Highly recommend waking up early to hit this trail before the sun comes out and slowly cooks you alive. The first part of the trail are switchbacks that lead you up that rock face you see there. After that it levels off. I also saw...More

About 14 yrs ago I did a hike in Moab that I never forgot but couldn't remember where it was. I knew it was a steep climb up a mesa that emptied in to a serene meadow, then sheer rock formations with tons of ancient...More

This hike was convenient to downtown Moab and was interesting due to the variety of terrain. If you walk the entire trail, you will get a nice view of some petroglyphs.

The front side is quite vertical, but once you get up to the plateau, it's beautiful and breezy! Lots of flowers are in bloom with tall green grasses right now. There is no water on the hike, so this could be very hot and dry...More

Enjoyed this hike. But it was tough. Climbed the side of the mountain, then walk a few miles through a field. Got to another mountain top and found the petroglyphs. We kept walking around the mountain and found more. It was nice we could actually...More
