Default Death Valley road closures
We just returned from Death Valley and don't recommend anyone going there for at least a few weeks, possibly much longer. Several paved and many dirt roads were closed due to previous storms when we arrived on Friday, March 8. On Wednesday evening and into Thursday, March 14 it rained very hard and washed out what few roads were open. We were lucky to get out at all. When we first arrived there was no access to Titus Canyon (no you can't go around the barriers as the road is impassable), Wildrose Road leading to Skidoo & the Charcoal Kilns, Westside Road and others and after that Wednesday night storm many other roads were washed out as well.
