You want to do all of your favorite outdoor activities in one location, with one trip? No problem. Moab, UT is known by many as the outdoor adventure “mecca”. What makes this small area one of the best in the world? The answer has to be its variety.
Moab is one of the few places on earth that has just about every type of terrain for outdoor recreation. Moab is well known for Arches National Park and Uranium Arch, the famous natural red rock arch seen on print and in movies everywhere. The red rock hills and cliffs also stretch through another National Park, Canyonlands National Park, creating a playground of trails, mountains and canyons for miles. Moab gives lend to some of the most intense mountain biking and off-road trails in the world. Every year, hundreds and thousands of mountain bikers, rock climbers and 4×4 off-road drivers come to Moab to experience the unique red rock glory of the Moab hills.
Moab is also home to the La Sal mountain range. In the La Sals, you can experience the wooded forest and scenic mountain beauty comparable to most other mountain ranges in the country. Hike the trails, bike the passes and camp in the forest.
Once you get a feel for the land options, you can head to the water. The mighty Colorado River runs straight through Moab. The Colorado River is one of the most popular rivers in the nation, and it is this same river that runs down through the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Here, a myriad of rafting outfitters and boatsman travel down the river to brave the famous rapids of Cataract Canyon, Westwater Canyon and more. Most rafting outfitters offer a variety of options, from single day trips to multi-day excursions along the river.
