A medium difficulty hike with some exposure. Less crowded than other hikes. You get very close to the magnificent, tall rock walls. Great views.

Probably 20 miles upriver from Moab, the Colorado River canyons open up to this beautiful, mini-monument valley. Drive up Onion Creek Road, check out Fisher Towers, dip your toes in (or float!) the mighty Colorado, or just park and take in the vast, magnificent enormity of the area. Stop at the winery and get a bottle of you choice!

This is one of the great drives in America. You are surrounded by mammoth red cliffs, with the Colorado River flowing below you. Wonderful stone monuments are on your way - including Fisher Towers, Castle Rock. Lots of western movies made here - including El Dorado and Rio Grande. Put this on your top 5 - you will not be...

Take the right turn out of Moab towards Arches but just before the bridge. Great 17 mile drive along the canyon bottom along the river. Beautiful. Near the turnoff to Valley Canyon is the Red Cliff resort that also has wine tasting from their vineyards.

it's a 60 mile loop from the colorado river to Moab and back but well worth it. narrow road, different flora and fauna, even snow in March.

The trail along the river through the canyon was a perfect biking trail from Moab. Lots of families with little ones too biking on it.

We woke up early and hiked to the top so we could catch the sunrise over the valley. It was cold, slippery but worth every bit of it. I now know what it is like to truly stand in awe.

Fantastic colors, formations, views and inspiration for paints, imagination, and word to paper. I was transposed back in time in pondering the magnitude of the beauty that surrounded us. I wish I were an able bodied person as I would have loved to have ventured further.

Especially in the fall color season - head up the La Sal mountain loop road from Moab and descend into Castle Valley. From high above the valley in the late afternoon you can see Arches, you can see the red rock and the trees. A stellar view.
