Drive Chicken Corners

Moab, Utah

based on 1 reviews


Added by Matt Johnson

One of the most scenic drives in Moab, Chicken Corners is a drive to see many cool Utah features following above the Colorado River valley.

From Moab, take Kane Creek Blvd out of town towards the beginning of the trailhead at the Kane Creek Recreation Parking Lot. From there, the trail is pretty much the only route available. The drive follows along a very smooth dirt road for the first six miles. Here, take a right to follow towards Hurrah Pass (see Drive Hurrah Pass for more info), climbing for about 3.5 miles. 

After reaching the top of the pass, continue over the pass following a narrow roadway along the cliffside. Continue for another 2.5 miles until reaching the bottom of the canyon. There are signs and chicken dolls marking the correct turns to take to continue on the path. From here, the trail climbs back up to Wash Bottom, a flat open section of the trail. You will continue for about right more miles until reaching Chicken Corners and the end of the trail. You can walk out to the end of the trail, even though its too narrow for vehicles. This is the most scenic part of the trip, with a breathtaking view of the Colorado River.

The return drive is the same as the approach. If attempting to ride this trail, make sure to bring plenty of water, it will probably take half the day to complete. Camping is available at the beginning of the trail in marked sites, and dispersed camping is allowed towards the end of the trail. 

Trail Length - 42 miles

Time to Complete - 1/2 to Full Day

Drive Chicken Corners Reviews

This trail gets sketchier than I imagined it to be from other reviews. Once you get over to the river side the views are amazing. Totally worth it!
