(Taken from "Moab Area Hiking Trails" from the Moab Information Center). This is a constructed trail hike that offers closeup views of the Fisher Towers and Onion Creek area. The Colorado River, Castle Valley, Fisher Mesa and Book Cliffs are visible in the distance.

The hike skirts the west facing cliff wall, on hot days, it is suggested that you hike in the morning. From the parking lot, the trail goes down a short set of steps and the runs to the left out onto a small slickrock covered ridge. Follow the ridge away from the main cliffs until just after it narrows and then go left down into the ravine through a small cut on the left side of the ridge. From the bottom of the ravine the trail heads steeply up and then begins to wind directly beneath the Fisher Towers. After rounding the largest tower, The Titan, the trail ascends and ends on a ridge with a panoramic view.

Directions:

Take utah Scenic Byway 128. Just after mile marker 21, turn south and drive 2.2 miles on an improved dirt road to a parking lot. If you see a parking lot for Onion Creek, you have taken the wrong road. Turn around, go back to the byway, turn right and make the next right.

(Or just continue on the Onion Creek Road for a rather hair-raising drive that can be done in a stock vehicle...with steady nerves...)
