Did this one years ago when I was younger (Thank goodness) - lots and lots of switch-backs. But once you're on top, it's very pretty.

This hike was convenient to downtown Moab and was interesting due to the variety of terrain. If you walk the entire trail, you will get a nice view of some petroglyphs.
