Things to Do, What's New — By julietrevelyan on October 26, 2011 at 4:27 pm

Moab, Utah, is famous for its outdoor activities and its stunning location. That said, there are some great views to be found in and around town. Here’s a round up of the best views in Moab. Enjoy!

Hidden Valley Trail

This fun hike offers a view of the entire Moab Valley. Not as well-known as some hikes, you’re likely to enjoy a little more solitude on this one.

Behind the Rocks

A sort of locals’ secret just south of Moab, this playground has a plethora of hikes, bike trails, and natural arches. Absolutely gorgeous.

Corona Arch

A popular, really big arch just northwest of town. Fairly easy hike.

Sunset Grill

This restaurant high on a hill commands sweeping vistas and fancy food. When so-called “Uranium King” Charlie Steen built his monument to himself, he demanded the best view in town to show how far he’d come. Today, you can savor the view along with your food in Charlie’s one-time home.

Grandview Point in Canyonlands National Park

Not precisely in Moab, but near enough to count. Missing this view if you’re in the area would be a serious bummer. This video of Grand View Point gives you an in-depth idea of the scenery.

Dead Horse Point State Park Overlook

Another famous view near Moab, this one is called one of the most photographed spots in the world. Visit it and discover why.
