Description

Chicken Corners is a nice diversion from a Lockhart Basin multi-day ride, or a good extension of Hurrah Pass.

You follow jeep road out to a narrow stretch, a spectacular viewpoint, and a short hiking trail extension that will have you biting your nails, even if heights don't usually bother you.

As one guidebook explains the trail name: "The road is quite wide as it crosses high above the Colorado River, but it's still very scary if you are not used to high shelf roads. Once through Chicken Corners, look across the River to Thelma and Louise Point. The final dramatic scene of the movie was shot there."

Can you get down to the river at the end of this trail or does it cliff out? Nov 18, 2018
You aren't going anywhere near the Colorado River on this route. The only ways to access the river along the Lockhart Basin road (that I know of or can imagine) are 1) on the backside of Hurrah Pass, and 2) at Lockhart Canyon. Technically, you can also hike down Indian Creek to the river, but you aren't taking a bike down there, and it is not a day hike. Nov 27, 2018
