Trail Overview

Chicken Corners travels along a high, steep cliff 1,000 feet above the Colorado River. Be sure to take time to stop and explore the catacomb caves along the way. Mostly composed of gravel and red dirt, this is a very popular trail with some of the most phenomenal scenery you'll encounter in Moab. You will likely run into dirt bikers and mountain bikers, so please be respectful. This ride has the option to connect to Lockhart Basin.

Difficulty

Moderate. We are tempted to call this trail easy, but there are just enough small ledges and rough spots to give it a moderate rating overall. Suitable for stock, high-clearance, 4x4 SUVs. You might not use your 4WD.

History

We've been told by a few Moab residents that the correct name for this trail is 'Chicken Corner,' not 'Chicken Corners.' After all, there is only one corner. But the plural version has been used for a long time by both the BLM and the Red Rockers, so we'll stick with that. The name is derived from Moab tour-guide passengers who choose to walk Chicken Corners rather than ride. Source:BLM website.
