A good out and back walk with great views of red sandstone cliffs both close to and at a distance. On occasion it is not easy to distinguish hikers and climbers paths, but overall the trail is not difficult. Good views of intrepid climbers add to the interest. Good car parking with trailhead facilities, well signed from main road.

When I first saw Fisher Towers I had a Déjà Vu sensation. I knew I had seen those structures before. But I just happened to be staying at the Red Cliffs Lodge down the road and there was an infomercial playing on one of the channels which explained that the Fisher Towers had actually been used in many old westerns including some John Wayne pictures. Ah ha!

If you’re going to hike the trails around the Fisher Towers leave at least a couple of hours. The trails are not an easy hike, and somewhat challenging in places, but they are well worth the effort. And if you’re a photographer, be sure to catch the late afternoon light.

Our first day on the road from Denver on the way to Moab unfortunately the weather not too good but took what pictures we could.
Large formation easy drive up to it.

This is a bit of a hidden gem. No big advertising or signage. Walk is reasonably challenging in terms of steps and elevation but is accessible to most with a moderate degree of fitness. Sensational views on both sides, wonderful rock towers, no fees.

We visited Fisher Towers outside of Moab in April (perfect weather and temps!) at the start of our 10-day Southwest Utah National Parks vacation. We hiked, on a cool, blue-sky and sunshine day, the Fisher Towers trail all the way to the end/summit of the geological formation and it was in a word, incredible! Spectacular scenery, challenging spots along the trail like navigating a ladder to cross a crevasse on the trail, and watching rock climbers scale the heights of some of the towers -- they are BRAVE BRAVE BRAVE!! This was a challenging hike with rewarding, expansive views at the end where we stopped, sat, had a light lunch and appreciated the incredible scenery of the area that surrounded us. The summit overlooks western movie country where many westerns, including those in which John Wayne starred, were filmed. A fabulous hike not to be missed when in Moab.
