Overview
Gold Basin Trail is a 3 mile round trip hike with 600 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 17 miles east-southeast of Moab Utah. July and August are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Hike up Gold Basin along a good trail to a nasty looking pond. However, if you continue off the official trail (on game trails and unofficial trails not in the statistics above) you can explore the entire Gold Basin Cirque area with several beautiful little alpine ponds, but beware the bears.

Check out the Official Route.






    WARNING! Hiking and outdoor related sports can be dangerous. Be responsible and prepare for the trip. Study the area you are entering and plan accordingly. Dress for the current and unexpected weather changes. Take plenty of water. Never go alone. Make an itinerary with your plan(s), route(s), destination(s) and expected return time. Give your itinerary to trusted family and/or friends.
