|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
The Groom is a 310 foot wingate tower up Bride Canyon. The formation is three towers northwest of the Bride and rises out of a slight alcove in the rock walls. A seep comes out its west face.
Drive up to the Little Valley. When the Valley constricts a small canyon will be seen going to the south. There is a sign showing that campsites are up the canyon. Go to about 300 meters from the end of the canyon and park. Look for the tower on the left side of the road.
Walk up a creek bed, then the scree slope... its about 150m from the camp site.
