Long drive over Hurrah Pass to great scenery above Colorado River Camp in designated sites only in Kane Creek Canyon. Very popular ATV, UTV and dirt bike area. Descend the dramatic west side of Hurrah Pass to the Colorado River. Explore natural caves at Catacomb Rock. From Chicken Corners, look across river to see dramatic Thelma & Louise Point. (You'll appreciate this spot more if you've seen the movie.) Experience the thrill of Chicken Corners.Located on BLM land. For current status call Bureau of Land Management, Moab Field Office at (435) 259-2100. Rating: Moderate. With the exception of a few moderate rocky spots, most of this trail is easy. Best driven in late spring and fall. Hot in summer.

We took the trail going through the Hurrah pass trailing the very edge of the clifs and it was wonderful. the top has breathtaking views and the trail isn't too difficult to the top. Going down on the other side to get to the Chicken Trail is a tad bit more difficult but still not too bad.

Moderate is probably an accurate description. The views are stunning. Words wont do it justice. Dispersed camping is available if you travel far enough in to the trail. Otherwise there are paid camp sites within the first few miles. We spent two nights at different sites here. No one for miles...total silence. We loved it!!

Starts out as a fully-graded dirt road that you could easily drive your BMW sports sedan on with no problems. Beautiful but not challenging for a 4-wheel drive. However, after the last campground it turns into a more interesting off-road driving road—with twists and turns and bumps and a few small obstacles. I saw several stock trucks and cars driving it carefully but with little problem. Views are stunning as you look down deep, narrow canyons. The west side continues to be very interesting and beautiful. We stopped for a while at Catacomb Rock which is one of those little wonders out in the desert. I’ll bring my kids back and they’ll spend hours exploring its caves and formations.

The scenery is amazing and the view at the end is breathtaking. Very enjoyable, non-technical trail.

This trail is very easy, but exceptionally scenic! One of my favorite trails to ride my dirt bike on. We could do it WAY faster than the Jeeps so we could jut out on all the little trails connected to it. It's gorgeous!! A perfect first ride in Moab!

Awesome! I bought a used 2009 RZR 800 side-by-side last year. This was my first ride over 30 miles and it was perfect. The views are amazing and the trail was perfect. there is a 1000 foot climb in 1 mile on the way back. I was a little worried that my RZR might carry my fat butt back over the top, but it did. I recommend giving your vehicle a little rest at the top though. I highly recommend this trail to everyone.

We rode this trail on Suzuki dual-sport motorcycles (DR-200 and DR-650). This trail was really fun with a good number of technical areas including steep hills with rock ledges, deep sand areas and uneven terrain. I would highly recommend this trail.

Connect from Hurrah Pass. The view at the end is worth the ride. Most of this trail is smooth and fast. Take care to stay on the right trail as there are several forks that go to other trails.

Super fun trail and doable by all levels of off road driving experience. The scenery from this trail is beyond gorgeous.

Highly Recommend.

This is quite a drive with fantastic views of the Colorado River and of Dead Horse Point from across the river. It's not very busy and can be quite hot so bring water. Cell phone service was pretty much non-existent so, if you break down, help may be far away.

For the most part the trail is easy. I was in two wheel drive for most of the trail. Though easy, it's fun and has great scenery!

In order to get to Chicken Corners, you have to first travel the 5.5 miles of Hurrah Pass Trail via Kane Creek Road. Then travel down the other side of Hurrah Pass on the actual Chicken Corners Trail. The trail is bumpy, rocky and moderately difficult. It gradually decends along a rough shelf road, finally leveling off above the Colorado. The trail ends at a small parking area, where you now must proceed on foot to a short, very narrow trail to the actual Chicken Corners. This hike is not for anyone who fears height. The trail is over 500' above the Colorado River and on a ledge no wider than 2 feet at its narrowest. I was clinging on to the walls of the ledge for dear life, my boys Ron and Bob were fearless. What an experience! What memories!
