This is one of my favorite hikes in Moab. It is a two hour hike that is dog friendly and along the way you will get to see the rock climbers do their thing. Lots of fun. When you get to the end of the hike the views are incredible of the valley and the river.

One of my favorite hikes in the area. It is not super challenging but has some steep areas so maybe not great for young children. The views are amazing!

We flew into Grand Junction, CO, for our recent trip to Moab. I found this hike on Trip Advisor while reading about traveling to Moab. Your two basic choices are I-70 west to Highway 191, then south to Moab (faster), or I-70 west to Exit 214 (scenic), then Highway 6 to Highway 128 to Moab.

We chose the scenic route on the way in, and were glad we did. This route took us right by Fisher Towers, which is easily found on typical map apps. The drive is rural, and as described by others, truly spectacular, particularly between Fisher Towers and Moab, as you essentially follow the Colorado River into town.

Many locals were surprised that we found this hike, as it is a bit out of the way for many tourists but popular with locals. The site is famous as the location for the Citibank rock climbing commercial...search for that and you can find lots of pictures and information about the hike.

There isn't a lot of parking at the trail head, but we did find a spot. The trail is fairly well marked with cairns and a rare sign. You can see the Titan (largest tower) at 1.5 miles, trail ends at 2.2 miles. Round trip took us four hours, but we visited with many other hikers and took lots of pictures. It was hot, even in April, as the trail is largely exposed and faces west.

You don't need hiking poles but I was happy to have mine. My wife wished she had hers at times on the return.

We were fortunate to see a climber duplicate the Citibank ad while we were there...quite the impressive sight!

This is a no brainer if you're driving from Grand Junction. If staying in Moab without coming in from the east, then you must drive just over 20 miles east on Highway 128 from the Highway 191 junction. In that case, Corona Arch or Negro Bill Canyon might be better "outside the park(s)" options, as they are closer to town.

This was a long planned bucket-list trip to the national parks that was interrupted by the government shutdown. Thank you Congress! Thank goodness for the NV, UT, CO, AZ state parks and Native American tourist sites. The trail is located 21 miles east of Moab along Rt. 128 (a scenic drive). The trail starts at the parking lot at the base of the towers and includes a 2.2 mile trek (4.4 mile round trip) starting at a set of steps that leads to a path across a sliprock ridge and into a ravine. From there it is all uphill – over ridges, down boulders and up a steep trail to the base of the towers. There is a diverse view along the way including spires and chimney shaped rock formations. Allow 4 hours for a round trip and carry water!

A wonderful, impressive, amazing hike that I could not rate highly enough. I had read that this was a kid friendly hike and I would add that this would be great for older children (8+) as there are sheer drop offs all along. There was no way I was letting my 3 or 5 yr old much further than the car park. I did at sunset and the change of colour (deepening red) of the rocks was amazing. The hike takes about 2 hrs if you take lots of pictures! Once you reach the Titan, you can proceed around the next "rockface/ bend" and perhaps even further. We headed back at this point as were worried about losing light. If doing a dusk hike, I would know in advance the exact sunset time and add in a bit of extra time to ensure you aren't scrambling back in the dark.
We came here in the NP shutdown period & those on the trail that had also been on hikes in Canyonlands NP much preferred this hike.
Follow the rock pile trail guides and you'll love this hike! Only part where I almost lost trail was about 2mins from the start! Rock trail seemed to lead over to a large rock on the right with a moderate ledge. This is the trail and continues on easily from here.
