Moab, UT is the mountain biking mecca of global proportions! But Moab’s best-kept secret is its phenomenal hiking opportunities.
Of all of the five national parks within the state of Utah, Canyonlands offers the grandest array of geologic and geographic phenomena that define Utah. Within the park’s vast expanse are two of the West’s great rivers — the Colorado and Green — gaping canyons, open desert and towering mesas covered with stands of pinion and juniper, natural arches, spires and towers, and miles and miles of colorful slick rock.
