Running along the southern border of Utah’s famed Arches National Park, the Moab Canyon Pathway offers plenty of “wow” moments. The route follows Old Highway 191, which was converted into a paved, off-road trail. The trail begins on the north end of Moab and after about 2 miles arrives at the Colorado Riverway Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge (a beautiful structure itself), just off Highway 128. From there, it leaves the river valley and climbs gradually as it heads northwest through the red sandstone cliffs of Moab Canyon. After traveling about 2 miles from the Colorado River crossing, you can leave the trail to enter Arches National Park (arriving at a visitor center and parking lot) or continue on the trail as it parallels Highway 191 to trail’s end at Highway 313. (If you’re not intimidated by on-road riding, you could continue biking on Highway 313 and head southwest for 24 miles to Dead Horse Point State Park or 35 miles to Canyonlands National Park, but note that the experience will be a challenging climb.) As you approach the north end of the pathway, you’ll also pass the Gemini Bridges Trailhead, which sits at the beginning of a popular 16-mile roundtrip mountain biking and ATV trail.

Fun run. Tons to see. Definitely easy on the eye.

Great location and views. Provided access to countless mountain biking trails. We enjoyed a 15 mile cardio ride on this path, starting from the picnic area south of the park entrance and a short excursion onto Deadman’s mountain biking trail (difficult) and have reached complete happy exhaustion.
