Watson Wander: Hiking the needles — Chesler Park Loop

From the bloggers at Watson Wander.

Over the past year or so I’ve read five or six different blog posts about a seemingly magical hike through the Needles District of Canyonlands NP called the Chesler Park Loop. The first time I was intrigued, the second time I was inspired, and by the final post I knew this we had to tackle this trail.

Chesler Park has it all — red rock hoodoos, enough uphill scrambling to make it good workout, a grand meadow filled with sage brush, and even a slot canyon-like section called “the joint”. Sign me up!

The hike clocks in at 11 miles long, and with a nearly two hour drive from our boondocking spot in Moab that meant we needed to get an early start.
