Surrounded by two famous national forests, Moab is home to more than a thousand miles of trails and canyons, multiple rivers,  and countless unforgettable views. For both seasoned visitors and new visitors alike, it’s hard to know where to start! When considering a vacation in Moab, there are a few experiences that you don’t want to miss:

Biking in Moab

There are many noteworthy biking experiences in Moab with two of the most popular being the Slickrock Trails and The Whole Enchilada. Depending on the time of year, these trails may be a bit crowded, but they’re well worth it. A trip down the Whole Enchilada will bring you down 7,000 feet from the top of La Sal Hill to the Colorado River in 27 miles. The Amasa Back/Captain Ahab, Sovereign, or Navajo Rocks routes are fantastic, though the Magnificent 7 tops them all in the eyes of many. The 26-plus-mile ride showcases nearly everything makes riding in Moab so special, including ledge drops, slickrock, and of course, endless views.

For an endurance challenge, try White Rim Path, which circumnavigates Island in the Sky, a broad plateau over the Green and Colorado Rivers. You can make the 100-mile trip in a day if you’re really motivated or break it up into a multi-day adventure.

Avid bicyclists should plan to hit the La Sal Hill Loophole, a paved 60-plus-mile trip that twists around the nearby La Sal Range. You can enjoy the ride any time, or join the Grand Fondo Moab in early May to bike with other enthusiasts.

Climbing in Moab

A great place to begin your Moab climbing journey is at Ice Cream Parlor, an area 8 miles outside of town with several moderate routes, leading up to one of the area’s most significant sandstone towers. Alternatively, making the hour drive south to the splits of Indian Creek is also highly recommended. For intermediate climbers, the Quality III Kor-Ingells course on Castle Valley’s Castleton Tower is a long, difficult route topped by a football-field-size area with a 300′ rappel down that’s most exciting you’ll experience in the area. The American Alpine Institute has named it one of the 50 classic climbs up in North America.

Hiking in Moab

Prefer walking? Moab has no shortage of hiking opportunities for both novice and experienced hikers. Arches has a moderate three-mile walk to Delicate Arch while Canyonlands’ touts the beautiful Lathrop Canyon Path, a 22-mile round-trip. However, the very best hiking can’t be found in a park. About 40 miles north of the city is Fisher Towers. The modest 4.4-mile round-trip provides gorgeous views of the Colorado River and Castle Valley. It’s not overly crowded like many of the national parks, and unlike the parks, it’s pet friendly, so you do not need to leave your furry friend behind.

For a more adventurous getaway, consider a canyoneering trip. There are many slots available to explore, and though you could venture out on your own, it’s advisable to go with a guide. Flooding, falling rocks, and getting lost are common dangers for even experienced hikers, so it’s much safer to go guided.

Rafting in Moab

While most of Moab’s outdoor adventures happen on the red rock, there are many adventures to be had on the water, too, as many of the best river trips in the country begin in the Moab area. A well-known favorite is a four-day Colorado River trip via Cataract Canyon. You’ll wind 96 miles through Canyonlands National Park through Class II– IV rapids, before returning to Moab.

For a more leisurely experience, rent a stand-up paddleboard to explore by yourself, or book a guided trip, and wind around the Colorado.

Local Dining for Thanksgiving

Not everyone wants to spend their Thanksgiving in the kitchen and would rather go out and explore the area. You can enjoy a Thanksgiving feast with a local restaurant found in the area. Moab features several different locally owned restaurants that will make your Thanksgiving meal a great one. Enjoy an upscale meal at local favorite Desert Bistro.

Fall Activities

You will not find any Thanksgiving themed events during your stay in Moab, but that doesn’t mean the fun stops there. The fall season is a great time to see Moab for the first or tenth time. Many consider Moab to be an outdoor playground, as the area features many different activities. The fall season also brings in cooler temperatures making it even easier to spend hours outdoors at any time. No trip to Moab should skip out on a visit to the local national parks including Arches National Park. This park is known for its historic stone arches that stand tall in the horizon. Our downtown Moab vacation rentals are just a few minutes away from the park where you can explore to find its over 2,000 different arches. Another great option is visiting Canyonlands National Park that encompasses over 337,000 acres of beautiful canyons and mesas. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy some outdoor fun including four wheeling, hiking, scenic drives, and much more. Mountain biking is a fun activity all year long, but the fall season makes it even more accessible. Beginners can go easy their first time by riding on the Bar-M Loop. There are plenty of hiking and biking trails surrounding the city for more experienced riders too.

