Overview

Tucked away in Moab's offroad paradise lies Kane Creek Canyon. This extreme, breathtaking trail offers one of the best all-around epic adventures you can experience in Moab. From dramatic red rock walls and countless water crossings to intense washouts and technical rock obstacles, Kane Creek Canyon offers adrenaline-pumping moments and jaw-dropping scenery. In the spring and early summer, the cool flowing water of Kane Springs Creek leaves behind mud and quicksand but feeds the towering cottonwoods that thrive in the refreshing water under the shadows of desert sage and junipers that dot the cliffside. Late summer monsoons bring intense rain, often creating narrow washouts and constantly changing the trail. Whether it is your first time on the trail or your 50th, Kane Creek will always be an adventure.
