Description

Chip Tower and it's neighbor Dale are the first two towers along the White Rim road if approaching from the Shafer Trail. Chip is the lower tower that is slightly closer to the road.
RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Getting There

Park at a prominent wash on the side of the tower closest to the Shafer Trail - about 5 miles from the Shafer Trail/White Rim junction. Hike up the wash and then up the first bench of the mesa. You should find an old mining road that makes the approach very casual. Follow it as it switchbacks to the mine, and then scramble up and right to get to the towers. With good route finding, it is easy 3rd class. The approach takes about 40 minutes.
