the parts I rate as a 2 trail.
Have you heard of the Sailing Stones in Death Valley National Park? In May 2021 I took an adventure out there to see them for myself!
