Moab Attractions

Things To Do in Moab

In Moab, hikers set beneath a sandstone arch to watch the sunrise illuminate the sandstone desert. Mountain bikers ride out of town on pathways leading to some of the world’s greatest trail networks, river runners raft the world-renowned stretch of the Colorado River near Moab, and artists lay eyes upon some of Mother Nature’s greatest gifts. No matter what brings you to Moab, adventure awaits. 

Find Your Adventure


Hiking

Surrounded by two national parks, a state park, and seemingly endless stretches of public land, Moab has no shortage of hiking trails. Some wind through patches of light sand and sagebrush, some are a slickrock scramble, and others follow a river or creek beneath towering canyon walls. Depending on which trail calls to you, you may end up at the base of a famous landmark like Delicate Arch, or you may find solitude in some of the biggest stretches of undeveloped land anywhere in the U.S.

Mountain Biking

In 1969 Richard Wilson designed a route that would lead motorcyclists along a 10 mile loop through valleys of slickrock and up short, punchy climbs. It didn’t take long for mountain bikers to venture out on the Slickrock Loop, which is now one of the most popular trails in the area. Since then, thanks to an ever growing network of trails that wind through some of the most unique mountain biking terrain anywhere in the world, Moab has become a bucket-list destination for mountain bikers.

River Rafting

If you plan to visit Moab during the warmer months, river rafting should be near the top of your to-do list. The winding Colorado River has everything from sections of calm, paddle board friendly water to Class V rapids where the Colorado meets the Green River in Canyonlands National Park. There are quick, one-day routes like The Moab Daily, or multi-day ventures like a 5-day excursion through Desolation Canyon. To start planning your trip, get in touch with one of Moab’s local river rafting guides.

Visit the Parks

Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park are all only about half an hour outside of downtown Moab. That means in a few days time you can explore the largest concentration of natural arches in the world, gaze upon the desolate Maze district, and visit one of the most photographed scenic vistas in the U.S. Even though the parks are all accessible in a day’s time, you could spend countless trips seeing all that the parks have to offer.

Camping

For many, Moab is a natural oasis. One where travelers can look upwards from their camp to clear dark skies where stars are not hidden behind the polluting light of nearby development. It’s a place where your family can gather around a campfire and share stories at a glamping resort. There are plenty of ways, and places, to camp in Moab. Set up a basecamp in either of the national parks for early access to the trails and overlooks, book a night at one of the many camping resorts, or find your own site in the surrounding BLM land.

Events & Art

After an evening spent in town it’s apparent how inspired, artistic, and passionate the locals of Moab are. Outdoor art exhibits are shown at nearly every street corner, and concerts, festivals and other events are almost always within reach. Yearly events like the Moab Folk Festival and Scots on the Rocks are a great way to experience Moab’s strong sense of community, a community that knows the importance of protecting their home so everyone can enjoy it for years to come. So, during your next vacation plan to save an evening for an art stroll or an event, and remember to Do It Like a Local.
