Chiulos Canyon Road is a nice drive through the Tintic Mountains, connecting you from

Homansville Pass Road

over to

Jenny Lind Canyon

. This steady trail features some history of the mining industry that used to be present back in the late 1800's and into the 1920's. The Farragut mine shaft is right along this route, which has a large grate covering it, however, you are still able to walk out over the entrance. This looks to be one of the deeper mine shafts to walk over in the area. This trail also allows access to Eureka via Jenny Lind Canyon so you can get some food or fuel if needed. If you are looking to do a little easy exploring in the Tintic Mountains, be sure to run Chiulos Canyon Road and save some time for a little hiking!

Trail Difficulty and Assessment

Trail Navigation

This is a packed dirt trail that can be very dusty when dry. It connects Homansville Pass Road with Jenny Lind Canyon. Heading south, you will be climbing steadily in elevation throughout its five-plus miles in length until you reach the top. There are no major obstacles along this trail, making it suitable for just about any high clearance vehicle.

This is a fun trail, but I would rate it at about 2 due to the washed out ruts and rocks.

Nice trail to get away for a bit. This one is less used so you likely won't see many people which is also nice. This route also makes it easy to create a route to spend all day exploring. Be sure to check out Silver Dollar Mine!
