Needles Hiking Trails

Search Moab Utah

This trail system includes both short and longer trails within the Needles District of Canyon lands National Forest. Many trails interconnect allowing for a variety of options for day or overnight hikes. Trails are marked with cairns (small rock piles); do not disturb cairns or build new ones. Signs are located at trailheads and intersections. All backcountry trails are primitive and rough. Water may be found in some canyons, but rarely available in others. All water should be purified before drinking. Spring and fall are the preferred times of year for hiking due to temperature and water availability. Traveling on four wheel-drive roads into Salt Creek, Horse and Lavender canyons by vehicle, bicycle or horse requires a day theme permit. All overnight stays, except those at Squaw Flat Campground, require a backcountry permit. Visitors are responsible for knowing and following backcountry regulations.
