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.
