Trail Overview

This trail is unique in that you pass through so many ecosystems as you climb from the hoodoos of the desert floor into the forested region. If you connect onto the Bull Creek Pass Road or the Nasty Flat Road and into the higher elevations, you'll even end up above the treeline. The views are stunning and there are multiple points of interest to see along the way, including an old rock cabin and an old log cabin. The trail is relatively easy if you stay on the main route, however, there was one water crossing that could get a bit more hairy in the spring runoff season. Otherwise, standard SUVs can typically navigate this with ease.

This road is one vehicle wide, rough, and rocky in some sections. It is definitely more comfortable if you air down, but it's not necessary. There's one water crossing that can vary depending on the season.

Access Description

Go south on 95 out of Hanksville. The turn-off drops down away from the road into a basin. On a weekend, there will typically be a lot of trailers and toy haulers parked down in the basin and you can't miss it.