Book Your Stay for Moab

As you can see there are plenty of ways for you and your family to get out and enjoy everything there is in Moab this Thanksgiving holiday. Reserve one of our vacation rentals today to have the best Thanksgiving experience in town.

Regardless of when you come to explore the outdoor playground of Moab, you will find an incredible adventure waiting for you. Utah has been heating up this summer season, but luckily autumn is just around the corner. With it comes cooler temperatures and a slower travel season, this is the perfect time to see Moab for the first time. All of the incredible outdoor activities are still available, and the weather lets you stay comfortable for longer outside. Take a look at some of our favorite fall activities that are available only in Moab:

Go Mountain Biking

One of the best ways to get out and explore the wonderful scenery in Moab is by renting a mountain bike. Moab features endless miles of biking trails that take you around much of the backcountry. While some locations may cater to the more experienced biking crowd Moab’s trail system has something for everyone. One of the best places to start out at is Bar-M Loop. This scenic trail is available to ride all year long and offers beginner level trails to dive into. There is also plenty of advanced trail access points that are directly connected to Bar-M Loop. The terrain has no limits when you get around Moab by mountain bike.

Go Horseback Riding

Another exciting way to see the great outdoors here up in Moab is by joining a horseback riding expedition. You can get off the beaten path and feel like a real-life cowboy with this thrilling experience. Horseback riding lets you traverse sandstone vistas and open range trails. Most horseback riding tours offered in the city are approximately 90 minutes in length and can be up to half day adventures. Each tour will make sure you learn the ropes and feel comfortable on your horse before you take off. The temperatures have been known to fluctuate in the fall out on the open trails so make sure you bring a few layers just in case. You will not look out at our beautiful desert scenery the same way ever again!

Visit the National Parks

Moab is home to two different national parks that are extremely easy to get to. Each of the parks is open all year long allowing you to enjoy them during the cooler fall months. The first park is Arches National Park that is named after its famous arches. There are plenty of trails to hike around including the trail that leads to Delicate Arch. The second park is Canyonlands, where stunning canyons sweep the landscape. You will also find plenty of unique trails that surround the area giving you plenty of room to yourself. Cooler weather and smaller crowds make the fall season the perfect time to check out these parks for the first time!

Bring Your Pup to Dead Horse Point State Park

Don’t forget to bring your friendly canine companion along to Moab for your fall getaway. There are plenty of areas where dogs are welcome to join in on the fun. One area that is incredible to see where your pup can join along is Dead Horse Point State Park. Do not let the ominous name scare you away from this beautiful canyon rim. Dead Horse Point is actually a high plateau that overlooks the area for sweeping views. The trails are open for leashed pups to walk along beside you for a family friendly journey. It’s becoming harder and harder to see the starry night sky in cities. Dead Horse Point State Park turns into the International Dark Sky Park at night; the name comes from the incredible starry sky that will be above you. There are regularly scheduled full moon hikes that let you explore the park under the full moon light. Make sure to keep an eye on the weather for any last-minute cancellations!

Explore the Local Rivers

Another great aspect of Moab is that it is home to the Colorado and Green Rivers. These winding rivers have helped shape the Moab region to what they are today. Rafting trips are a popular activity during the warm summer season as the cold water helps keep you cool and offers a thrilling ride. However, the fall season is a great time to check out the rafting trips too as the rivers have mellowed out and offer a calmer experience. These slower waters let you take in the beautify of the wildlife and red rocks a lot longer than what the summer trips can provide you.

When it’s time to make the most of a great getaway opportunity, some travelers can’t imagine a trip without plenty of sugar-white beaches, emerald waves, and shoreline adventures involved. Others are more drawn to the mountains when it’s time to rest and relax. Still, others find their best vacation self comes out when they’re headed somewhere dominated by beautiful desert landscapes and options to get out and explore red rocks and canyons in abundance. If the latter sounds like you, planning a trip to mesmerizing Moab in the summer or fall is bound to be the best choice you’ll make all year! 

