You'll get a workout

Did this one years ago when I was younger (Thank goodness) - lots and lots of switch-backs. But once you're on top, it's very pretty.

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.

My husband and I ran this trail while our kids were rock climbing and loved it. But we cracked up that it was listed as 'easy trail run' - the first 500 feet are straight up! wonderful views, gorgeous surroundings, vigorous uphill then beautiful run along a valley. spectacular.

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 for dogs in hot temps.

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 touch the petroglyphs and thankfully no vandalism. Do be careful because there are many options... More

I have hiked this 3 times and loved it every time. I hike twice from the Hidden Valley trailhead, and once from the Moab Rim Jeep trailhead and hiked through to the Hidden Valley trailhead. I will dothis hike again because the scenery is so great!

Though not a well-know tourist attraction like the trails at Arches National Park, Hidden Valley was definitely one of my top hiking picks in my recent visit to the region. The route from the Hidden Valley trailhead to the Colorado River is about 6 miles, as I recall. I definitely recommend a car shuttle, so you can enjoy the entire... More

The trailhead is easy to find, just outside Moab. It starts out with switchbacks, boulders and scree as you ascend for almost a mile. Then, it evens out, and you get to what we called a meadow. There are actually two meadows, one right after the other. The whole time you are surrounded by towering red rock cliffs and formations.... More

This 5 mile round trip hike too us a bit over 2 hours to walk at a good pace. Nice rocky climb to get up to a meadow area. If you walk about 1.5 miles (over 2 "humps/saddles" and then take first right you can climb up and back to see some great petroglyphs. Wonderful hike. We will sleep well... More

We were the only ones on the trail for the first 30 minutes or so. It offers a fun zig zag path up the side of a mountain with lots of opportunities to see rabbits and lizards. There are a few sections where you have to be cautious of your footing, but I'm afraid of heights and still managed just... More
