Moab Information

Moab, Utah is a year-round accessible land of adventure. Surrounded by thousands of square miles of breathtaking red rock landscape, this town also boasts the wondrous Colorado River. This is the only Utah destination where visitors can explore two of The Mighty 5® National Parks, Canyonlands National Park and Arches National Park, from one location. Arches National Park can be reached within a few minutes drive whereas Canyonlands is only less than an hour away! If you’re looking for a fantastic view of the Colorado River, head to Dead Horse Point State Park, just a short drive from town. Visible from Moab, the La Sal Mountains are only 20 miles away! This alpine mountain range is the second highest in Utah, with peaks reaching nearly 13,000 feet. Diverse landscapes and astounding scenery have contributed to Moab’s rich history of filmmaking. Visit the Red Cliffs Lodge for a tour through the Museum of Film.

For the most variety of outdoor choices in Moab, plan a visit anytime from early spring to late fall. Activities such as hiking, mountain biking and climbing are best taken advantage of in the cooler desert months throughout spring and fall. Once the temperatures start to rise and the snow begins to melt, it is the ideal time to seek out a rafting adventure or canyoneering trip! For the biggest river thrills, check out trips departing in late spring and early summer when the snow run-off is highest. Downtown shopping, off-road excursions, driving scenic byways, skydiving, ballooning, scenic flights and base jumping can be enjoyed throughout the entire year! Take note, Moab is busiest in the fall but come winter, it returns to its natural state of quiet, vast wilderness.

Home to the greatest mountain biking in this world, Moab offers a massive variety of trails for mountain bikers of all ages and experience levels. Moab is most well-known for Slickrock Bike Trail, a highly technical and challenging trail that many consider to be the ultimate mountain biking excursion. For those looking for easier scenic views or a great family outing, check out Dead Horse Point State Park. Please click here for a comprehensive list of mountain biking areas, trails and maps to compliment. Bicycle can be rented, purchased and/or repaired at shops such as Poison Spider Bicycles, Rim Cyclery and Chile Pepper Bike Shop, just to name a few.

If off-road adventure via jeep or four-wheeling is your jam, Moab is a go-to destination! Near endless 4×4 trails and old mining roads at your fingertips will leave plenty of room to explore. Trails can be discovered with your own vehicle, by renting a jeep, or taking a guided tour. Detailed 4 wheel drive maps and trail guides can be found at the Moab Information Center (MIC). Trail difficulties range from simple and scenic 2-wheel drive to the utmost challenging 4-wheel drive trails. Jeeps and tours can be booked all over Moab, but here are a few to get you started: Twisted Jeeps, Barlow Adventures, High Point Hummer. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to find a list of 4×4 trails in Moab and their descriptions/details.

Don’t let winters in Utah discourage you; Moab has numerous opportunities to enjoy the cooler months. Check out Arches National Park for some epic snowtography, where you are sure to find sunlit, snow-covered arches beaming in the winter sun. There is even backcountry skiing in the La Sal Mountains for every skill level! If you’re hoping to extend the climbing season, check out Big Bend in addition to Wall Street (morning to mid-day) and Kane Creek (afternoon). These spots benefit from daylong sun exposure, ensuring just the right warmth for all day climbing. Not too far from Kane Creek Road, a hand can be tried at Base Camp disc golf, open all winter long. Last, but not least, there is opportunity for snow biking along the Porcupine Rim or snowshoeing within Bryce Canyon.

Moab is an outdoor enthusiasts dream coupled with small resort town hospitality, making it one of the most sought after destinations in the American Southwest. With such an extensive list of outdoor activities, you’re sure to work up an appetite for any meal. Moab boasts two breweries alongside a diverse array of cuisines, including a surprising number of gourmet-class restaurants.
