People come to Moab for the parks. With easy access to two incredible parks: both Canyonlands and Arches National Parks, the city provides visitors with weeks’ worth of endless visas, breathtaking views and hiking experiences galore. Not to mention, with a robust section of the Colorado River running through, Moab also provides plenty to do for those water enthusiasts.
The scenery is what draws visitors in, the activities are what keep them going! Fishing, golfing, jeep tours, ATV trails, mountain biking and rock climbing, you name it and you can find it in Moab.
  • CANYONLANDS

    The largest park in the state, Canyonlands attracts peoples because of the landscape, the hiking, biking and even camping out under the stars. The Island in the Sky district is the best way to see the park. With 32 miles of paved roads and scenic pull-offs, you can view just about everything. Some notable sites: The Mesa Arch, The Green River Overlook, and Alcove Spring.

  • ARCHES

    The other Moab accessed park, Arches, is so named because of the inordinate amount of sandstone arches. And not only arches, but there are fins, towers and other such formations which delight and amaze. Among the most popular arches: Balanced Rock and Landscape Arch.

  • DEAD HORSE POINT PARK

    Yet a third park within minutes from Moab, Dead Horse Point Park is one of the most photographed in the country. It overlooks the Colorado as well as portions of Canyonlands. The park and surrounding views are the result of millions of years of both erosion and sandstone formation.

THE WEATHER
  • Winter is the slow season. Moab is built around playing outside, and winter is too cold for most of the activities. January and December only get up to the low-40s on average.

  • Spring and fall are the peak seasons for tourism in Moab. Average high temps in May are in the low-80s.

  • Summer is still busy, but the heat makes it less crowded than spring and fall. July highs average nearly 100 degrees.

  • September and October are great months to be in Moab. The weather is warm and sunny, but not too hot.
