Great self-guided trail

This trail is outside the National Parks and so is less busy, but offers an introduction to many ecologies and beautiful views.

It was a great hike, the scenery was so nice because every other hike we had done was on slick rock or desert type gravel and no shade or tree cover. This hike follows along a mountain stream and there is a lot of shade from trees and tall grasses. The cliffs on either side are very dramatic and beautiful!... More

During several tours, we were told the history of Negro Bill Canyon. While we did not hike back into the canyon due to limited time. We stopped for a quick look.

Our Moab Jett Boat Guide Jason suggested this hike and I have to say this was one of the highlights of my trip. Easy hike along a creek bed and ends with the springs that comes up from the mountain that feeds the Colorado River, great hike don't miss it!!

We went at the beginning of August during a heatwave so that wasn't too pleasurable. The trail is full of poison ivy and is not well marked. It also meanders back and forth across a stream which led to wet feet. It took a long time to get to the destination and then return to the car. Don't know if... More

Located along Colorado River byway. Plenty of parking, hike is 2.25 mi to Morning Glory Arch and back the same way, so 4.5 mi total. Trail goes along a stream that you cross several times easily. Since the trail is rocky in certain parts, waterproof boots are good though we did see some folks wearing river sandals. There is shade... More

A few hour hike with all the sights and sounds! Make sure you keep an eye on the trail. Some parts can be tricky to figure out where the trail leads! Wear shoes that you can get wet as some of the trail takes you right through the stream!

We hiked this trail to the Morning Glory arch. I believe it is around 5 miles. If had very little elevation gain. The great thing about this hike is that it crossed the stream at least 10 times. Pretty shady and the kids liked it. You have to go all the way to the end to see it. You'll know... More

Some say this is very easy, maybe so but when I was there it had rained and the stream was really high. BUT, the hike was absolutely beautiful!

Lots of lizards to see, other critters you can hear rustling. I little climbing , and some even went rappelling . Loved the story of the black cowboy and his cattle driving... More
