Bluebell Knoll is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 11,317ft (3.449m) above the sea level, located in the Boulder Mountains, in Wayne County, in south-central Utah. It’s one of the highest roads in Utah.
The road to the summit is a gravel trail, accesible for a vehicle with high clearance. It climbs to the top of the Aquarius Plateau and leads to Bluebell Knoll. Most of the route is good roads for passenger cars, the final few miles has a rough spot or two but nothing keeping a determined driver from reaching. This long dusty road through the desert is accessible from June until November, but in a heavy winter year, the roads to the Aquarius Plateau may not open until July. The road ends at 11,177 feet. From the road, it is a short stroll to the summit area.
Do not travel this pass in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. It has a well-deserved reputation for being dangerous because of unpredictable snowstorms and blizzards, and driving under these conditions, can be extremely challenging.
