Leadfield Ghost Town, Scranton Reviews - Write a Review
A regular car cannot access this place! You need a 4 wheel drive vehicle with at least a foot of ground clearance. The road is steep, windy and dangerous for novice drivers. Not for the faint of heart. Once you start you cannot turn back. It is a narrow 1 way road and follows the side of a mountain with steep hundred foot drops. But well worth it! Gorgeous views await those who dare.
Ghost town, nearby petroglyphs (built in 1926). Nice trip with 4WD vehicle to go there by Titus Canyon off-road drive. One way road going from east to west (27 miles) for a trip of 3 hours. Finishing in a spectacular canyon narrows. Must ask at ranger stations (visitor center at Furnace Creek, Death Valley National Park) for weather condition (when rain threatens).
Be carrefull to the Death Valley Safety precautions, the acces road is a dirt road not so easy to drive, steep slopes, tight turns ( Sufficient water in bord, etc.. ) because you cross hardly anybody on the acces roads to this site. (I drove a 4WD Doge Durango here)
Great fun back country drive, remote accessible location.
Leadfield was a great surprise for us on our trip through the Canyon. The old buildings were really awesome!!
