Winter rappel trip

It was great! Went in January and only saw 4 other people. Two awesome rappels and a few miles of hiking. We really took our time and played at both rappel spots and we took about 5 hours.

Lovely trail!

Like everyone else, I definitely think this trail is pretty crowded. However, it is still a super nice trail. It's nice for a trail run too, if you're looking for a mild, flat run!

Busy, But Pretty, Trail

Great trail close to Moab. It has recently been renamed "Grandstaff Canyon" (which was Bill's last name). Morning Glory Arch is spectacular. Do not expect solitude on this trail - it's a popular one! As others have mentioned, be careful on the numerous water crossings (or wear water shoes).
