Hero: Moonshine Wash
small-sr Icon

Moonshine Wash is a popular canyon hike in the San Rafael Desert region. This very short, easy trail leads to the hiking trailhead and an overlook of the San Rafael River. The views above the junction with the San Rafael and Moonshine Wash are filled with healthy cottonwoods tucked into the canyon. The trail's minor sandstone ledges require high clearance. Please don't try this trail in the rain. The soil at the end is very soft. Please do not camp at the trail end where the hiking trailhead is located. Abundant camping is found along Lower San Rafael Road and other nearby trails.
