Named after rancher/prospector William Granstaff, Negro Bill Canyon follows a perennial stream that drains into the Colorado river. The trail, shaded by cottonwood and willow trees, stays near the creek for 1.85 miles, then ascends a canyon wall and ends under Morning Glory natural bridge. Family and dog friendly, it's an easy trek until the short climb. Access is free on BLM land. The natural bridge is a cool destination and a good place for a snack. It has a span of 243 feet, which is the 6th longest span in the U.S., according to BLM statistics. Watch for poison ivy growing under the bridge.

    We spent most of the day driving to Moab and had a couple of hours to hike. We picked this canyon because of it's length and arch at the end. We started hiking around 4pm and made good time in. The trail is in great condition as it gently climbs a picturesque canyon. We arrived at Morning Glory Arch and took a variety of pics. From there we cruised back to the TH. This was the perfect way to start off our long weekend in Moab. Our plan is Arches on Friday followed by Canyonlands on Saturday.

    got the idea for this hike from one of my climbing partners
    nice little canyon hike along a clear running stream
    nine crossings
    slightly overcast and very green along the water
    very enjoyable hike on blm land just off the colorado river
    well worth exploring if you're in the area
