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.

Fun trail to hike with the kids, 8 year old twins and our 5 year old. Made it to Titan and then turned back to keep their legs fresh. A bit windy in spots and exposed - hats and sunglasses help. Not very crowded, even on UEA weekend when Arches had a line of cars. Hidden gem short drive from Moab

We started the hike about 1 hour before sunset. Somehow about 20 minutes into the hike, we lost our way off the path given in this app. When we realized we were not on the path, we felt kind of odd as we were really quite a ways off the path and we were burning daylight! We did finally get back to the path but couldn't finish it, though we did see a great sunset. From the part we did I think it's kind of moderate, but the difficulty was on keeping on the track!! We found our way back ok, though.

Incredible views from every angle! If camping nearby try for Lower Onion Creek Campground, the camground right by the trail isn't ideal. A little more detail:

While the official elevation isn’t too bad there are a lot of ups and downs. What we really enjoyed was the variety of views that popped up around every corner. Once we reached the sign for the “Titan” we posted up just off the trail and watched the climbers get to the top of this peak. Fortunately we had binoculars with us and could see their triumphs along with hearing them celebrate when getting to the top. Since we had our pup Chica with us, the Titan sign was about as far as we could go; the fixed ladder you need to climb in order to continue on the trail isn’t too dog friendly.

I was awed with the views on the entire length of the trail. The trail takes you directly beneath sheer walls of red rock. If you are lucky, you may see climbers in cooler weather. We decided to skip the crowds at Arches National Park and see the sites here in Castle Valley. We've been to Arches a few times. If you have a jeep (or a rental car), do the Onion Creek trail just 2 miles away from Fisher Towers. Negro Bill was a nice canyon about 10 miles away but Fisher Towers was the most impressive. The entrance to Arches had a 1 hour wait just to get in the front gate!

Did this hike during the summer towards the middle of the day. Bad idea. If you decide to do this trail, bring lots of water, especially during the summer.

Also, there was another trail to the side of the main one with rock cairns (rock piles) that were very misleading. If you find yourself in a narrow slot canyon that seems to wind around to another trail or ends at a rock wall, turn around because that's not the right one. Follow the map and written description posted on the sign closely.
