It's easy to pass right by these en route from I-70 to Moab. Be sure to allow an hour ( or more) to get off Route 128 and explore this area. The hiking here is phenomenal! If these formations were somewhere else they would be a top attraction.

The towers are so sculptural; the views were spectacular; and the trail is interesting. At mid day you can feel lots of updrafts from the base of the towers as you hike around them. For those who are uncomfortable with heights there is one spot that might give you a butterfly or two. We had to guide one member of our group that does not like heights over that spot on our way out, but coming back she did it independantly. Definately bring lots of water and snacks. We noted that one group had troubles getting their larger dog down the ladder. I would not want to take a dog on this hike.

If you are in the Moab, Ut or Grand Junction Area this is a great half day, all day, weekend visit. There is a great out and back hike totaling 5.6 miles and what I would rate as easy to moderate depending on your fitness level. Well marked and laid out with several ascents and descents out of gullies and washes along the base of the towers. The Towers themselves are one of the most impressive roack formations found anywhere in the world and have sheer vertical walls ascending hundreds of feet straight up. Very popular with rock climbers, hikers, BASE jumpers, etc. In fact while we were there 5 jumpers parachuted off the summit of one of the highest towers in a breathtaking display of daring do. A half dozen or so climbers were on the rock as well. Also near by for exploration is Castle Valley, the Colorado River, and the La Salle mountains.

Worth the stop. The Towers were amazing. The trail is 2.5 miles one way but it seems further than that. The heat radiates off the rock so bring lots of water. They say the hike is dog friendly but I would not want to bring my dogs on it. Dogs would definately have to be on a leash due to drop offs and ledges. Trail is narrow in some places also. The scenery is beautiful. The trail takes you right around all the towers.

At the end of a dirt road that's washboard in places, the trailhead parking only accomodates approximately 10 cars. I was eager to check out this classic Moab-area hike, but apparently so were a bunch of other visitors. This was midday Sunday in late April, so others may have better luck on non-peak days.
