Hero: Pack Saddle Flats
small-sr Icon

Quickly crossing miles of grassy prairie with Chimney Rock and Cedar Mountain as a backdrop, Pack Saddle connects Green River Cutoff with more remote trails within the San Rafael Recreation Area. Pack Saddle Flats is an overland adventure trail ideal for the back-country explorer trying to avoid gravel roads but not break anything. The trail has a couple of 4x4 challenges for stock or expedition-type vehicles. Camper vans or trucks with camper tops are not advised. The southern portion of the trail is the most difficult. One loose rock hill climb with a step at the very top requires extra ground clearance and a bump. This obstacle is going up when traveling north to south. After that point, the trail becomes narrow, around trees and along the edge of a cliff, wide enough for most standard 4x4s but not full-sized trucks and vans. The route has no established campsites.
