Cameo Cliffs/Hook and Ohv Ladder Trail System

Bureau of Land Management, Utah.

The Cameo Cliffs Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) is located approximately 30 miles south of Moab, and 18 miles north of Monticello. The Cameo Cliffs SRMA emphasizes motorized recreation, especially ATV use, on a series of old mining routes that are marked for the public. A trailhead and parking area is provided just east of U.S. Highway 191 (the sign on the highway says “OHV Trailhead”) Approximately 50 miles of route are marked within the area.

The ATV trail system accesses a beautifully scenic area. We invite you to explore the trails and take in the scenery. We ask all users to stay on the trails, in order to preserve the scenery for you and others to see. Please be considerate of the next visitor, and confine all motorized and mountain bike travel to designated roads and trails.

The roads that are not marked for ATV use are a heritage of both ranching and minerals exploration activities. The Old Mail Trail from Monticello to LaSal is a part of one of the trail loops. As you enjoy the Cameo Cliff Special Recreation Management Area, think of the effort that early settlers went through to create these travel corridors.

There are no fees in Cameo Cliffs, please just help us keep the area nice by staying on the designated, signed trails and packing out your trash and any other trash you may find along the way. Remember, responsible recreation keeps trails open.
