Trail Overview
Fallen Peace Officer Trail
This trail sits between Hwy 191 and Arches National Park. It is a rocky loop that meanders up to a high ridge providing great views across an expansive valley. Sevenmile Rim, Monitor and Merrimac Buttes can all be seen, as well as Tower Arch. Be sure to stay on the designated route and be careful not to cross over the boundary into Arches National Park.
History
The idea for this trail was a direct result of the shooting of Utah State Parks Officer Brody Young in 2010. He survived multiple gunshots while conducting a traffic stop at a Moab trailhead. The trail honors him and all Utah fallen peace officers who died or were seriously injured in the line of duty. Contributions go to the officer’s families.
Getting There
From the Colorado River bridge north of Moab, continue north 13 miles on Highway 191. Just after you go past Mill Canyon Road on the left, watch for sign to trail on the right. As you enter, bear left and head north a short distance to parking lot.
