  • Moab

Overview

  • Karla Gadea

Moab is located in eastern Utah. Moab is a bikers dream and is home to the greatest mountain biking on the planet! It’s a bikers dreamland and has great biking trails for advanced riders and families with small children. The Moab area offers a huge variety of trails and is well known for its world famous Slickrock Bike Trail. There are over 100 trails to explore and enjoy.  

For a list of biking trails visit: http://utahmountainbiking.com/trails/idx-moab.htm

Mountain Bike Moab’s Porcupine Rim(Intermediate): This ride is one of the most popular in Moab and Utah. It’s a 15-mile one-way ride with 10 miles of downhill. Be sure to pack plenty of water and food with you as it can get extremely hot out there and the ride can take longer than expected. This ride provides you with stunning views of Castle Valley as you head along the rim.

Moab’s Slickrock Bike Trail: This trail is an intermediate singletrack trail with a distance of 9.6 miles. Slickrock is the most popular mountain bike trail in the world with over 100,000 visitors per year. The trail is only 12 miles long and can provide an amazing workout. There is a small fee to enter the trailhead to protect and rehabilitate the ecosystem.

Hike to Navajo Arch(Beginner): The hike to Navajo Arch is 2 to 4 hours there, hikers can see many arches and enjoy some nice shade provided by them. In order to get to Navajo Arch, you will have to hike through Devil’s Garden Trailhead. The hike is easy at the beginning but then has a slight incline. The arch is surrounded by many trees and this makes for the perfect picture.

Hike to Double O Arch(Intermediate): Hike to Double O Arch is a 4.2 mile round trip hike. The Double O arch is two arches stacked onto each other forming an “o”. Starting at the Devils Garden Trailhead, this 4.2 mile looped moderate hike features flat sandy paths to narrow sandstone slabs with narrow ledges. Best time to complete this hike is early in the morning.

Wolfe Ranch Rock Art: Hikers can see Indian drawings here and are totally worth going off trail. This can be found be coming off the main trail of Delicate Arch and give a history of the Wolfe family and their ranch.

Hike Devil’s Garden Primitive Loop(Intermediate): Total distance for this hike is 7 miles with an elevation gain of 1,204 feet. On this hike, you can see over 7 arches like Landscape Arch, which is one of the world’s biggest arches! Starting from Landscape Arch, the loop will take you to several other arches, as well as down into some of the fin-like canyons that are so prevalent throughout the park.

Hike and Stargaze Double Arch(Beginner): The hike to Double Arch is a short 0.5 miles roundtrip. The sight here at night is amazing and the two arches make it more spectacular! This arch is created by two arches that share the same stone as the foundation for their outer legs. This arch was formed by downward water erosion as opposed to the more common side-to-side erosion.

Cliff Jumping at Power Dam(Beginner): Power Dam is just below Arches National Park and is a great place to cool off after a long trip of hiking. Power dam is a swimming hole surrounded by big rock formations like those found in Arches. The hike to Power Dam is a short 1.5 miles. The hole is great for swimming and cliff jumping, in some areas. During the hike visitors will need to cross the water a couple of times so make sure to come prepared!

Hells Revenge 4×4 Trails: For those interested in off-roading there are many trails to be explored. All vehicles must stay on designated roads and trails.There are no open play areas, campgrounds included. For a list of trails visit: http://www.sandflats.org/655/Hells-Revenge-44-Trail

1 comment on “MOAB

  1. Moab is absolutely fantastic for mountain biking. They have trails for all levels. From beginner to advanced. I was worried my 10 year old won’t be able to handle the 10 mile ride, but Rim Tours guides were able to give her the confidence she needs and by explaining the different techniques on the bikes and what to expect on the trails, they got her through it and she had a blast.

    We stayed at the Homewood Suites Moab by Hilton. Our rooms were large, clean and comfortable, the hot breakfast and afternoon snacks were great. The location is central and you can walk to all restaurants and shops. The only thing I wish they’d had was a Jacuzzi, but the pool was heated and was sufficient for a quick swim to get the muscles relaxed after a whole day of hiking and biking.