Moab is a vacation destination of majestic proportions situated in eastern Utah that still finds a way to retain its welcoming charm. As a gateway to some of the nation’s most enchanting National and State Parks, Moab is endlessly alluring to those who have a heart for outdoor adventure and adrenaline-pumping fun. Still, its scenic surroundings, collection of savory restaurants, and boutique shops make it a destination just as well suited to travelers who are looking to enjoy a getaway at a more leisurely pace. 

No matter how you spend your time in Moab this summer or fall, making the experience begins with creating a comprehensive itinerary that takes every amazing destination into account! The following are a few stops, activities, and attractions that are sure to elevate your summer or fall escape from a great time to an unforgettable experience that will have you coming back to Moab for more in the future! 

Things to Do While You’re Here: From Pristine Parks to Thrilling Bike Trails

It’s hard to imagine a trip to beautiful Moab without some well-deserved time set aside to explore and experience iconic Arches National Park. While summer is a season that brings travelers this way in droves, those who book a fall getaway will likely find this appealing park to be a bit less crowded if that’s the goal. Either way, it’s a place that showcases some of nature’s very best work and isn’t to be missed no matter when you arrive in town. 

Fall in Moab

Arches National Park sits just north of Moab’s city center and is bordered by the Colorado River to the southeast. Since its establishment as a National Park in 1929, Arches has been captivating visitors and locals alike with its one-of-a-kind collection of over 2,000 natural sandstone arches it hosts! Experiencing these arches up close is an amazing experience whether you’re in the park to admire the view or can’t wait to capture it all on camera. While Balanced Rock and Delicate Arch are just a few of the many memorable formations to be found here, a day spent in Arches National Park on the trails is sure to inspire discoveries of all types.  

For all of the splendor that a stop at Arches National Park promises to provide, a trip to Moab in the summer or fall should also include time spent at Canyonlands National Park. A bit further from Moab, this intriguing destination offers a captivating collection of canyons to explore and observe, much as the name indicates. Featuring a dramatic desert landscape, Canyonlands is not a National Park that one could ever hope to see in a single day. It’s actually a collection of four distinct areas to explore and discover, each of which features its own collection of natural wonder and could take an extensive amount of time to enjoy thoroughly! This makes Canyonlands a place that’s worth returning to and a destination that offers up endless intrigue for those with a passion for pursuing time in nature. The park enjoys a maze of trails to be discovered and if you’re looking for added insight, consider booking a ranger-led tour through one of the main districts while you’re in the area.   

A third, and just as exciting stop to experience while you’re in Moab is Dead Horse Point State Park. This captivating destination is known for hosting some of the most scenic views the region has to offer up thanks to the many 2,000-foot vertical cliffs and canyons that make up the thrilling landscape. Hiking and biking trails abound at Dead Horse Point State Park which is a mere 32-miles from central Moab and wonderfully convenient to get to. 

While all of the national and state parks that adorn Moab’s landscape come with some inviting bike trails to take to, those that can’t wait to explore on two wheels at thrilling speeds will want to make Slickrock Bike Trail a top activity on their itinerary while they’re in town. This popular mountain biking destination is not for the faint of heart and is generally reserved for experienced mountain bikers looking to push their limits. At 10.5 miles in length, a trip along Slickrock takes cyclists past petrified sand dunes, over ancient sea beds, and across some truly unforgiving, yet undeniably beautiful terrain.  

Museums to Explore

While outdoor adventure is definitely a highlight during the summer or fall in Moab when the temperatures rise this time of year and you could use some time out of the sun to restore, heading to a museum is always a good option. Make your way to the Moab Museum at 118 E. Center Street Tuesday through Saturday any time between noon and 8:00 pm when you’re looking to pair an engaging experience with some regional education as well. This museum hosts a variety of displays and exhibits that highlight the area’s unique geology as well as its rich mining and pioneering past. In prehistoric times, dinosaurs roamed the landscape that now makes up Moab, so you won’t want to miss the exhibits that speak to the efforts in paleontology that are ongoing and work to discover more about the amazing creatures that once called Moab home. 

