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.

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.

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.

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!
