Moab has a lot to offer in terms of hiking. One of the best aspects of living in Moab is the variety of scenery one can get. There is a big difference between hiking in Arches National Park and hiking in the La Sal Mountains, and it is all available here. However, newcomers and locals may be wondering: what are some of the best hiking trails that Moab has to offer? Here is a list of some of the best trails in Moab:
1. Fiery Furnace. A natural labyrinth if there ever was one. Full of amazing rock formations that have to be seen to be believed, this can be a difficult trail and should only be done with a guide or if you have obtained a permit to hike alone.
2. Delicate Arch. This is a very famous hike and arch, and for good reason. It can be difficult, as the hike is uphill the whole way, but the view at the top is well worth it.
3. Warner Lake. To offer a change of scenery, Warner Lake up in the La Sal mountains is simply gorgeous. Right next to a lake full of fish and surrounded by trees and wildflowers, Warner Lake is a great place to hike, camp, and fish.
4. Bill’s Canyon (AKA Negro Bill Canyon). Named after one of Utah’s first settlers, this canyon has it all; great views from up high, a lovely stream, and short and long trails alike.
5. Devil’s Garden. Offering both long and short trails, Devil’s Garden has seven arches as well as numerous rock formations.
All of these trails offer beautiful views and multiple trails. Be sure to bring plenty of water, first aid, and some kind of tactical flashlight to stay safe on the trails.
