Tucked on a lofty perch above Kane Creek, the Moab Maiden is one of those rock art panels I would love to know the artist's inspiration and intentions. Was this, as has been named in modern times, a maiden? Was the artist a shunned lover? Or perhaps this was an artistic gift while courting? Perhaps mere doodling? The story is lost in time!

The panel is an interesting one. With a couple of old pit houses, a granary, and a second small panel, this outing is an easy way to spend a few hours. I recommend packing a lunch and picnicking at the Moab Maiden panel proper. It has stunning, sunny views that make for a perfect place to enjoy a lunch, panel, and views.

Note: The route described goes on the Jackson Trail. This is my recommended route as it is the shortest and uses the most well-used trail (minimizing impacts). The first section of this trail can flood if the Colorado River is running high, which is generally late Spring. If the trail is flooded, you CAN go up to the Amasa Back trailhead and work north from there on lesser used trails.
The lovely Kane Creek views along the way.
