Chicken Corners Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"The very popular spur trail to Chicken Corners continues from the top of Hurrah Pass, at the end of Hurrah Pass Trail. It gradually descends along a rough shelf road, wrapping around gullies etched in the bluff to level off above the Colorado River. It winds along the river, at times coming very close to the edge. It continues on sandy tracks to the start of the Lockhart Basin Trail after 6.7 miles. Lockhart Basin trail takes two days to complete and has a very difficult, potentially vehicle-damaging section at its northernmost end. Route finding on the plateau above the Colorado River can be difficult in places as trails go off in all directions, but most of them either dead-end or rejoin the main trail later.

Special Attractions: Far-reaching views of Canyonlands area; Views of the Colorado River and potash evaporation ponds. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface."
