did what i thought was this trail about 8 years ago. fresh walls on both sides, it seems to have been graded recently and is now a very easy trail. great views and could be fun for someone if that's your thing, i was just looking for something different. only made it 2mi i think before i turned around.

oh and watch out! on my way back while going around a blind corner at about 4mph a SXS was going 15-20mph hugging the inside lane (mine) as tight as possible. they swerved/brake slammed and the woman yelled at ME.

Easy ride with the kids and mom in a 4Runner. Great way to get it wet and dirty.

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.

Have Fun!

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.
