Breathtaking scenery, hoodoos, canyons, and epic vistas across the canyonlands awesomeness of Moab.

Hurrah Pass is a 19.5 mile out and back trail/road that leads from the Colorado River Canyon through Kane Creek Canyon and up to Hurrah Pass at 4,780'. While technically considered a 4x4 trail once you begin your ascent out of Kane Creek Canyon, this can be done with a high clearance 2wd vehicle (and a little skill) if conditions permit i.e. not after a strong rain.l

The views of Kane Creek Canyon and the Colorado River Canyon into Canyonlands National Park are fantastic and there are numerous campsites along the way including Hunters Canyon and on The Ledges

The road/trail itself begins where Kane Creek Road turns to dirt, approximately 5 miles from downtown Moab. From there is proceeds down into Kane Creek Canyon with a couple of stream crossings which can be impassible after a strong rain. After about 5 miles the road turns particularly rough, proceeding for 3 miles to the Pass, with breathtaking views over Kane Creek Canyon and the Colorado River Canyon.

The road/trail itself is passable for mountain biking though given the ATV and 4wd traffic it is not recommended as there are far better options in the area such as the Amasa Back / Hymasa trail network which was passed along the way. 

The trail and camping areas are all on BLM land. For current conditions call Bureau of Land Management, Moab Field Office at (435) 259-2100.
