This alternate route into the HenryMountains from the north is little traveled; most visitors take the major dirt road leading directly south from Hanksville. The trail starts 9 miles west of Hanksville; turn south from Utah 24 on an unsigned dirt trail. Special Attractions: Ghost town site of Giles; Panoramic views of the Henry Mountains; Remote, seldom traveled desert track; Desolate badlands and moonscape scenery. High-clearance 4WDs are preferred, but any high-clearance vehicle is acceptable. Expect a rough road surface; mud and sand are possible but will be easily passable. You may encounter rocks up to 6 inches in diameter, a loose road surface, and shelf roads, though these will be wide enough for passing or will have adequate pull-offs.
