Titus Canyon

Hi all, gonna head to DV and would like to do Titus Canyon for the first time ever. Having never been there, I've heard that it can be a little tough on a R1200GS depending on the current condition. Has anyone been there lately that can assess the current condition for a rider on a bigger bike? I have dirt experience, but my riding partner has very little. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.

Mind some company?

TealLA,

I'm heading to DV tomorrow with my wife both on GS1200s, planning on hitting Titus Sunday morning and heading North towards the crater, racetrack and hidden valley right after. Happy to meet and ride Titus with you if you want.

no way dude. I hears on the internet from this blog from reddit that was on buzzfeed that said Titus is closed and the only thing open was Hwy 190 and Furnace Creek.

The Morning Report says nothing about Titus being closed...

Tioga is closed, maybe what you "heard"
