The views were incredible from the end of this trail, and we spent a couple of hours just exploring and sightseeing. We ran Onion Creek and Rose Garden Hill first, but ended up spending most of our time on Top of the World.
The sign was a little ways off of the trail, so we were lucky to find it on the first try. We worked our way up the trail and it wasn't difficult anywhere, except for an optional line that was a stair of slickrock with loose dirt at the base. We worked on it but no one got up easily.
We took in the views at the end, looking from the La Sal mountains over to Fisher Towers. Then we each took our turn driving our Jeeps close to the top and posing. It was a long way down! It made for some awesome pictures. This picture and one of your Jeep in the Golden Crack on Golden Spike seem to be the two pictures of Moab that everyone must have.
We explored a little and found a huge crack in the rock where one side is splitting off. You could see all the way to the bottom -- about 1,300 feet down. We tried to drop a rock in the crack without hitting a side but it wasn't possible. It was pretty impressive.
We started back down and saw the sunset on our way back to the Rose Garden Hill trail. Then we headed out to Dewey Bridge and then back to Moab. It was a fantastic day!
