Moab & Arches National Park

235mi / 378km

Today you depart Salt Lake City and head south to Moab. Just before arrival in Moab we suggest a stop at Dead Horse Point State Park, which offers one of the most spectacular views in Utah. 2,000 feet above the Colorado River, views of red rock pinnacles, buttes and spires appear endless. Known as Utah’s ‘Adventure Capital’, Moab has become a world-renowned destination because of its surreal red rock landscapes, unique downtown and outdoor recreation opportunities. Join a jet boat trip or daily float on the Colorado River or explore red rock canyons and formations by foot, bike, jeep or horse. The recreational opportunities are endless. Moab is also known as the gateway to Arches National Park. Delicate natural sandstone arches and impossibly balanced rocks are among the amazing geological features at Arches, home to the world’s largest concentration of naturally formed rock arches, including one of Utah’s most iconic images, Delicate Arch.
