Hole In The Rock Trail

Saturday, December 09, 2017

Alt Names

Cottonwood Canyon, Halls Crossing, Lake Powell, Nokai Dome Road, Grey Mesa, the Chute, Old Settler Natural Bridge, Nokia Wash

Last Known StatusOpen

This old pioneer trail is popular among the Jeep crowd but is also open to ATVs and dirt bikes. This very scenic trail is 38 miles long each way (in and out) and is a very technical and demanding ride that consists of slick rock and sand washes. There are several primitive campsites along the way. Gas can be found the Cal Black Airport or at Halls Crossing and is recommended to bring extra.

The trail is marked with colored ribbons, signs and carsonite markers. The trail is about 13 miles east of Halls Crossing but this is in a remote location and depending on where you are coming from taking the ferry might save you some mileage. The ferry operates daily except on Christmas Day or New Years Day but call first as the schedule and rates are subject to change.
