Vehicle Types


Go with a friend on this very remote offroad excursion.

Road starts easy but gradually gets rougher as it descends to Dirty Devil River. You’ll wind back and forth along high canyon walls for many miles, then drop to valley floor where road follows wash bottoms. Great views of Gunsight Butte as you climb toward Sunset Pass. This trail is part of the Poison Springs Trail System. OHV vehicles are allowed to continue south on Road to Hite, trail #82, as of March 2021. Check river flow rates before you go; search online for “Dirty Devil River flow.” Flow rates can change quickly.


Trail Ratings Defined

When dry, the road is mostly easy. Some areas are prone to washouts, and the river crossing will be impassable after a heavy rain. Cross river at your own risk. Don’t go alone. Gas up in Hanksville. Carry extra gas.
