Trails you can access from Kane Creek Road:

  • Moab Rim Trail is a grueling 6.8 one-way or 14.3 loop trail with a steep initial climb, technical ledges, sand bog, and lots of exposure. All being said, the trail is a fun challenge and offers great views of Moab.
  • The Pritchett/Hunter Canyon Loop is off to the left just before Kane Creek Road turns to dirt. This trail is an 11.7 mile loop with many technical sections and a variety of surfaces from 4WD track to single track to dry streambeds.
  • Amasa Back Trail is an 11.2 mile out-and-back mountain bike trail along 4WD track with technical ledges, slickrock, and some exposure. The turnaround offers breathtaking views over the Colorado River.
  • Hurrah Pass is at the end of Kane Creek Road. Ride along this well defined road which parallels Kane Springs Canyon until it climbs up to Hurrah Pass, a 19 mile out-and-back ride from the beginning of Kane Springs Canyon at the cattle guard.
