Fisher Towers Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"After about 30 minutes you approach the base of the first tower. These towers are fins, or monoliths, that extend hundreds of vertical feet upward with sheer cliff faces. The tower walls are unique—they look like the edges of huge sandcastles smoothed by scraping fingers down the walls. The towers are remnants of a mesa that eroded over eons. Above the towers to the east, the mesa top rises hundreds of feet higher. The trail follows benches between the base of the towers and the edges of the washes below."
--Steve Mann & Rhett Olson, 100 Hikes in Utah (The Mountaineers Books).
"This hike has one 6-foot ladder that your dog will need help with. The hike is suitable for small dogs that are easily carried up and down the ladder. Large dogs will be able to hike only to the ladder. Bring water for your dog."
--Dayna Stern, Best Hikes With Dogs: Utah (The Mountaineers Books).
"A maze of soaring sandstone towers surrounds you on this moderate hike to a high ridge above Onion Creek. The Fisher Towers Trail explores the Fisher Towers, one of the Utah canyon country’s most bizarre landscapes. The area is a maze of soaring fins, pinnacles, minarets, gargoyles, spires, and strangely shaped rock formations east of Moab. The towers, soaring monuments to erosion, are composed of dark red Cutler sandstone topped by harder Moenkopi sandstone and draped with mud curtains."
--Stewart M. Green, Best Easy Day Hikes: Moab (Falcon Guides).
"Fisher Towers is a beautiful hike far enough removed from general civilization to discourage the masses but easy enough to access that it doesn’t dissuade the casual adventurer. Well known to rock climbers, the area is somewhat
less popular with day hikers, but it is a fantastical foray into the geologic wonders that stun those who visit."
--Julie K. Trevelyan , 100 Classic Hikes Utah (The Mountaineers Books).
