Behind the Rocks, Mill Creek Canyon, and Negro Bill Canyon WSAs Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Three BLM-administered study areas are practically in the town of Moab’s backyard. Behind the Rocks WSA is southwest of town, and as the name implies, it hides behind a band of rocky cliffs that parallel US 191. Mill Creek Canyon lies between Moab and Castle Valley, east of US 191. Negro Bill Canyon is Mill Creek Canyon’s northern neighbor, northeast of Moab. All three areas are rich in two qualities: bare rock and excellent restaurants nearby. Raptors are as common over the rocky backcountry as mountain bikers are on the streets of Moab.

Bikes and jeeps are not allowed within the boundaries of the WSAs, but traffic can be intense on surrounding bike trails and jeep roads. Some of the fins and buttresses within the WSAs are suitable for rock climbing, so expect to see rockclimbing species as well. This trail guide includes descriptions of Hidden Valley Trail (Plus Off-Trail Exploration of Redrock Fins)."
