The entire length of the trail is decorated with an enormous variety of rock art, sculpted by the wind and the rain from the soft red sandstone, and it is in large part this spectacle that makes the hike so delightful. The last major tower on the route is the Titan, which the trail passes after about 1.5 miles. After passing the Titan the path veers southwest onto a long ridge from which you will be rewarded with a majestic view of the Towers. The nearest town is Moab, Utah about 16 miles to the southwest. The The Fisher Towers can be accessed from Fisher Towers Road off of Route 128.
This is a beautiful hike that is up hill 90% of the way in, I definitely worked up a sweat. You arrive at fisher towers at the trailhead and hike around them to viewpoint from a different angle, it was cloudy when I did it but very hot, the towers provided some shade in the after noon but if your not one for going up hill the whole first half of the hike, you can enjoy fisher towers right when you pull up to the trail.
Hiked this trail on March 4, 2017. 60 degrees and sunny. Cannot imagine doing this in the heat of summer though. The trail is completely exposed and it must get crazy hot. Views around every corner are amazing!! Definitely recommend this hike.
Do not leave Moab without doing this trail! By far the coolest trail we did in Moab. Breathtakingly beautiful, fun hike all around for us and our dog.
Went in early April so the temps weren't too bad but it would be hot in the summer since there's no shade. Not too far of a hike for killer views!
Bring lots of water and sunscreen! This trail is gorgeous but there's little shade.

Very well marked until near the end. The last 0.3 mile after the view of the Titan is a bit sketchy. I think that it is good enough to stop at the view of the Titan.
The real BLM trail extends about 0.5 mile more that the one described here at AllTrails.
Throughly enjoyed hiking the trail and viewing the climbers and the base jumpers.
Much faster to come back. Could be overly hot in summer due to sun exposure.
fun out and back, amazing views
Excellent scenery and a lot of variety!
Fav hike in Moab! Definitely a more moderate trail, very enjoyable- all the ups and downs, the towers, seeing the rock climbers, views at the end, lots of photographic moments along the way! Worth the drive out from Moab!
For sure a moderate trail rather than an easy one if you are not a regular hiker. Super fun with great views.
I would definitely rate this trail as moderate and not easy. There are a lot of ups and down on the trail so the elevation gain is a bit deceiving. Especially as most of the trail is exposed and there is very little to no shade. Recommend hiking very early morning or late evening (especially late spring-early fall) All that said, it's absolutely gorgeous and well worth it!
One of my favorite trails in Moab. These rock formations truly feel like they are other-worldly. The trail is fairly easy although I would recommend keeping an eye on where it leads because it is easy to lose track of. The view over Castle Valley is nothing short of amazing as well. This is a MUST SEE for anybody wanting to experience Moab. Be sure to yell out a good holler to hear the echoes!
