This trail winds back and forth across the floor of Kane Creek Canyon and crosses Kane Creek many times. It then climbs steeply out of... more » the canyon along a narrow, photogenic shelf road. Officially this canyon is called Kane Springs Canyon, but most people refer to it as Kane Creek. Flash flooding is also possible, so keep an eye on the sky. Located on BLM land. For current status call Bureau of Land Management, Moab Field Office at (435) 259-2100.
Difficult. Significant erosion over the years has made this trail more difficult. Flooding wiped out a section of trail for a while; however, it was repaired by the BLM and reopened. This situation will likely happen again, so it is a good idea to check trail conditions with the BLM before heading out. The rocky ledge road after Point #7 has also gotten more difficult. Route-finding is confusing along one section of the creek where conditions change with each storm.
