Features Views

No mountain bikes nor motorized vehicles are allowed on this trail.

Overview

This incredible trail offers close up views of the Fisher Towers and the Onion Creek area while maintaining distant views that include the Colorado River, Castle Valley and the Fisher Mesa.

This trail has a western aspect and can be exceptionally hot on summer afternoons, so be prepared!

Description

From the parking lot (please sign in at register box), the trail goes down a short set of steps and then runs to the left out onto a small slickrock-covered ridge. Follow the ridge away from the main cliffs until just after it narrows and then go left down into the ravine through a small cut on the left side of the ridge. From the bottom of the ravine, the trail heads steeply up and then winds directly beneath the Fisher Towers. After swinging around the largest tower, The Titan, the trail ascends and ends on a ridge with a panoramic view.

The Fisher Towers are composed of Moenkopi and Cutler sandstones, and have eroded into many fantastical shapes. Climbers scale these mudstone towers (be cautious of running directly below a climber!).

History & Background

Fishers Towers Trail is part of the National Trails System, which is a network of scenic, historic, and recreation trails created by the National Trails System Act of 1968.
