Trail Overview

Bull Creek Pass Road is situated on the Northern end of the Henry Mountains where it passes from the West side and traverses to the East side where it turns South and ends in the Central portion of the mountain range. Most of the road is wide enough for a single vehicle with several areas vehicles can crowd both sides to pass. The Henry mountain range has very steep grades. This road is cut into the side of these grades and can be a bit unsettling in the mud and snow. One wrong move and a vehicle could quickly roll to the bottom. The area is covered in Sagebrush, Cedar, Pine, and Quaking Aspen trees. It is a limited draw Mule Deer hunting area. There are several large bucks in the area and is a great place for wildlife viewing. There is also a heard of free-range Bison in the area.

The pass is still snowed shut. Can make it around the mountain toward Crescent creek, but Bull Creek Pass itself is currently blocked with both a 18” diameter dead pine, and snow remnants totally obscuring the road several feet deep. Gorgeous views regardless.
