Route Description for Jackson Hole Trail
The Jackson Hole hike is a long trail through a beautiful desert landscape just outside of Moab. This hike is shared by mountain bikers, and ATV/OHV drivers so be aware of your surroundings and let motorized vehicles and bikes pass. As with any hike in the desert, this trail gets hot and sunny so be sure to bring a good sunhat and more water than you think you’ll need. This hike may not feature the jaw-dropping vistas of Arches National Park, but if you are looking for a long, quiet hike with the opportunity to see desert flora and fauna, the Jackson Hole trail is a great choice for you.
From the parking area, follow the gravel road north for 6.4 km, staying to the right at the various divides. After 6.4 km, the trail will split- this marks the beginning (and end) of the 6.4 km loop section. Take a left to follow the loop clockwise. Stay to the right at the two forks along the loop and carry on along the trail until you arrive back at the start of the loop.
Once you’ve completed the loop, follow the gravel path back south to the parking area.
Getting to the Jackson Hole Trail Trailhead
From highway 191 in Moab, follow Kane Creek Boulevard for 27.4 km as it turns into Kane Creek Road and then a Forest Road. Park at the first junction- the Jackson Hole Trail begins on the gravel trail heading north.
