Trail Overview
Road to Hite
Spend the day in true Utah backcountry on this easy, 30-mile road to the north end of Lake Powell. The trip is beautiful, but very remote so come prepared and consider riding with another vehicle. There is an option for great camping overlooking the Colorado River. No permit required. You may find 24-hour gas in Hite, but don't rely on it. The next gas is 52 miles north in Hanksville.
Getting There
