Few destinations like Moab exist. And even though Moab itself is incredible, it’s not just the city that makes it such an awesome area. Within 30 minutes of Moab, you can explore Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, and Dead Horse Point State Park. If you want to venture just a bit further, Goblin Valley State park is 1.5 hours away and Capital Reef National Park is a little over 2 hours away.
Our Top 5 includes stops that are in that 30 minute range of Moab. First up, Canyonlands National Park:
1. Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park
Like many of the incredible arches in and around Moab, Mesa Arch is an easy .7 mile hike. The arch itself is not massive, but the backdrop for the arch is what makes it so amazing.
