Moab is situated in a beautiful and rugged desert setting near Arches National Park, Dead Horse Point State Park and Canyonlands National Park, with the La Sal Mountains rising to 12,721 feet to the east. It is a recreational paradise with miles and miles of trails to take you up through the spires, canyons and cliffs of the desert as well as river rafting down the nearby Colorado River.

There are many soft-surfaced trails near the city of Moab to take if you want to go for a hike, but if you want to stroll along the paved Mill Creek Trail through town, you can choose this as well. There is also the 10 mile long paved Moab Canyon Pathway that parallels State Highway 191 north of the city.

Always bring plenty of water if you travel along the trails in this area.

Moab Canyon Pathway

Moab Canyon Pathway is a 10 mile long paved path that heads north of Moab along State Highway 191. This is a wide well maintained paved trail and is used by families as well as mountain bikers heading off to other trails nearby including the Moab Brands Trail System. The rugged red cliffs and spires of the desert walls rise above you as you travel the trail.

From here at the parking area, you cross over to the other side to access the underpass that takes a sharp turn to the east under the highway. Just past this underpass the trail goes by Lions Park then crosses the Colorado River with a 600 foot long bridge. This is a nice place to see the majestic walls of the Colorado River canyon.

Past the bridge the pathway heads back towards the highway. There are a couple of access paths to get to the nearby campground and boat launch area. the path skirts along between the bottom of the cliffs and the highway past the entrance road to Arches National Park and Visitor Center. Past this entrance, the Moab Canyon Pathway heads away from the highway for a stretch. It heads back to tuck under the highway and then is located on the west side for the rest of the way. It passes the Gemini Bridges Trailhead and then extends for another 1.2 miles and stops at the intersection of Highway 191 and Highway 313 at at a trailhead with parking and a restroom.

There is a 762 foot elevation climb from the bridge over the river for about 5 miles. At the river the elevation of the trail is 3983 feet and the highest point is at 4656 feet.
