MOAB, UTAH (USA)
by Heather of Explore With Heather
The town of Moab is mentioned and instantly everyone around begins dreaming up mountain biking on slickrock, climbing spires, hiking to awesome petroglyphs, or jeeping along some of the toughest dirt roads in America. This is your ultimate tourist destination, especially April through October, and serves as the gateway into Canyonlands and Arches National Parks.
My main love for Moab comes from hiking, though it is definitely a town for any outdoor enthusiast. There is actually a trick to Moab that helps get the most bang for your buck as far as hiking goes. Tons of the awesome trails are all under three miles throughout both National Parks and all around the area. Your best bet that provides the biggest variety of hiking in a day is to string together two or three of these.
The perfect day of hiking in Moab involves waking up early to catch the sunrise at Mesa Arch then driving along the Colorado River to hike Fisher Towers. After that take some time to explore the town of Moab and refuel with a bite to eat on the patio at Peace Tree Café. End your day hiking the three miles to the iconic Delicate Arch to watch the sunset.
For bang for your buck on hiking availability, Moab is sure to be your next home. Whether you want to hike in deserts or drive 45 mins to the La Sal mountains to bag a peak you have all your favorite options in one place.
See you in Moab!
