Other rock formations include fins, balanced rocks, and pinnacles, all formed through millions of years of geological events.

If you look at this landform from above, you see an ancient table-like field, soaring 2000 feet above the snaking Colorado River. It is one of the most dramatic overlooks on the planet. The name, however, comes from a time in the 19th century when cowboys corralled horses here, and they would frequently die from the heat and exposure. Getting to he...

This park is HUGE. So huge that it has four separate districts: the Island in the Sky, the Needles, the Maze, and the Rivers District (the Green and Colorado). Each one of these is worth spending a whole weekend at. The park was carved into existence by the Green and Colorado Rivers. It is miles upon square miles of deep canyons, high mesas, toweri...

William Granstaff was a black rancher who worked his cattle in this canyon, a pretty length of red sandstone cliffs that shield a small stream from the dry desert outside. It's about a four mile hike, round trip, heading away from the Colorado river, culminating in a beautiful Morning Glory arch formation, the sixth longest natural rock span in the...

This 17 mile drive is famous for the ancient Native American rock art, dinosaur tracks, views of the Colorado River, and rock-climbing. The best time to begin the drive is about an hour before sunset, so you can see the sunlight blaze on the high cliff walls. The drive passes below Dead Horse Point, southwest of Moab. Not everyone drives, though, t...

This natural sandstone arch, 91 feet across and 46 feet high, is easily viewable from the US route 191. You could snap it as you drive by, but a very short hike, about a quarter of a mile, would bring your right up to the arch for more dramatic entries into your selfie album. Be careful though, especially if you have kids, as on the other side of t...

There is a lot going in this unusual attraction. The hole is basically a 5000 square foot home-cave inside a huge sandstone rock. Once upon a time, it was a fortunate place for the unwealthy Christensen family to sleep in. Over 20 years Albert and Gladys Christensen built it into a place worthy of a millionaire, with 14 rooms, a 65' chimney and dee...
Gemini; Twin bridges. Get it? At the end of this mountain bike/motorcycle/ATV trail is a curious sandstone formation. It is a deep hole in the canyon wall, and the two arches span over it. Stay away from the edge, and make sure your kids don't wander too close. Getting there isn't hard, but it is quite a long ride. Also, it ends about 500 feet high...

Riding this trail on a bike is likely one of the coolest things you will every do in your lifetime. The Navajo sandstone you're riding on was laid down during the Jurassic Period, and it undulates and rolls and flows beneath your tires. Though the trail is designated for experienced bikers with high athleticism, you could just get off and walk...

Once filmmakers discovered the beauty of the lands surrounding Moab, many iconic films were made here. A lot of the filming was done right here at Red Cliffs Lodge. This heritage museum pays homage to the days of John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara, Rock Hudson, Henry Fonda, and James Stewart. It houses memorabilia from that movie era and also from co...

17 miles from Moab, right next to the Red Cliffs Lodge, this winery scored big in terms of location. It's nestled between high red sandstone cliffs and rushing white waters. Overhead are clear blue skies, contrasted beautifully by the lush green plantation of the winery. The scenic extravagance is backed up by the generous size of its tasting room ...
