Arches National Park 4x4 Adventure from Moab

540 reviews
Avoid the crowds at Arches National Park with this 4x4 adventure, with multiple departure times, that takes you off road to explore the rocky terrain of the park from areas where only rugged vehicles can go. Not only can you see fossilized dinosaur tracks, Tower Arch, and Marching Men on your guided tour, but you’ll have access to ice water and lemonade to keep you cool even in the heat.

Definitely worth taking a day to go for a drive next to the Colorado river, and top it with a hike. I recommend the Grandstaff trail (easy) or the Fisher towers trail, which ends under the cathedral of phenomenal towers that were used as backdrop in many movies (Westworld, The Comancheros, etc) and are known among climbers for classical routes up the Titan peak. Even better, if you are lucky you can reserve one of the handful camping spots under the peaks.

Take 128 off of 191 for a shorter way to see some of Utah's best red rocks. And do drive further on 128 East along the Colorado river. Spectacular.....don't rush !

Moab is a busy town with lots of traffic and the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks get really busy. If you want a little respite from all the traffic and crowds then this short and beautiful drive is for you. Turn right on the 128 as you exit Moab to the north. The exit is just before the Colorado river bridge. The road follows the river with gorgeous views of the Sandstone Cliffs and Canyons. Turn right again to head to the small town of Castle Valley. On the way you will pass by the Castle Creek Winery - a great stop to take a break and taste local wine. Next to the winery is a resort with a stellar bar and restaurant overlooking the river. A great place to have a drink or eat. Past the town of Castle Valley the road winds up the mountain through forest and has spectacular views.

We arrived a little late in the morning on a busy day at Arches and found the park was closed with a sign to come back in 3 hours. We headed up river a little south of the park and went all the way to Fisher towers, and then back down Castle Valley all the way to the overlook. The drive was beautiful and at the top, we took time to see some cool dinasaur tracks and the overlook of the valley was super cool. We have been to Moab many times and I was glad we took a few hours to explore the back side of the mountain.

We were just driving around after visiting Dead Horse Pointe and took a side road. This was a very good decision, we saw the castles and then ended up in LeSal National Forest.
