Hold on -- we need a cable!
From the Fisher Towers trail, hikers can watch climbers make their way to the top of their chosen sandstone tower and can enjoy views of distinctive buttes in the distance (Castle Rock, the Monastery and the Monsignor). But there's one section of slickrock on the trail that's too steep to climb safely without a secure cable to hold onto. Of course, athletic climbers can bound up the slickrock like mountain goats, but casual hikers could use some help.

Spectacular rock formations east of Moab
This is one of the most amazing trails I've hiked. Location is right off the river highway east of Moab so it's convenient if you're coming or going in the Colorado direction. The scale of the rocks is vast but you're right in the middle of them, so it's more intimate than the national monuments and of course not so crowded. Trail is well developed and easy to follow.
