Disappearing Angel is a fairly small free standing tower just below the caprock of the rim. The best place to see it is driving up US 191 from the south - it is the obvious free standing spire visible halfway up the slopes on the west side of the Moab Valley.
Turn west onto Angel Rock road from US191 on the south side of town. Turn left at the end of the street. Disappearing Angel is visible on the slope above you. Find a good way across the private property and then head up the unpleasant talus slope to the base of the tower.

The falls are wild and scary, but clean. At the end ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
