In recent years, Moab has become quite well known for a number of sports, including four-wheeling, rafting, rock-climbing, mountain-biking and even more extreme sports like BASE jumping. However, there are many dozens of hiking experiences within a short drive. That proximity combined with beautiful spring and fall temperatures make this a popular location with tourists.
Trying to pick the best hikes in Canyonlands National Park can be challenging. This park, located near Arches National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park, has a lot of great hikes to choose from for hikers of all capabilities. The great thing is that even though there are so many trails, you really can’t go wrong with whichever hikes you pick to spend your time on.
Both the Needles District (to the south) and the Island in the Sky District (to the north) offer good hiking opportunities.
