"Moab got its name from the Bible. In the Bible, Moab is a promised land near the Jordan River that is a lush oasis in the middle of an arid and vast desert. This hike is all that and more. A sparkling stream lined with lush vegetation and framed with red rocks is a perfect haven from the scorching sun. Ancient rock art is a bonus feature. Busy with dogs, hikers, and bathing beauties, this is an easy, tail-wagging trail! Don’t expect privacy—expect fun!" Read more

Because this trail is relatively close to downtown Moab, has little to no elevation gain, ample parking at the trailhead and is easily accessible by kids and pets, this trail is very heavily attended. Add a great little swimming hole and its a recipe for a hiking party, no matter what day of the week! From the parking lot, you will follow the main trail along a creek (its on your left, you will follow "upstream') for about a mile to a mile and a half. There will be several very shallow but necessary creek crossings. When you come to a fork, stick LEFT. The swimming hole will be up into the canyon walls close to this fork. When the water levels are high enough, brave souls jump the waterfall here. Bring a chair! Its a great spot to hang out with a picnic.
