2.4 miles / 482 ft Elevation Gain

I do this hike every time I got to Moab! It’s outside of Arches National Park but you still get an incredible arch with a fraction of the crowds. Lots of slickrock with one section you have to climb a ladder, but otherwise it’s fairly approachable and well worth it for the views. 

4.0 Miles / 1,170 ft Elevation Gain

A hidden valley just a few miles past downtown Moab. The first chunk is a fair amount of uphill and then it opens up to a gorgeous valley. Keep an eye out for petroglyphs!

1.8 Miles / 65 ft. Elevation Gain

Perfect hike for a hot day! Winding along and through the river (yes, your feet will get wet) with a swimming hole and waterfall at the end.

3.7 miles / 954  ft Elevation Gain

Gorgeous hike to a very cool arch! Loved this hike but make sure you download the trailmap ahead of time, we got a little off the trail a few times. 

3.0 Miles / 679 ft. Elevation Gain

Red Rocks is beautiful for it’s ampitheater, but you can also hike around the park to take in the views! This is a great 3 mile loop that’s steep enough at parts to feel like a work out, but never too overwhelming.
