A dog in front of the Corona Arch in Moab, Utah

If you’re anything like us, you probably think that a day spent exploring with your pup is as good as things get. Moab is full of stunning red rock views, great hikes, and charming local shops for you and your pets to visit. You could start off with a three-mile hike out to the picturesque Corona Arch, the Colorado River like never before from Dead Horse Point State Park, or spend a day in town at the off-leash Bark Park. Then consider stopping by Moab’s famed Quesadilla Mobilla food truck for a bite to eat, a chance to pick up a few local tips, and maybe a dog treat or two.

Other Things to Know


While you’re in town, make sure to stop by the Moab Barkery to spoil your pup with fresh-baked gourmet treats. Afterwards you’ll be ready to head out on one of Moab’s many pet-friendly hiking trails and places to see. If you’ll be visiting one of the national parks there are a few rules to keep in mind. Pets are only allowed in designated campgrounds, on paved roads and scenic drives, and must be leashed at all times within the national parks (click here for complete Arches and Canyonlands National Park pet policies). Otherwise, pets are welcome on most public land and areas surrounding the national parks.

So round up your pup’s gear (they’ll need plenty of water), pack your daypack, and learn more about visiting Moab with your pets to finish planning.
