Honor Corridor / Solemnity Walk
The Fallen Peace Officer Trailhead will serve as the site to honor the lives and service of Utah’s fallen law enforcement heroes. Fourteen officers from across the state of Utah have been chosen to be honored in this year’s Fallen Peace Officer Trail Honor Corridor and Solemnity Walk. The Honor Corridor/Solemnity Walk will pay tribute to these officers, their families, and their agencies. Each fallen officer will be honored with a designated area dedicated to the fallen, their family, and their agency. A representative from each fallen officer’s employing agency will be present to honor their fallen and host the public as they remember the fallen and the sacrifice made for the citizens of Utah. The Honor Corridor/Solemnity Walk will be open to the public from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm and is restricted to pedestrian traffic only.

Trail Description
The Fallen Peace Officer Trail is located approximately twelve miles north of Moab. The trail is a fourteen- mile loop of primitive (back-country) roads from U.S. Highway 191 to the border of Arches National Park. The trail is classified as moderately difficult as it negotiates a variety of rocky washes, rock steps, slickrock, and sand scattered with juniper trees. The trail travels through areas rich in geology with spectacular views into Arches National Park, dramatic views of the La Sal Mountains, and passes the remains of a 1967 western film set for “Blue” that starred Terrence Stamp, Joanna Pettet, and Ricardo Montalban.
