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.

Although the views are stunning, after about 1.75 miles you reach a 6 foot ladder, impassable for our dogs. This was recommended as a dog-friendly Trail, but due to the ladder it turned out to be not the best for dogs. But the proximity of the soaring Towers is hard to beat, gorgeous!
