This is a relatively flat walk with a few rocky ledges and some stepping stone creek crossings. Ends at large arch with a natural spring coming out of the rock face which is quite interesting to see. Moderately busy walk. Cant get lost.

My greyhound Brigitte has a fragile right front leg (bone cancer). We are not supposed to be hiking but she loved this trail. Soft sand, cool stream, dog friendly. Fabulous canyon!

A very nice morning hike, but I don't think it's 3.1 miles. (It's longer). The stream crossings are many but low this time of year. A bit of rock scrambling up and down; the shorter you are the more of a scramble, but nothing to...More

While Utah is keeping the Negro Bill Canyon Trail name, BLM changed the sign to to read Grandstaff Trailhead (the last name of William Grandstaff - the cowboy who ran cattle in that area). Just wanted to clear up any confusion people might have.

This is a beautiful canyon just northeast of Moab. It's usually well-travelled, but not unpleasantly so. (You meet nice dogs along the way.) It can get warm, so earlier in the day might be better, but there's lots of shade, and most of the trail...More

We hiked half way late in the day which was cooler & had a little breeze. There was a fair amount of people with their dogs. There is a restroom in the parking lot but more parking across the highway. We'll do the whole canyon...More

You'll cross the creek/river 11 time- each way on the walk through the canyon.There are lots of rocks to step across. You can find lots of places to take a cooling dip. On a Sunday am, we encountered many folks hiking with dogs- all well...More

This easily has been the most enjoyable and lovely hike we've ever taken, rivaling the best Yosemite has to offer. And the treat of coming upon Morning Glory Arch at the turnaround is frosting on a very tasty cake.

We started the hike at 6 AM because we wanted to avoid the heat. At this time of day in June, it's still fresh and agreeable. There was only one car at the parking lot when we arrived, so it's also a plus when the...More

Hi everyone! Years ago I camped with some friends on the Green River in Moab. I believe that the campground was called "Negro Bill's," but I could be wrong. Does anyone know of some great camping sites in proximity to this trail, or on the river? I remember it being so amazing that I would like to return. Thanks!

Camped at Negro Bill last June. It's still there across from the trailhead. There are a bunch of other campsites along the river with varying amenities.
