Tips

Easy, but adventurous, drive to high scenic pass A short drive takes you through easy parts of Kane Creek Canyon to pleasant views from 4,780-ft. Hurrah Pass. Indian petroglyphs at the Birthing Rock. BLM and private camping along paved Kane Creek Road. Designated camp spots in Kane Creek Canyon. Stay on existing roads at all times. Arrive early on summer weekends to get best camp spots. You can continue down other side of pass to Chicken Corners (available as eGuide from FunTreks on EveryTrail). Located on BLM land. For current status call Bureau of Land Management, Moab Field Office at (435) 259-2100. Rating: Easy. A wide gravel road most of the way with occasional small ledges and steep spots last 3 miles. Suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles with high ground clearance under ideal conditions. Several water crossings on Kane Creek Road are usually shallow, but they can be deep and fast flowing in the spring or after a downpour. Don't cross if you can't see bottom and be prepared to wait awhile if you get trapped on other side.

This is a great SUV trip if you are short on time, but still want a little adventure to wonderful scenery. Hot in summer, especially in the afternoon. Take plenty of water. Trail conditions can change without notice.

We go dirt biking on this trail often, it can be difficult some times. I would say it’s easy/intermediate for most experienced dirt bikers but probably feels difficult for the less experienced. There is some exposure on cliffs with windy turns so an inexperienced dirt biker can really get hurt. We love this trail though! So scenic and most amazing views I’ve ever seen. If you can find the wind tunnels out there too it’s definitely worth your time.

Rented UTV’s for this and had an absolute blast! Being in the open UTV’s gave you an up close and personal perspective! Once you go over the pass, the downside to Base Camp is a little unnerving in a few spots with steep drop offs.

We drove this trail in late November in a Dodge 3500 dually. We were heading towards base camp. The scenery was beautiful but the drive was quite terrifying since our vehicle is so large. I would not recommend driving this in the dark or rainy/snowy weather.

Did it in a Dodge Mini Van. No issues and no ground strike. Not as fun as a Jeep, but got me to Base Camp Lodge.

Beautiful drive. I definitely recommend a vehicle with moderate clearance. I would say this was a gorgeous easy trail.

It is long especially if you continue after Hurrah Pass to Chicken Corners. It started getting dark so we had to turn around and head back before we got to the end of Chick.Corners. Super fun, easy trail, even on a Saturday the traffic was sparse. Views were awesome! We have a Wrangler Rubicon and had zero problems.

It’s 19 Miles each way, not round trip. Keep that in mind. Did it in my 1997 modded land cruiser no problem. Most cars can do it with ground clearance.

This is a great off road trail. We made this trip three times. Once in a Hummer H3 and twice in an Arctic Cat Wildcat. All the vehicles made the journey with ease. Make sure to bring plenty of water (in the summer time especially) as it gets extremely hot and there is nowhere to rehydrate in this area.

Loved this trail. We did it on Suzuki dual-sport bikes. Not very challenging but enough technical areas to make it fun. The best part was the view.

A very easy but very scenic route. The view from the top of the pass is very nice. This is on the way to Chicken Corners and the Lockhart Basin Trail. The aquamarine pools in the distance are from the potash plant.

Wonderful views while driving up to the top. An easy 4WD trail up one side and down the other. Once your down, there isn't much until you reach Catacomb Rock and then on to Chicken Corners. We turned around at the Rock.

First to Review

Hurrah Pass is about 29 miles RT from Moab. The trip starts in town on Kane Creek Road, after about 5 miles the road becomes gravel. By the time you get to Kane Creek Canyon, the Jeeping becomes a little more difficult. But the views are magnificent. Taking the Hurrah Pass Trail is bedrock ledges, sand and loose rock. Once you've climbed 700 feet in elevation at the Pass, what views. To your left is the wide panorama of Kane Creek Canyon, to your right is the Colorado River canyon landscape. Me and my sons Ron and Bob made this trip on our way to Chicken Corners. But we did stop to expore and view the scenic beauty of the Pass. Just, WOW!
