The Bull Valley Mountains are a 30-mi (48 km) long, mountain range in southwest Utah, located in northwest Washington County. The range is adjacent the Utah border and attached to the Clover Mountains of southeast Nevada. The Great Basin Divide transects the summits of both ranges, with the Escalante Desert north and northeast of the Bull Valley Mountains, and south of the mountains the Colorado River watershed, and specifically the Santa Clara River which drains southeasterly from an escarpment along the mountain range's southeast flank.

Description and regionEdit

The Bull Valley Mountains are on the water divide between the Escalante Valley north, the location of Enterprise in the southern Escalante Desert of the Great Basin, and the watershed of the Colorado to the south. Saint George, Utah is 25 mi SSE of the range.

State Route 18Edit

Utah Route 18 traverses the base of the southeast escarpment and upper Santa Clara River; Route 18 then goes due north through the east end of the Bull Valley Mountains to Enterprise. The route also travels due south from the escarpment through Snow Canyon State Park, then to Saint George.

A separate route skirts the center of the escarpment's foothills, going from Veyo, then along the Santa Clara to Gunlock; the southwest third of the Bull Valley Mountains is drained southwest into the Beaver Dam Wash, west of the Beaver Dam Mountains. A feeder wash, Jackson Wash is located at the southwest escarpment area; the southwest of the mountain range is in the watershed of the East Fork Beaver Dam Wash, while the main Beaver Dam Wash watershed is between the Clover and Bull Valley nountain ranges.

Lower Enterprise ReservoirEdit

Lower Enterprise Reservoir, is in the north of the range on Little Pine Creek. The reservoir is just southwest of Enterprise, and about 5 mi due south of Hebron.

Peaks and highpointEdit

Numerous peaks dot the Bull Valley Mountains, most around 5000 ft. The highpoint Lost Peak, 7,516 feet (2,291 m) is in the center-west; Gutz Peak, 7,447 feet (2,270 m) is 2 mi northwest.
