Trail Overview

Croton Road is a rarely used gravel road that stretches twenty-five miles through the Grand Staircase Escalante. It connects Left Hand Collett to the Sit Down Bench and Little Valley roads along the Croton Bench above Lake Powell. Its biggest draw is those seeking evidence of the underground burning coal fires in the nearby Burning Hills. This road is rocky and is not regularly maintained. In wet weather, it would be easy to get stuck. This is a very remote area.

there is a section with some boulders that are slightly on the trail and if you're too wide you might not be able to squeeze by. making it harder to turn around.

This could be fun if you had the proper vehicle. 4x4 with high clearance or a bike or something. We were in a stock Jeep Grand Cherokee AWD. We should've turned around but did not. Only enough room for one vehicle. The road had many boulders and rocks on the path and we were scraping the bottom quite a bit.
