Bull Creek Pass

A memorable road trip to Bull Creek Pass

Bull Creek Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.206m (10,518ft) above the sea level, located in Garfield County, in the U.S. state of Utah. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Utah.

The road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s called BLM 14635. There are numerous rough sections, steep grades, and blind curves. The road is designed for 4WD vehicles only. The trail is windy, twisty, rugged, steep in spots, single lane and thoroughly unpaved. There are sections where you'll wish you were driving 4WD with high clearance. Sections of road can be washed out after periods of heavy rain.

Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. It is not generally snow-free until late June or even July in some years. It is usually open year-round in the lower elevation. The pass road is 68 miles long with a dirt surface. Bull Creek Pass takes you up and through the Henry Mountains. Due to the high elevations and exposure, the road is subject to strong winds and rapid weather changes.
