Trail Overview

Hog Canyon BLMHC2 starts at the intersection with Hog Canyon Road. It is a sand and dirt trail that leads to the Kanab overlook and radio towers. The road is considered easy on the Utah Division of Parks and Recreation trail map due to areas of deep sand. Hog Canyon BLMHC2 ends at the Kanab overlook and is an out-and-back trail. The Hog Canyon OHV Trail System is a network of technical motorized trails north of Kanab, UT offering OHV enthusiasts roughly 30 miles of trails through spectacular terrain ranging from easy sand to extreme rock crawling. The Hog Canyon OHV trails navigate steep inclines, rocky surfaces, narrow passages, and deep sand and are suitable for four-wheel-drive vehicles, ATVs, UTVs, dirt bikes, and other off-highway vehicles. They are not recommended for street or two-wheel-drive vehicles. Hiking, biking, and equestrian use of the trails are allowed, and motorized users should exercise situational awareness as users may not expect to encounter other user groups. The trail system is primarily accessed by trailheads located on its eastern and western entrances. The western trailhead includes a staging area and an informational kiosk. The eastern trailhead includes an informational kiosk but no other amenities. Riders arriving from the east generally stage vehicles at the Crocodile Staging Area.
