Tom’s Experience hiking Hunters Canyon:
This was a pretty fun trail that follows a stream up the canyon just to the west of Moab, Utah.
This canyon is pretty similar to Negro Bill Canyon to the east of Moab. The water in the stream flows in spring, summer, and after rainstorms.
You cross the stream multiple times but there are rocks placed so you do not need to get wet unless you’d like to. There are also a few campsites at the trailhead and then farther back along the trail.
There is more vegetation in this canyon than many surrounding canyons due to the stream. There is slight elevation gain and the total trail is about 4 miles round-trip.
Dogs are allowed on this trail and I saw many off leash.
Trail Info: Follow the Kane Creek Canyon Road out of Moab for about 8 miles. The road will follow the river for a ways and is paved at the beginning and then turns to well maintained dirt. It passes some steep switchbacks as it goes down the canyon. The parking lot is on the left.
