Stunning views. We got there about 3 in the afternoon and drove the scenic road and stopped at all the pullovers. Absolutely gorgeous! Light crowds. This was our first day in Moab and I couldn;t wait to get up and see more the next day.

Went to Needles and Islands in the Sky. Very different regions. Great hikes. Hot and sunny- good hiking shoes, hat, sunscreen and water! Much less crowded than Arches. Both areas worth the trip if you like hiking and being outdoors. Hiked about 20 miles in...More

The Island in the Sky drive is full of beautiful views and overlooks. Take a short hike to Mesa Arch. Bring water and sunscreen.

Make this a day trip from Moab and then visit Dead Horse State Park after. There are different sections of this park to enter at, the easiest is Island in the Sky. A little over an hour from Moab, not a bad drive. Once again...More

4 distinct districts to the park, each with its own character. Island in the Sky, Needles, and The Maze. Didn't visit the fourth. See them from the top, then hire a 4x4 company to drive you inside to the most amazing parts!

This is a spectacular section of the park, although a drive to get there. I think it far exceeds the beauty of the Grand Canyon and that is saying a lot . We did the Chesler Park loop, about 6 mile, and very cool. There...More

More amazing rock formations. Highly recommend going to Mesa Arch at sunrise to see the glow underneath the arch. Grand View Point overlook is another must see.

Another completely different park in Utah. Enjoyed this park very much with the variety of rock formations.

Most RVs are OK as long as they stay on the paved roads. The park is divided into 4 sections. The only ones I would try to access are Island in the Sky and Needles. I pulled a small trailer into Needles, no problem. While... More

Beautiful areas to pull off. Canyonlands was our favorite area. Make sure to go see Buck's canyon, we hit it at sunrise. Absolutely incredible with maybe a 50 foot walk to the railing. At sunrise we had the whole place to... More
