Hero: San Rafael 9175
small-sr Icon

Crossing over a rugged and scenic landscape, 9175 is a 5.4-mile moderately difficult trail within the San Rafael Swell Recreation Area of Central Utah. The trail is ideal for the overland adventurer who wants to continue their route on these remote desert trails and stay off the gravel roads. Connecting Lower San Rafael Road to Nine Mile Reservoir gets you closer to the area with the most popular trails like Black Dragon Wash. The trail has mild 4x4 challenges requiring high ground clearance and durable off-road tires. The sandy dirt is soft, and there are blind washout ruts that could destroy the front suspension, so take it easy. Camping is abundant along the route. Numerous smooth flat dirt patches would make an ideal spot to stay under an endless blanket of stars.
