Top 5 Things To Do In Moab, Utah.
Moab is like the Iceland of Utah. With so many unique terrain, it’s the ideal pit stop for the outdoor lover and landscape photographer.
If you have a few days to make a quick visit, check out these 5 things while you’re there.
#1 — Hidden Valley Hike
This hike is fairly long, but not too long. It’s around 4 miles long and has some amazing hot spots to take some stunning photographs.
Recommendations: Make sure to wear proper shoes and attire. Also, this hike is long enough that you will want a small backpack to bring some water and protein snacks.
#2 — Moab Cruising
If you have issues making decisions (like me), then the best thing to do is do some cruising through all of Moab. All around Moab, you’ll find great “view stop” spots where you can pull over and take a quick look around.
Recommendations: Rent a UTV, or side-by-side. You can rent 2 or 4 seaters that are too much fun for roaming around Moab in. If you happen to have an old VW bus, that works too!
#3 — Mountain Biking
If you’re the active type, mountain biking is a great way to see the sites from a unique view point. There’s quite a few places to rent bikes, usually by the day. Whether you’re with your friends or kids, just about every bike shop has bike model types for everyone.
Recommendations: Make sure to spend the extra $10ish to get the rental insurance. It’s worth it. Also, make sure you wear proper safety equipment for bike riding.
#4 — Balanced Rock
The best part about this spot is that you can literally park your car and walk about 50 feet to get there. Visiting the Balanced Rock is definitely not one to skip. With it being formed by eroding rock, at some point this natural phenomena will be gone.
Recommendations: Although menacing looking, don’t be afraid to climb around the 55 ft tall rock. No extra water or snacks needed.
#5 — Delicate Arch
You might say that this is the face of Moab…or Utah for that matter. It’s by far the most popular spot in Moab.
There are two options to view this beauty. There’s a short hike to a lookout point where you can see the arch from a distance. The other option is to take the 3 mile hike (round trip) to get right up to the towering, free-standing arch (60 ft tall).
Recommendations: If you’re up for waking up at 5–6am, you’ll be able to beat the crowds and get there in time for the sunrise.
I could go on for days, but these 5 things are my personal favorite things to do in Moab, Utah.
