National and State Parks

Moab, Utah is arguably the adventure capital of the United States. With two breathtaking National Parks nearby and the famous red rock terrain, visiting Moab is like entering another world. It’s no wonder visitors come from all parts of the globe to visit this unparalleled landscape.

Arches National Park is well known, of course, for its architecturally impressive rock and sandstone arches. The arches and other rock formations, which include spires, fins and monoliths, are sculpted out of the red sandstone by wind and rain. Canyonlands National Park is much larger than Arches, and features canyons, mesas and buttes which have been sculpted by the Green and Colorado Rivers.

Adventure seekers visiting these parks can enjoy an abundance of scenic hiking trails.

Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park is a wilderness of countless canyons and fantastically formed buttes carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries. Rivers divide the park into four districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the rivers themselves. These areas share a primitive desert atmosphere, but each offers different opportunities for sightseeing and adventure.
