Dellenbaugh Tunnel (Map ID: 3)
The hiking trail leads to an elongated arch, locally called a “tunnel”.
3 miles round trip; allow 3 hours round trip.
Travel north from Moab on US Highway 191. Proceed west on SR 313 for 8 miles. Turn right on the Dubinky Well Road and go north for approximately five miles. Turn left at the Spring Canyon Point Road (just before the Dubinky windmill). Go west on this road for about one mile to the base of the large Tombstone (Needle) Rock monolith. Turn left on a dirt road at this monolith and it is less than a mile to a parking area.
This hike visits Dellenbaugh Tunnel, an elongated arch on the rim above Spring Canyon. First you follow a rolling ridge of beige slickrock across open desert, then you contour along a rim with interesting down-canyon views. Eventually you meet up with a jeep road at the entrance to the tunnel.
