Description

This area is "a beautiful canyon" (Paul Ross) off of state highway 191 immediately southeast of Wilson arch. The area is very peaceful, pristine, full of slickrock and playful rock formations. Five Entrada sandstone towers can be found here. Mid height vehicles can make it back here. (ie- Forester = no problem)
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

Immediately south of the Wilson arch rest/view area is a turn off between mile markers 99 and 100. Turn east onto this gravel road. As some buildings come into view ahead, there will be a gate to your right. Again, turn east (right) through this gate, please close it, and continue on this road until it dead ends at a large parking lot. A "road" does continue but park here. To reach Tranquility Tower, the largest tower to the north, follow this road which will turn into a path.

Just curious as to who added the nice shiny bolts to Moby Dick's head in the last few months? I know there where no bolts earlier this spring. Is it now doable without the need of pins? Jun 12, 2012
