Trip Info

Moab is located 4 hours from Salt Lake City in the southeastern corner of Utah. On this accessible trip, you’ll explore the Marvels of Moab from the nearby Arches & Canyonlands National Parks, to paddling the Colorado River along the Old Spanish Trail crossing, and being fully immersed amongst the red rock canyons and dark skies. Moab may be small, but it is mighty and filled with adventure!

The experience was amazing. I tend to be independent wanting to go my own way but oh how I have shifted. The guides, Alex and Matt, know where to go and when so we could really enjoy the parks and hikes. They are full of insightful information about history, nature, and geography. The food, picnics, and organization was all so well done. I didn’t have to worry about anything. The views were amazing and Alex and Matt delighted in making sure we saw and experienced the best of everything the parks had to offer. The hikes were the perfect challenge to allow me to feel so satisfied about a day outside. It was such a wonderful experience with Good Trip Adventures. Thank you!

Weather

The best times of year to hike in the deserts of Utah are during early Spring from late February to May, and the fall months of September through to early November. The summer months can be oppressively hot and not ideal for hiking. Daytime temperatures in spring and fall are usually from 60° to 80°F and nights are cool. In the early fall you should be prepared for the odd afternoon thunderstorm.
