Trail Information


While standing at Fixit Pass, take a moment to absorb the breathtaking scenery and congratulate yourself for safely climbing the trail's notable narrow shelf road. The towering white buttes are abundant along the entire route. Using your imagination, the rocky spires create different shapes as you travel past. There are praying hands, a dinosaur, and deep indentations in the white sandstone cliffs. Fixit Pass is required but an excellent addition when connecting with North Fork of Coal Wash, Nielsen Dugway, or Cane Wash.

We have run this trail several times over the years because we thought it would be easier than Devil's Race Track. That's true, but it depends on your fear of narrow ledges on steep climbs. The climb at Waypoint 2 is the only tricky part but requires a confident driver with good-sized tires; 33s would be ideal, but that probably needs to be bigger for the long 4-door Jeeps and Tacomas. I recommend the Locomotive Point, Racetrack, and Fixit Pass for an excellent all-day loop.

The trail was really nice and challenging in our stock Rubicon 392 w/ 33” tires. We had more aggressive vehicles with us that also had a nice challenge navigating the incline. There seemed to be more rock fall on the trail with steps all the way up and then the large rock problem near the top of the first section. All were able to pass and we had a really fun time on this section.

Great trail. Almost all of this would be more like a 3 in my opinion other than coming down the pass itself in 2 or 3 spots that probably make this about a 5. This trail lived true to its name of "fix it" for us as we had two broken front shock mounts at the first pass (we went from the Southern end towards the North). We got them working enough to do the rest of the trail after some modifications. It was very scenic and a great trail otherwise.

Fabulous trip and one of the most beautiful trips ever. The swell in any other state would be a national park. This is one of our favorite trails in the San Rafael swell.
