Some of the very best hiking trails are in the Moab Utah area – inside Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.
Whether you are an avid hiker or prefer a slower pace there is a perfect hiking trail for you to enjoy the petroglyphs, arches and abundant rock formations. Just remember to wear good hiking shoes, bring plenty of water, and your camera.
For an all day outing we recommend a Horseshoe Canyon Expedition in Canyonlands. Spend your day in the remote land West of the Green River where you’ll discover ancient rock art panels created by Native Americans. Counting drive time to and from the trail, you’ll be out for about 11 hours.
If you’d prefer a shorter hike, but equally enthralling, the Fiery Furnace 1/2 Day Tour through Arches National Park is for you. Start at the park’s visitor center where you’ll view a short film about the Fiery Furnace, then ride to the trailhead past rock formations like Park Avenue, Courthouse Towers and Balanced Rock. Once your hike begins it will be the scenery which takes your breath away. With your guide pointing out the areas natural wonders including Surprise Arch and Walk Through Arch.
So lace up those hiking boots, grab a couple liters of water and take a hike…or two.
