Description

Hell's Backbone starts from Hwy. 12 just south of Boulder and climbs up and around Box Death Hollow Wilderness. It features a dramatic stretch of road along a narrow ridge with sheer drops on both sides and crosses wonderful narrow bridge. The route has some great views out over the range as it twists through pine, spruce and fir forests. It joins Posey Lake Road and returns to Hwy 12 at Escalante. The 30 mile route is primarily dirt and gravel. It is difficult when wet and closed in the winter. Plan on spending about 2 to 2-1/2 hours with stops.
