Escape summer’s heat over high pass in La Sal Mountains.

Escape Moab’s summer heat with this relaxing, scenic drive over 10,600-ft. Geyser Pass. Views of Spanish Valley from the west side and Mt. Peale on the east side. Hike and bike to nearby mountaintops. Great fall color outside burn area. Unlicensed ATVs, UTVs, and dirt bikes are allowed. Dispersed camping along route. Make a loop by returning over La Sal Pass, trail #60 (also damaged by fire), or just take Highways 46 and 191 back to Moab.


Trail Ratings Defined

Maintenance was done on the road after the fire, so we expect the road surface to be about the same. West side is a wide, smooth gravel road suitable for most passenger cars. Washboard possible on steeper grades. East side is a bit rougher, but suitable for stock 4x4 SUVs. More difficult when snow and mud linger in the spring. Side roads in the burn area may be closed awhile.

Trail Updates

Submitted by Dennis
The Manti-La Sal National Forest announced that work began on a series of projects along the Geyser Pass Road on Aug. 30. The road has been closed for much of the summer due to the Pack Creek Fire; sections of the road will again be closed between late August and late October. The improvements include widening narrow sections of the upper Geyser Pass Road, improving visibility, expanding and improving parking lots, and adding a restroom at the Trans La Sal Trailhead.

The Geyser Pass Road will be closed from the junction with the La Sal Loop Road up to the pass from Aug. 30 – Sept. 12. The upper section of the road, from the junction with Gold Basin to the pass, will be closed from Sept. 12 – Oct. 29, or until the project is complete. The pass and trails that begin at Geyser Pass will still be accessible from the east side (which adds about an hour to the drive time from Moab.)
