Bull Creek Pass Trail

Bull Creek Pass Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This trail is entirely on BLM land and is a designated scenic backcountry byway. The trail turns off Utah 95, 21 miles south of Hanksville.

Special Attractions: Long, remote backcountry byway with varied scenery and elevation changes; Bull Creek Pass at 10,485 feet; Rare chance to see a wild bison herd. High-clearance vehicles are preferred, but not necessary. This trail is dirt roads, but may have rocks, grades, water crossings, or ruts that make clearance a concern in a normal passenger vehicle. The trail is fairly wide, so that passing is possible at almost any point along the trail. Mud is not a concern under normal weather conditions."

Nice Jeep trail in a pretty area of Utah. The scenery is awesome once you get up to the higher elevations. The trail was in good shape during our trip in June 2011 but we could not make the entire loop. At 10,000 feet we came to the remains of an avalanche that had the road blocked with a lot of snow, beyond the snow there were a lot of trees down making the pass over the top impassable. We did find good camping spots along the route. With all of the snow melt runoff the road was in surprisingly good shape, all stream fords were handled easily in a Jeep with good clearance. Will try this trip again sometime in July or August. The scenery is great.
