Moab Suggestions

Post by Watauga »

I've had a last minute trip to Moab come up at the end of the month. I'm still new to this part of the country and have not had the chance to hike that area yet so I am looking for some pointers.

I will be in town Fri-Sun and am looking for day hikes in Arches, Canyonlands or on BLM land. I can comfortably cover 15-20 miles a day and would like to maximize my time spent there.

I'll be doing my own research in the meantime but would love some suggestions from those that have already enjoyed the area themselves.

Thanks in advance.

@Watauga
arches:
[ Devil's Garden - Primitive Loop - Arches NP ]
[ Delicate Arch ]
you can cover quite a few trails in the park with your mileage parameters

canyonlands:
nice hike in needles district [ Confluence Overlook Trail ]
you can also cover quite a few of the trails in island in the sky in half a day

moab:
[ Negro Bill Canyon ]
[ Fisher Towers ]
east of moab, recommend both

I'm moving there in early March for a summer seasonal job, so I'm reading this with interest. I've been there quite a few times, but mainly for kayaking the Green and Colorado rivers. But I have hiked in the La Sals. That's a summer hike, in case you find yourself there at another time, when it's really hot. Feb. won't be the time for that, though.
