The Pinto Road

The Pinto Road is a dirt road that runs through the Northern Reaches of the Pine Valley and Harmony Mountains between Cedar City and Saint George, Utah.

My map shows this road as 009. My trip started on State Road 58 some 20 West of Cedar City. The road passes between Kane Point and the Cedar Mountains and visits the ghost town of Pinto. On my trip, I took route 769 through the town site of Hamblin, Utah.

This road looks like a great place for casual mountain biking. There are no developed campsites along the road. There were a small number of places where you could pull out and camp in the dirt.
