Tom’s Experience hiking the Fisher Towers Trail:
This is a very fun place to just go and spend a few hours among the interesting rock formations. The hike is not too difficult and is mostly on sandstone rock without too many changes in elevation.
You are able to walk among the Fisher Towers with overlooks into the valley. The tallest tower is called Titan, and rises 900 feet above the trail.
Often, you can see climbers climbing the various towers, especially Ancient Art, which is the most popular.
The trail is 4.4 miles round trip out-and-back. There is one short ladder section that was maybe 5 feet, which is easy to climb, but our dog was too scared to be lifted up it.

There is no water on this trail and it can get very hot in the summer months so make sure you bring plenty of water.
Dogs are allowed on this trail but might have a difficult time on the ladder portion.
Trail Info: From Moab, drive east along Highway 128, following the river for about 21 miles. There will be signs directing you to the dirt (gravel) road that is fairly well maintained. Follow that road to the Fisher Towers Trailhead and Campgrounds. There is an outhouse at the trailhead. The trail is well marked and is an out-and-back hike. Total round trip mileage is 4.4 miles.
