Nearby Attractions

South Willow Canyon Road is a very scenic drive in the Tooele County, in western Utah, USA. The road is mostly paved but becomes gravel at the National Forest boundary and winds through some very interesting narrows, but any vehicle should be able to make it. 

The road is 7.1 miles long. The last 4 miles are unpaved. It’s noted for its fantastic wildlife. Along the road there are five forest service campgrounds. Snow can usually be found on the upper part of the trail from November to the middle of June. The road is pretty steep and narrow. Although the South Willow Canyon road is paved, it is pitted with chuckholes and is not recommended for trailer use. The road ends at an elevation of 7,470ft (2.276m) above the sea level, at the beginning of the Deseret Peak Trail.
