Area South of 1-70, But North of Moab, Utah
Lots of spectatcular scenery along Onion Creek. Its a very nice, fairly moderate trail of hard dirt that leaves Utah State Hwy 129 about 30 miles north of Moab, Utah. You cross the creek many times, making it difficult to not get muddy. In fact, I counted some 35 creek crossings, guaranteeing to get your Cherokee muddy. Its a dark red color dirt.
Many features such as the Totem Pole and Stinking Springs. The creek gets its name from the water coming out of these springs, giving it an "onion" like smell.
Watch for the Totem Pole on your right, a 300-foot tall spire of rock. You will also pass by Stinking Spring, a natural spring that does not smell very good at all.
When you reach Fisher Valley, there is a backcountry farm there, as well as two possible exits. You can climb the very difficult Rose Garden Hill or head along the Kokopelli Tail, it too somewhat challenging. We opted to return the way we came...
