What to do in Moab

Head to Dead Horse Point State Park first thing in the morning and you’ll have one of Moab’s most mind-boggling vistas to yourself. A stomach-churning 2,000 feet below your toes, the Colorado River meanders between cliffs, reddish canyons stretch for miles, and the snow-crowned La Sal Mountains serrate the horizon. It was here that Thelma and Louise sped off a cliff to their glorious ends. And it’s vistas like this (plus two national parks, Arches and Canyonlands) that attract a flood of mountain bikers, canyoneers, rock climbers, rafters, and ATV enthusiasts to this Utah oasis. Mountain-biking routes like the Whole Enchilada cover 7,000 vertical feet. The Hidden Valley Trail leads hikers to a serene grassy valley tucked into a deep canyon. And in town, ice cream parlors and trinket shops give families some much-needed downtime.
