This short drive takes you through the easy parts of Kane Springs Canyon to pleasant views from relatively low Hurrah Pass. Stop along the way to see extraordinary Indian petroglyphs on a large boulder next to the road. Camping is permitted along the route but only in designated sites while in the Colorado Riverway. Fees are required and vault toilets are provided. Beyond the Riverway boundary, please bring a portable toilet if you plan to camp. A wide gravel road most of the way. Closer to the pass, it narrows somewhat and becomes rockier with mild, tippy spots. Suitable for two-wheel drive vehicles with high ground clearance under ideal conditions. Several water crossings on Kane Creek Road are usually shallow, but they can be very deep and unsafe to cross in the spring or after a heavy rain. Route-finding is extremely easy.

Great trail. Has a little of everything, scenic, water, canyons, not to technical. Really enjoyed on a cool summer morning.
