Moonflower Canyon Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This short hike, beginning near the Colorado River, leads up a shady, cliff-lined box canyon to a reflecting pool of water at the canyon’s end. The short Moonflower Canyon Trail explores a box canyon on the east side of the Colorado River just south of Moab.

The trail threads up the narrow canyon, passing eight primitive campsites, until it ends at a cul-de-sac below steep Navajo sandstone cliffs. The canyon floor is shaded by tall cottonwoods. Water flows in the canyon after rain, especially at a rock-lined reflecting pool at the canyon’s end below a vertical pour-off. The trail is especially good in autumn when the cottonwoods blaze yellow and in summer when they provide welcome shade."
