Hunters Canyon Trail Hiking – Moab Utah

Hunter’s Canyon Trail Hiking – Moab, Utah >>>

This is a beautiful trail to hike and is similiar to Negro Bill Canyon hiking in that it has a stream going down the canyon and cottonwood trees. On your way down Kane Creek Rd. try and find the large boulder off to the right of the road past the Amasa Back trailhead and view the “Birthing Scene” petroglyph!

Trailhead Location: On Kane Creek Canyon Road 7.5 miles west of its intersection with U.S. 191 (canyon is on the left, one mile beyond the steep switchbacks).

Length of Hike: 2 miles one-way; allow 4 hours round trip.

Type of Hike: Canyon bottom.  Only hikers are allowed on this trail — no mountain bikes allowed.

Area Attractions: Free-flowing stream during spring months with cottonwood trees and pools (good for dogs). A large arch is located on the right hand side of the canyon about a half mile above the trailhead.

Route Description: From the parking area at the mouth of the canyon, follow the hiker-established path about two miles up the canyon until the route gets blocked by brush.
