NOTE: While dogs are allowed on leash, there is a small ladder about 1.5 miles into the trail that may be difficult to pass with a large dog. 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.

Cool rock formations and great views of the area. Went early, but encountered lotssss of people on the way back. Just FYI for parking and social distancing purposes.

Did this May 26th, and the sun was hot! The trail is well marked and moderate. The trickiest part about this trail is being careful not to slip on the sandy areas. So, I recommend grippy shoes, but it’s not too bad. This trail has amazing views the entire way. Great flowers and a couple of cute lizards. Would love to return one day to climb Titan’s Tower.

Went around 10:30 am and it was getting very hot, so bring water. A lady fell in front of me so wear shoes that don’t slip... as for hike it was awesome landscape of red rocks and great canyon vistas. I would def do again but earlier,.. it’s pretty out there so it’s got a wide desert feel! Parking wasn’t a issue lot has about 15 spots. I bet sunset would be great to see on this hike . Have fun !!

Fisher Towers trail outside of Moab, Utah is a great hiking option for public land hikers. No fees!! The trail includes about 1,800 feet of elevation gain in under 2.5 miles on the way out. Abundant views the entire way and no picture or video can capture the magnitude of the towers - but I tried. Total trail can be less than five miles (out and back) if you stick to the trail. But take advantage of numerous off trail opportunities to explore. No options for water filtration so bring what you need. We hiked on a weekday and were the first vehicle at the trailhead at 9am. Below is a link to a video of our hike in Spring of 2020 - go to YouTube and search for “Nolan Ventures”. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FPLN2jtKPRM

Hiked this trail at end of March on a beautiful, sunny, 70 degree weather day. Went in with little to no expectations and was shocked at the sheer magnitude of the towers and the expansive vista views throughout the entire trail. This trail is very well marked and is a National Park caliber hike. Reminded me somewhat of the Peekaboo Trail in Bryce Canyon, minus the crowds. 10/10 would do this hike again.

Following this trail can be tricky at first, but once you are able to navigate the start it’s a really GREAT hike!! I loved the views this trail offered. Starting early is the move! On our way back to the trailhead we saw lots of people just beginning their hikes! Parking lot was full before 9:30am on a Saturday

Fisher Towers are amazing. Really need to go on the trail to understand how large and tall the sheer cliffs of the towers actually are. Trail is moderately difficult; one section that requires use of a metal ladder that is anchored to the stone. It was a bit muddy in spots, but not terrible. Some very minor scrambling. Lots of older folks and little kids were on the trail. Somewhat crowded in late morning on a Saturday but earlier in the morning was bliss; w/ impressive views and majestic cliffs. One of our family favorite places now.

Did this hike on an overcast day in February - amazing overall but seeing snow on the mountains gave me a little bit of a scare and helped me return in a hurry! Very clear trail, helpful due to the number of wrong turns you could make that could make your stomach drop if you're scared of heights. A few sketchy bits where the trail is washing away a bit and eroding off to a drop off, but overall amazingly worth it.

We hiked this trail in February and had a great time, although it was sometimes difficult to stay on the path. The carins were helpful, as well as the path signs. The trail was very muddy in some areas with icy snow. We did this with an 8-year-old and 6-year-old and they did great. The 6-year-old had to be carried some. There were some drop-offs that we had to carefully watch our kids around. We would do it again. Three cheers for Fisher Tower!

What an amazing trail with breathtaking panorama and dizzying views of famous monoliths. Some very muddy patches mid February.

It was beautiful! Even with a cloud covered day. Some ice and lots of mud made things a little tricky so boots are recommended.

A really fun trail with spectacular views! A note on the elevation profile though - I think most GPS trackers are getting confused at the same point in the hike. I used Strava to track it, but there is no way you climb 1800ft along this hike. However, that is what my Strava showed, matching all trails elevation profile. My partner also used Strava to track, but he stopped tracking at the turn around point (where you see trail end in the log) and it showed an elevation gain of about 800ft. This matches the information sign at the trail head as well. That being said, we really enjoyed the hike - lots of neat rock formations and photo opportunities. It was a bit muddy in spots and I used my trekking poles on the way down for some extra assistance.

Amazing... every viewpoint was breathtaking and the trail was fun - we had 5 inches of powder but everyone on the trail supported each other on finding the right path - will be back

One of the top hikes in the area. Never very crowded and always rewarding. You do need to trust the trail markings -- there are places where it looks like it is going to be very precarious, but when you get there, it actually isn't that bad. There is one place, at about 2 miles from the start, where you come out past a rock outcropping and there is a conspicuous cairn off to the left. That is not the main trail -- it takes you off onto an isolated "island" from which you can't get back down to the base unless you backtrack exactly how you came. The correct trail goes straight. On the way back you want to be especially careful not to go off in that direction.
