Four Ways to Enjoy Moab Even If You’re Not the Adventurous Type

If you’re looking for relaxing ways to see all that Moab has to offer, this is the guide for you! There are plenty of things to do in Moab that aren’t strenuous activities, and you will still be able to experience the beauty. Here are some suggestions to get you started.

Drive Through Arches National Park

For a great chance to view the red rock formations, a drive through Arches National Park is a tremendous option. While there are many hiking trails, there are viewpoints you can get to by car that saves time and energy. If you have about three hours to spend in the park, try driving to The Windows Section to see several of the largest arches in the area. After this continue on to the Delicate Arch Viewpoint, which is Arches most famous rock formation. If time allows, you can also visit Wolfe Ranch, a historic cabin built by John Wesley Wolfe in the early 20th century. Following the paved path in this national park will bring you magnificent views you will never forget.

This short afternoon activity will introduce you to the water and the raft with just a few splashes.

Dead Horse Point

Another area with countless opportunities to explore is Dead Horse Point State Park. Located 2,000 feet above the Colorado River, this park lies on the edge of Canyonlands National Park. Here, you can again take a scenic drive and experience some of the most breathtaking views. There are many pull offs with sights of the Green and Colorado rivers, the red rock canyons and more geological features. While driving through the park, be sure to look out for Seven Mile Canyon, Monitor and Merrimac buttes, views of San Rafael Reef and Henry Mountains.
