Hurrah Pass

Hurrah Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.456m (4,780ft) above the sea level, located in Utah, USA. This trail is very easy and extremely scenic. It is primarily a dirt road that goes over a fairly low pass. Several water crossings.

The pass is the highest point on the trail from Moab to Chicken Corners, a good dirt road with moderate hills. At 20 miles round trip, the final three-mile climb to the pass is the only challenging stretch. A wide gravel road most of the way with occasional small ledges and steep spots last 3 miles. Suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles with high ground clearance under ideal conditions. Several water crossings on Kane Creek Road are usually shallow, but they can be deep and fast flowing in the spring or after a downpour. Don't cross if you can't see bottom and be prepared to wait awhile if you get trapped on other side. The road up to Hurrah Pass is pretty tame. 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.

The road encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. This is a wonderful drive best done early in the morning for good pictures and to avoid the traffic later in the day. The views are fantastic and the road leads to chicken corners.
