Onion Creek is such a fun trail. It's an easy trail and the drive through the canyon is amazing. This trail is good for all levels of off road driving experience.
5 stars for the amazing views on this trail. Easy drive
Managed to get our ford Explorer to the Totem Pole before we had to turn back due to mud. What we were able to see was beautiful. Next time we'll rent a jeep and explore the entire trail.
Quite a delightful drive, suprisingly busy. Many horseback riders, and bikers. There are several water crossings, especially near the begininng.
The Onion Creek Trail is close to Moab off of Rt 128. The trail is well kept and affords easy Jeeping. The attraction is the scenic narrow canyon cut by the Onion Creek, with colorful spires and Hoodoos. Along with my sons Ron and Bob, we Jeeped the 20 miles up to the junction with the Taylor Ranch and Cottonwood Trail. We crossed the Onion Creek stream at least 20 times, a few times my son Bob would enjoy splashing through the creek getting me all wet in the back of the opened Jeep Wrangler. We returned back to Moab, after a great ride through some scenic country, and a few good laughs.
