    Good location
    Having stopped off for a picnic here, we only did a small part of the trail, the weather had turned & we felt it was the better part of valour to retreat. fantastic range of rocks to enjoy. Highly recommended. In addition the drive to or from Moab is quite spectacular in its own right too. Well worth a visit.

    Pretty Hike
    The hike was very pretty. I believe we were almost to the end but decided to turn back because you had to walk along a very steep drop-off to get there. We were ok with the rest of the climbing but we don't do steep drop-offs. I would still recommend the trail as long as you know what you are in for. What we saw was very pretty.

    Favorite hike near Moab - including Arches Nat'l Park Hikes
    Why this hike isn’t rated THE best around Moab is beyond me. It’s about 5 miles round trip and you see absolutely gorgeous views most of the way. And the top is 360 degrees of pure beauty. We started out early (7:45ish) and spent about an hour at the top with nobody else to bother us. On the way back we encountered quite a few people on their way up. There’s a good deal of elevation with stunning views around each bend. This was by far our favorite hike.

    Magnificient Towers
    Fisher Towers near Moab is an awesome geologic feature quite different from the arches in Arches National Park.  The cathedral-like looking towers are visible from the scenic byway (Route 128).  Getting to the trailhead requires 2+ miles of driving on a dirt road which is manageable in a regular car.  The 2+ mile hiking trail has many ups-and-downs as it climbs up to a great viewing point at a hilltop.  There is a short ladder to navigate about midway point on the trail; it is easily manageable. The trail is very easy to follow and the views all along the trail are magnificent.  Fisher Towers is, for sure, worth the drive from Moab; even the drive itself is beautiful.

    Fisher Towers
    Was a cool morning and thought we’d take advantage of it. Fisher Towers is a spectacular hike. Lots of scrambling, stone stairs and exposure. Is difficult if you have bad knees especially coming back. Would highly recommend poles if you have. Beautiful views all around.

95°. Summertime did not go hiking.

Still worth the drive in stopping several times, taking it all in taking videos and pictures

This was such a beautiful hike. We only did the first part. The trail was not well marked. We had a hard time figuring out where we were going. Otherwise, we would have hiked further. There is parking. The drive there was beautiful.

This is an awesome hike! Definitely at the same level as the Corona Arch hike. I have hiked extensively in the area and in the nearby national parks...and this would be in my top 5. Get there early to get a parking spot at the trailhead, to avoid the heat, and to avoid crowds. We got there at about 7 in the morning and it was awesome hiking up. Only met one other group. The towers are spectacular. The trail is more strenuous than we thought, but not bad. It goes up and down a lot, and then up quit a bit. At this time of year there were lots of blooming wildflowers along the way. Wow! I didn't realize how steep it was until we hiked back down. Great trail...easy to follow. Probably not good for little children as there are some steep drop offs. Beautiful views from the top/end of the trail on both sides of the crest. We enjoyed peace and quiet for just a few minutes at the top before lots of hikers started to catch up and make it touristy and noisy. By the time we got back to the trailhead, the parking lot was full and cars were parked for about a hundred yards down the road. I'd say our timing all around was just about right.

He saw this turn off as we were driving towards Moab so we took it. There’s a campground and a trailhead at the end of the road. Restroom available. The enclosed kind but porta potty style. Clean though and lots of toilet paper. I was impressed. It’s a 2.2 mile hike one way to Fisher Tower. It’s amazing, the views here, just craggy and yet green.
There’s five camping sites with bbq pits and picnic benches in some. Looks like it’s first come, first served and you pay by using the envelopes provided and placing the money into the locked box. The fees are collected daily. Cash or check only. They have instructions on where you can get drinking water, dumpster or find a camp host. Not a lot of parking so it can get crowded with campers and hikers.
Nice place and it would be a comfy camping site. Just remember to bring water and cash or check.

Beautiful hike outside of Moab. Nice little bonus to the parks. The hike can be quite challenging but so worth it.
