Reviews

Spectacular rock formations east of Moab

This is one of the most amazing trails I've hiked. Location is right off the river highway east of Moab so it's convenient if you're coming or going in the Colorado direction. The scale of the rocks is vast but you're right in the middle of them, so it's more intimate than the national monuments and of course not so crowded. Trail is well developed and easy to follow.
