Manti-La Sal National Forest Hiking

The Moab area is jam-packed with hiking possibilities; and those possibilities don’t end in the desert. Thirty minutes away in the La Sal Mountains are incredible woodland hikes with mountain lakes, aspen groves, and mountain passes; the options are limitless.

La Sals Aspens

Our Favorite Hikes in the La Sals

Burro Pass Trail (7.1 miles) Strenuous

Trail narrows to switchbacks as it winds through wild meadow and tall forest. This trail gains in elevation, expect some steep climbs and descents.

Clark Lake Loop Trail (2.8) Strenuous

The only lake in the La Sal Mountains you have to walk to in order to enjoy is Clark Lake. But what a beautiful walk it is through spruce and fir trees. Take the connecting Forest Trail to make a fun and worthwhile loop.

Hazard County Trail (6 miles) Moderate

There’s a good possibility you’ll have the opportunity to meet a few folks enjoying the trail on bike or horseback. Remember hikers yield to horseback riders. This a beautiful trail which leads through a mix of open meadow, aspen trees, and Gambel oak.

Warner Lake to Oowah Lake (2 miles) Moderate

You can do the two miles of trail or you can take an extended easy wander and make it longer. We prefer the extra wander. This great little hike leads through stands of aspens and can get a bit rocky and squishy where water seeps across the trail.

Squaw Springs Trail (8.6 miles) Moderate

This diverse trail will take you through dark forest, past springs, down an aspen lined trail, across creeks, over a bridge, and past the ruins of an old cabin. Be prepared to step over rocks and exposed tree roots, and encounter a deer or two.
