Arches National Park
The entrance to Arches National Park is only 10 minutes away from the resort. Take a scenic drive through the park and stop at the easy-to-access viewpoints or opt for a longer hike to see some of the park’s iconic arches and rock formations up close.
Delicate Arch hike
If there is any hike you should do in Arches, the iconic Delicate Arch should be it. This trail follows for about 3 miles roundtrip as it leads up a few switchbacks, through an open area of slick rock, to one of Utah’s most famous arches. The trail is easy to moderate in difficulty and can be done by hikers of all ages.
Canyonlands National Park
Canyonlands National Park is a little further away from Moab. It is divided into three different districts with the most popular Island In The Sky District located about an hour’s drive from the resort. It is a more rugged and remote park with several hiking trails of varying lengths and scenic overlooks that are easily accessed off the main road.
Mesa Arch is one of the best-known highlights in the park. The rock formation is located in the Island In The Sky District just off Grand View Point Road. The arch is very easy to access from the trailhead at just a half-mile walk with very minimal elevation gain.
