Hurrah Pass

Hurrah Pass, a gravel road in the Moab

Hurrah Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.461m (4,793ft) above the sea level, located on the boundary of San Juan and Grand counties in eastern Utah, United States. At times the road to the pass is very thin and very close to the edge of far drops.

The road to the summit is unpaved. It’s called County Road 145. Starting from Moab, the drive is 23.17km (14.4 miles) long. This trail is easy and extremely scenic until the last 4-5 miles, and then it gets pretty rough and is 4x4 territory. There are a few turns that may take your breath away looking straight down into the canyons but very worth it.

The road is usually suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles with high ground clearance under ideal conditions. The views along the way are fantastic and the road leads to Chicken Corners. It’s accessible all year-round and the view from the top of the pass is very nice, overlooking the Colorado river and Potash Evaporation ponds. This is a wonderful drive best done early in the morning for good pictures and to avoid the traffic later in the day.
