Echo Park Road
The Echo Park Road is a fourteen mile (one way) unpaved road that takes drivers from the Harpers Corner Road to the banks of the Green River at Echo Park. While much of this road is graded and covered with gravel, several dry wash crossings and a steep descent down a series of switchbacks known as the dugway over the first two miles, makes the use of a high clearance vehicle strongly advised. Due to the clay soil, the dugway is not passable when wet. Always check the weather before heading down the Echo Park Road.
