Summary: The 3 rated Kane Creek Canyon trail offers 60 water crossings in an otherwise thirsty and desolate area.
Location: Take Kane Creek Road leaving Highway 191 by McDonald’s in Moab. Stay left at the junction where the Hurrah Pass trail forks off to the right. Kane Creek Canyon borders the “Behind the Rocks” area on the south between the Colorado River and Highway 191.
Scenery: The deep canyon is beautiful from end to end but changes significantly in character from the bottom to the top end.
The Trail: Creek crossings and more creek crossings are the order of the day on this trail. Watch out for a sudden heavy rain that can make the crossings impassible. Also watch out for quicksand. Toward the upper end are some high rough cliff wall sections that are attention getting.
