This is one of the most incredible drives I have ever done. I would highly recommend a high-clearance vehicle, like a pickup or an SUV, because it is a rocky drive. The drive takes about 1 1/2 hours, but it is completely worth it. The rock formations change as you drive through the canyon and the scenery gets more breathtaking... More

We rented a jeep at Farabee's for this drive & glad we did. You can do it in a sedan or non-4 wheel drive car, but the higher clearance is worth the rental. I wouldn't want to take my car over this road as there a lot of large rocks to go over and very dusty. But with that said,... More

The title says it all. This must be the or one of the best drives I have ever done. Take it slow and easy and enjoy every inch and every vista. This is unbelievable.

OK, we didn't drive it because we approached from the wrong end (it's a one-way traffic system!) as a last-minute side trip on the way back from Racetrack Playa. But we did walk up it a couple of miles, during which we encountered cars coming the other way! High canyon walls rise up either side of a twisting, flat roadbed,... More

What an amazing ride on a gravel road through dessert flowers and narrow mountain passes and tight rocky canyons. Good to have a high clearance SUV. It's a one way road so no worries about oncoming traffic. So beautiful out in the middle of nowhere. Awesome views.

Titus is nice, huge, it is just so good. Did it in a sedan, better bring a vehicle with higher clearance (if dry, 4WD is not needed). First 10 miles not funny, be patient and you will be rewarded. Total length will be 24 miles and will take 2-3 hrs. Bring your 12-24mm lens. Few pictures submitted

First couple of miles are not that interesting and have the worst of the washboarding, but persevere because after that it just gets better and better. Allow yourself plenty of time to stop a see the many points of interest along the way. High clearance vehicle required and 4×4 would be helpful but not a necessity.

It's a somewhat rugged road through the canyon, so you might not have to jockey with a swarm of tourists to enjoy the views. We hired a guide, but skilled drivers accustomed to navigating mountainous roads with steep/tight turns could probably handle it in a rugged 4x4 vehicle. The Grapevine Mountain views are hauntingly spectacular and you'll see greenish-blue coloration... More
