Access Issue: 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

Description

Beautiful sandstone formation with a huge amphitheater and large window.

Getting There

Take Highway 191 south of Moab for ~23-25 miles (<1 mile past La Sal Junction). You are looking for a gravel road on your right (west) signed as LOOKING GLASS ROAD (used to be called Hatch Wash road). Turn right and travel west 1.4 miles.
  • Option 1: (May not be passable depending on recent rains) Turn left onto a deep sand 'road' for 0.3 miles. Before a ranch fence, turn right and follow the 'road' to the base of Looking Glass. 10 second approach.
  • Option 2: Continue on the road and take a left just after passing Looking Glass rock. Park at the side of the road.
