When driving from Kanab, UT towards the House Rock Valley Road, Delorme Topo always suggested to take a shortcut via Five Mile Mountain Road. In 2008 we thought, we will give it a try. Five Mile Mountain Road is an easy gravel road, which starts from US89 and connects to HRVR.
The map at the bottom of the page shows the trail, we were driving and the Delorme Topo version.
The trail starts very easy on a higher plateau:
As a part of our one week Arizona Strip trip, where we also visited Kelly Point, we went down to Grand Gulch Mine. We started from our Poverty Mountain camp. On CR103 we drove to the south, before we made first a right turn at 12S 26453X 402510X (UTM/NAD27) to visit the Wayne Gardner memorial (BLM1071). This memorial is for a rancher who lost his life trying to get feed to his sheep during the terrible winter of 1949.
The trail itself is easy to drive...
