Most Viewed Things to Do in Moab

  • 1. Arches National Park

    Some wonderful hiking trails, all not very long and some very easy to walk from the car. A good mix with some primitive trails and well maintained trails. Entry into the park is only $10 and good for...

  • 2. Canyonlands National Park

    This is the other National Park within spittin' distance (or at least part of it is), and one I prefer to Arches due to a lot fewer bodies to contend with and slightly cooler temps. This park covers...

  • 3. Dinosaurs Tracks

    Located off Mill Canyon rd. This is an interpretive trail with signage of where to look for the fossils and a description of what type of dinosaur they belong two. There are several different types....

  • 4. Whitewater Rafting

    Splore runs adaptive whitewater rafting programs out of Moab, Utah for people with disabilities and special needs. Their trips are FANTASTIC! The staff is awesome, they make great food and best of...

  • 5. Petroglyphs

    From the parking lot, walk the trail that leads to the slab with the dinosaur tracks. Work your way up to the cliff above. Along that wall and on a few fallen slabs are some very nice Petroglyphs.

  • 6. Fisher Towers

    This is a 5-star, must-do for hikers!! Nature's gothic cathedral of soaring sandstone towers - the highest, Titan, topping out at 900 feet - glow fiery red at sunset, and on our first crack at it I'd...

  • 7. Negro Bill Canyon

    It’s the rare hike I wouldn’t do again but this is one of those. Negro Bill is an oft-recommended local trail so we thought we should go see what the fuss was about. We did it one sunny September...

    more
  • 8. Dead Horse Point State Park

    The main reason to visit this State Park is to enjoy the fabulous view over the canyonlands and the winding Colorado River below. It is 2000 feet down to the river's edge and from this viewpoint you...

  • 9. Four Wheeling

    After a full day of hiking through Arches National Park, Mom and I explored the slickrock in a specially outfitted Hummer. Our guide was great and very well versed in the history and natural beauty of...

    more
  • 10. Faux Falls

    Located near the Ken's Lake campground. When I was there it was during several days of thunderstorms. The water fall was really gushing. Not sure how much water when there hasn't been rain in a while....

  • 11. Hole In The Rock

    Off Route 191, just outside of Moab, Utah, this underground home has become a symbol tourist attraction. Having no trees for lumber out in this area of Utah, Albert and Gladys Christensen "blasted"...

  • 12. Mountain Biking

    There were a number of mountain bikers along the Potash Rd and Hwy 128 in some spots. Most seemed to be novices, and took the trail paths very slowly, and were walking 1/2 the way. The ascent is steep...

    more
  • 13. Corona Arch

    This is another hiker's gotta-do. Corona rivals - or even surpasses - most of those found at Arches National Park and is a free trek besides. The link I'm attaching has complete directions so I'll...

    more
  • 14. Ken's Lake

    A excellent place to watch sunset while in Moab is at Ken's Lake. This is a camp ground run by the Bureau of Land Management. There is also a day use area with pit toilets on site. In May, sun sets...

    more
  • 15. Gemini Bridges

    This is a real trip to take as a side diversion form the parks in the area. The turnoff from Hwy 313 that goes to Canyonlands is about 13 miles form Hwy 191. Take that route for sure. If you were...

    more
  • 16. Poison Spider Trail

    I went up the Poison Spider Mesa which is off Potash Rd instead of even thinking of driving the 2WD SUV. Potash Rd is 3 miles north of town and off Hwy 191 on the west side. It is a 17 mile road, and...

    more
  • 17. Pictographs

    This is the best of all the "Rock Art Tour" stops but also the one that involves the most work. High up in a rock alcove overlooking Hwy 191 is a very old and very rare panel of Barrier-style...

    more
  • 18. Moab Information Center

  • 20. Newspaper Rock

    En route to Moab, we stopped briefly at Newspaper Rock to have a look at the ancient petroglyphs left by the Puebloan people hundreds of years ago. The sandstone cliff is covered with images of...

    We were having a post-hike brew at Woody's and noticed a creek just below the patio with a paved trail running alongside; hmmm, let's take a look? Turns out it was a stretch of several-mile Mill Creek...

  • 24. Hidden Valley

    This is a great trek more likely than not to provide a little welcome solitude not found in the busy national parks or easier/more popular of Moab’s trails. From the parking area, we puffed up a...

    more
  • 25. Mill Canyon Road

    This trail/road is off Hwy 191, just north of town 15 miles and after Arches park entrance. Located at mile marker 141. It seemed like an adventuresome place for me to go and see the sites. Supposedly...