Once you’ve taken time to make your way through the Moab Museum, a stop at the Moab Information Center is in order. Situated at 25 E. Center Street, the Moab Information Center offers up a wealth of information related to local landmarks, activities, and events. The on-site staff is more than willing to answer questions, help you plan that ideal Moab adventure, or simply provide you with the trail maps you’ll need to make the most of the journey. Either way, it’s a place worth checking out when you want to get to know your vacation destination a little better. 

Tours to Take

For adrenaline-seeking travelers, Moab is a destination where you don’t have to look far to find heart-pounding adventures. A great way to experience the best of Moab’s dynamic landscape when you’re new to the area is to book an amazing adventure tour. For many visitors during fall and summer in Moab, a trip isn’t complete without a Hell’s Revenge 4×4 off-roading excursion that’s sure to be one of the most memorable moments of the trip. Over the course of 2.5 hours, a Hell’s Revenge off-road tour gives participants a chance to zoom over sandstone domes and Slickrock ledges that are truly breathtaking and best maneuvered by the professionals. Each UTV is generally able to seat up to four passengers at a time and some of the highlight sightseeing stops along the way include Abyss Canyon, the La Sal Mountains, and the mighty Colorado River.

Beautiful, clean home with perfect location. Everything was 5 minutes away. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. Communication was incredibly prompt. The blender was broken and after letting the hosts know, they had it replaced within the hour without even being asked, which was super appreciated. We highly recommend!

VRBO
We had a blast! Totally exceeded expectations! This property is really a big “compound” with two houses. Super clean, comfortable and spacious. It has a luxury resort feel, which made for an incredibly relaxing weekend even with a really large group. There are so many places to sit and relax with the group or on your own. Coolest amenities we liked were: **The pool and hot tub - pool has a waterfall plus it was heated and big enough for our large group. Gorgeous place for a night time swim. **Movie & Game Room - loved the movie-size projection screen. Great for watching football while playing pool, air hockey, etc **The private electric gate - has a door opener and gate that lets you drive several cars right up to the doors in between the two houses plus 2 garage parking spots. Very convenient for unloading and for securely parking a boat trailer or RV. This house was immaculate and well taken care of. Definitely coming back next time we’re in Havasu. Highly recommended!

I think it’s well rounded and precisely what anyone needs; whether that is for large groups, couples, romantic, homey, open, cozy, functional etc. it’s a bit off town so perfect for quiet and calm. We did hear neighbors a few times, it was never at night. We slept well, there are many beds to choose from certainly. Laundry room is accessible and convenient to bedrooms. Decorating is lovely and charming. Kitchen is great, and stocked for anything you’d like to cook basically. It is clean and very well kept… NO SHOES! Remember that rule! It’s why we rented… It should be a rule anywhere. The national parks are all within driving distance and often quite dirty. This is an excellent rental and we would stay here over and over. I have rarely felt as such for other locations or home. Thanks

This is a sweet property in a cool little subdivision. Perfect for groups 5-10 people who need a place to stay while enjoying Moab

Outstanding location - hiking, fishing, a short distance from the house and great small town shopping opportunities. Well equipped home, nothing lacking in terms of kitchen items, bathing needs, and hot tub. beautiful vistas from most rooms in the house. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely.

We had a terrific time at the property. Everything was like new! Great amenities and the booster chair and pack-n-play were perfect for my 2 year old.

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. Very clean and spacious. Well stocked with kitchen essentials and then some. Had a good variety of games to play, and for the little kids they had blocks and a little play area under the stairs. Communication was great, didn’t have any issues. Will definitely stay again!

Rented three units. We had a total of 14 people. The three units gave everyone privacy when needed and allowed for easy gatherings and meals together. Everyone in the party loves the places and would rent again! Location is great and the units themselves were awesome! Very clean, spacious and well stocked. We had no issues at all. Main activities for the week were mountain biking, hiking, 4-wheeling and sight seeing. I highly recommend these rentals!!

Really beautiful property here, smells new. Nice finishes and very comfortable furniture. Close to everything in town and a stones throw from the trails. Can’t wait to return!
