Moab, UT - With its rugged terrain and incredible arches and rock formations, Moab, Utah could easily be considered one of the most beautiful and fascinating places on earth. Its thousands of miles of trails and close proximity to hotels and dining makes it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United States for off-road activities, including ATV and SxS trail riding.

The terrain at Moab is mostly sand stone and clay, which is sometimes referred to as “slickrock.” The term comes from a time when wagons with wooden wheels would try to cross the smooth rocks, causing their wheels to slide around. However, rubber ATV tires do not have that problem and are able to grip most of the rocky terrain with ease. There are rocky sections of trail, gravel roads, hill climbs, and wash areas; just about any type of environment imaginable. There are even sand sections that have formed from weathering of the sandstone that are a beautiful coral pink in color.

Moab is also the location of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.

The Moab Trail system offers trails for every skill level from easy to difficult, and regardless of the skill level, each one offers up its own breath taking scenery

Canyonlands is divided into four sections by the rivers, including Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the rivers. The murky waters of the Colorado River wind through the area and combine with the clear waters of the Green River, creating dramatic scenery throughout the area. There are several trails that run from the town of Moab right to both parks.
