Top 5 Spots for a Gorgeous View in Moab

Making your way to Moab is an inspiring moment, no matter when you arrive. This incredible vacation destination is known for its amazing landscapes, options for fun, and dining and shopping options that are just as intriguing to travelers! Of course, half the fun of heading this way is making time to make the most of a great view or two. While there is no shortage of sensational vistas waiting to greet Moab guests, there are a few that stand out thanks to their impressive features, dimensions, and even colors. The following are five of the top spots for Moab sightseeing the next time your travel plans bring you this way.

Dead Horse Point

When you’re seeking an incredible and elevated perspective on Moab’s mesmerizing terrain, Dead Horse Point is the place to find it. This vantage point is accessible within the greater Dead Horse Point State Park and is found at the very end of a massive mesa by the very same name. From this spot, guests will enjoy a view from a place situated 2,000 feet above the ground! As you take in the sights of sprawling canyons, colorful cliffside walls, and a maze of mesas in between, it’s impossible not to be inspired. To make the moment that much more visually appealing, considering stopping by Dead Horse Point just before evening and making the most of that time when the sun goes down and colors fill the sky above.

Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway U-128

Moab is a vacation destination filled with rich history and inviting landscape which means it isn’t hard to find a good view or two here no matter what time of year you arrive. That said, there’s something particularly appealing about the combination of natural features available to be admired for those that take to the Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway on U-128. This ravishing route sits on the North side of the city and calls 44 miles of road its very own. Driving along this scenic byway, motorists can enjoy red rock walls and stop-off points for bouldering too. The landscape here has a way of pairing low canyons with open fields providing for some of the best panoramic views Moab has to offer.

Potash Road

If you’re the type of traveler that looks forward to pairing inspiring views with options to get up close to intriguing historical landmarks, a drive along Potash Road is sure to please. Sometimes referred to as Wall Street, Potash Road hosts more than 17 miles of route lined with towering sandstone walls! This view promise to be amazing in and of itself, but there’s even more to enjoy for those that continue to explore. Potash Road follows alongside the Colorado River and sweeps through corridors marked by both lush canyons and rocky points complete with ancient art still visible on the surface! If you’re on the hunt for designated pull off and lookout points, both the River Pullout and Jaycee Park, and Portal Overlook are great places to simply stop and take it all in.

La Sal Loop

Moab’s terrain is defined by stunning rock formations, but for the traveler looking for a view that offers up even more in the way of contrasting landscapes, a trip along the La Sal Loop is a must! This scenic route offers up some of the most gorgeous views around complete with a La Sal Mountain surrounding, alpine peaks, and a collection of far-off canyons to enjoy from a distance. While all of those red cliffs are fun to view up close, there’s something inspiring about taking in their dimensions from this vantage point that makes them even more impressive.

Arches National Park

When it comes to mesmerizing moments built on a foundation of gorgeous views, stopping at Arches National Park is a decision that leads to unforgettable vistas at nearly every turn. It’s hard to pick just one place in Arches National Park that’s more scenic than the other, which makes it such an oasis of visual potential for those that head this way. From Delicate Arch and Double Arch to the unique formations that are nestled into Devils Garden, guests will find no limit to the gorgeous views they can enjoy here.

This is a great rental. It was well stocked, clean and in great condition. The layout is great. We were a family of 4 so everyone got their own room and bathrooms had dual vanities. There is another bathroom with shower downstairs that we did not use. This could comfortably accommodate 3 couples; 4 if wouldn't mind using the bunk bed room. The kitchen was well stocked. We only cooked one evening but kitchen had everything we needed including common spices and some olive oil. Condo had shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, hand soap, dish soap and Keurig coffee pods. Condo is close to main part of town so we could have easily walked but Moab wasn't busy during our visit so we were able to easily find parking and drove most places. Cruiser bikes looked to be in good condition but we did not use them. The pool is closed for the winter but the hot tub worked and was well maintained. Garage at the condo was tall enough to accommodate our SUV with topper box and garage opener is included. Property management was by "Empty Spaces Vacation Rental Management." They were very professional and communication was excellent. That part of the experience exceeded a typical "host" for a VRBO. I wish they managed more properties in other locations (they manage some in Crested Butte, Havasu and Grand Mesa). I would absolutely stay at this condo again.

This property is located within waking distance to Main street downtown and is just a short drive to all things fun outdoors. It is very clean and has great amenities. Our kids loved the little play area! They felt they had their own special space away from us parents. This property really has all you need for a great vacation!

We were a group of two families with 4 adults and 3 children (11, 11 and 13). The house is well decorated, very clean and provided comfortable furniture for both relaxing and sleeping. There is also ample parking for up to 4 vehicles (2 car garage + 2 driveway spots). We had two cars, a RZR and trailer all of which we were able to fit at the property. The back patio overlooks a park with several trees which in my opinion is one of the best patio views in the development. Communication with the rental management agency was very clear and made that part of the experience effortless. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property.

We’ve stayed in hotels and condos in Moab and this was our best location yet. The condo is great with enough room for friends and family to all be together and enjoy each other’s company, but with rooms and bathrooms that allow for some downtime. We chose this unit because it was right next to the pool and we had kids with us. Best choice ever. We could be cooking on the grill while the kids (older kids) could swim. The kitchen was very well stocked and there were loads of towels and even games to play. We would come back to this property again for sure.

Awesome stay for our annual family trip! At first glance, it looked small (like the yard and pool etc) but once we got going we found it to be more than enough for our family and we had quite the clan. The pool is great for families with kids because there is a large step/pad on one side where my two year old could walk around and still be in the pool with everyone else. The yard has a fun playground for toddlers, and a nice lounge area where we played games. The house was super clean and comfortable, and great for the family to hang out. Parking galore. Plenty of things we needed like towels and blankets, etc. Great hosts! The location is good too, not far from stores or attractions like the London bridge. Would absolutely stay again if we come back to Havasu!
