Descend from Hurrah Pass on the more remote west side to the scenic Colorado River gorge. See Dead Horse Point State Park and Pyramid Butte across the river. Experience the thrill of Chicken Corners. Please stay on the trail at all times. This area has been heavily tracked by irresponsible drivers. Continued abuse could result in the area being closed. Just a few rough spots on this predominantly easy trail. At one point, you’re forced near the edge of a high cliff above the Colorado River. This spot is intimidating but easy. Suitable for stock, high-clearance vehicles under normal conditions. Water crossings along Kane Creek Road can be deep in early spring or after heavy rains. Best driven in late spring and fall. Hot in summer.

On the way to Chicken Corners the view over Hurrah Pass is scenic and picturesque. The trail is easy and good for novice riders except for the heavy traffic, and steep drop-offs. The road and foot-trail come very near the edge of a very long drop; especially keep kids under control and away from the edge. The walking portion of the trail should only be trekked by sure-footed hikers. The views from Chicken Corners are spectacular and worth visiting; I’ll enjoy my pics for years.
