This primitive trail makes a wide loop through rocky hills and valleys in the Richardson Amphitheater east of Moab. The 3-mile Amphitheater Loop Trail makes an open loop through the wide Richardson Amphitheater south of the Colorado River. This great hike offers a wilderness experience close to UT 128 but is not recommended for beginning hikers. The trail can be hard to follow at times, particularly after rain storms, which may wash away parts of the trail and the cairns which mark it. The trail is, however, close to the highway and crosses open land with broad views, making it difficult to get lost.
