Arches National Park

A geologist’s dream come true, the Arches National Park features a paved scenic drive that is ideal for viewing the amazing rock formations. Hiking trails of all skill levels are available as well as guided ranger hikes. This park is located just 5 miles north of Moab, on Highway 191.

Canyonlands National Parks

This amazing natural wonder is divided into four main areas: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze and the Colorado and Green Rivers. When planning your visit to this park, remember that most people try to visit just one of these areas on a single trip. Other notable parts of the Canyonlands Park are Orange Cliffs, Cataract Canyon and Lake Powell. There are two paved entrances into Canyonlands: Highway 313 leads to the Island in the Sky District and is 10 miles north of Moab; Highway 211 leads to the Needles District and is 40 miles south of Moab.

Dead Horse Point

Utah has its own version of the Grand Canyon and it’s known as Dead Horse Point. This park sits 2,000 feet above the Colorado River and gives stunning vistas of Southeastern Utah’s canyon country.

Goblin Valley State Park

Off-road enthusiasts love the Goblin State Park for its hundreds of miles of dirt roads. Hikers enjoy the unusual rock formations and the secluded coves. The Little Wild Horse/Bell Canyon loop is a popular hike through slot canyons and has a trailhead with a parking area and restroom.

Gooseneck State Park

Hovering high over the San Juan River, the Gooseneck State Park offers mystery, tranquility and solitude. Watch the river meander across the desert for 5 miles, while only progressing one linear mile.
