Hero: Hog Canyon
small-sr Icon
Hog Canyon is a continuation of Nash Road that leads across Windy Mesa and eventually dead ends in the Book Cliffs. The trail starts by traveling under I-70 on a beat-up old gravel road. After several miles, the trail begins to wind its way up a narrow cliff-walled canyon. There can be large trucks on the road; there is only room for a single vehicle to travel at several points. The further you travel, the rougher the trail becomes. In dry conditions, the entire route can be completed in 2wd with high clearance. The route's endpoint is a drilling platform, but the drive getting there is very scenic. The only established campsite was out in the open on Windy Mesa. Be aware of very high winds in the springtime, May-June.
