Headlight Pass

This is a low mountain gap in the Cricket Mountains. It is the easiest way to access Sevier Lake from the east side.

5.START-END WEST: jct Cricket Rte 1 - Black Rock Pass Rd
6.START-END WEST ALT:low point on Sevier Lake, on a spur road


From East.
The turnoff from the paved road is signed as going to Headlight Canyon. It's a barely noticeably climb towards a lip of rocks to the north. In my case the most memorable thing have always been the strong winds. The road crests between two low ridges running north - south.

From West (described downwards). Soon after the summit of the pass, a turnoff to the right leads to higher points via Headlight Canyon. This route turns west and heads down towards a view of Sevier Lake. The lower part has two options, paralleling Sevier Lake in either direction - that is Cricket 1, the Shoreline Drive equivalent on Sevier Lake.
