Road to Hite

No Reviews
Location Moab, UT
Rating Easy,
Length 30.7mi
Time 3hrs

Vehicle Types


Long offroad trek across Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.

This trail crosses more than 30 miles of extremely remote backcountry. Even though it’s easy most of the time, if you have a problem, it’s a long walk out. Protect yourself by going with another vehicle. It’s a beautiful drive that ends in a stunning area at the north end of Lake Powell. A short side trip at Waypoint 03 leads to a great camp spot overlooking the Colorado River, and no permit is needed to camp here. Gas may be available in Hite at a single 24-hour, credit-card gas pump. Next closest gas is another 52 miles north to Hanksville.


Trail Ratings Defined

Road is generally in good condition and easy to follow, except after heavy rain storms, which was the case when we drove it the first time. On this trip, we encountered one challengingwashout (see photo). On a second trip, months later, we breezed through with no problems.
