Trail Overview

To get the best views, take this canyon trail from top to bottom. Its a really fun way to come back from Canyonlands National Park, Dead Horse Point State Park, or Gemini Bridges.

Difficulty

Easy most of the time; however, after heavy rainstorms, narrow canyon is prone to washouts and rock falls. Check conditions with BLM. Sometimes they have to close the road for repairs. Twowheel- drive vehicles okay going down, but you'll be better with 4-wheel drive going up. Our stock Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk had no problems.

Access Description

Top to bottom: Take Highway 191 north from downtown Moab about 11 miles and turn left on Highway 313 following signs to Canyonlands National Park. Travel 14.5 miles south on Highway 313 and turn left for Dead Horse Point State Park. Go another 1.6 miles to wide dirt road on left. Bottom to top: Take Highway 191 north from downtown Moab about 4 miles and turn left on Highway 279. Go south 13.6 miles to trail on right just after sign for Jug Handle Arch.
