I decided to go on a quick weekend trip over to Moab just to get away for a day. After work on Friday morning I drove west into Utah and arrived in Moab at lunch time. The streets were pretty crowded with cars and the sidewalks busy with people, I was afraid I might be arriving a bit too late on a weekend and wouldn’t be able to find a good campsite. After searching many of the BLM campgrounds in the area for about an hour, I finally came across an open site and quickly claimed it for the night. I have visited Moab a few times to check out Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, but never this far out on the 128 to the Fisher Towers area.
After setting up my tent I headed out for the Fisher Towers Trail which is located at the campground. The trail is 2.2 miles each way and has a total elevation gain of 984 feet. It took me just under 2 hours to complete a roundtrip hike, the trailhead information recommended allowing 4 hours and also gave an elevation gain of around 600 feet.
