By Slick Rock Vacation

Arches and Canyonlands National Parks are amazing places that people travel from all over the world to see and experience.  Moab has many other hidden gems of natural beauty and outdoor recreation that you can explore this fall or winter on a Moab weekend vacation.

The Colorado River runs just north of Moab and carves beautiful canyons. It is an amazing experience to explore the Colorado River canyons for those that love rivers and canyons.  The La Sal Mountains just south of Moab are beautiful mountains that rise out of the desert landscape.  In just a few miles you can drive from the red rock desert landscape to the beautiful aspen landscape of the high elevation mountains.  Native American pictographs and petroglyphs are common around Moab.  If you enjoy exploring Native American historical sites and studying these areas, Moab is a treasure trove of sites to discover and explore. This fall, spend some time exploring around on a Moab weekend vacation. 

The Moab area is well-known for mountain biking, hiking, and side by side trails. The trails are endless, and you could spend an entire lifetime exploring the trails and canyons around Moab with a mountain bike or side by side.  This fall explore one or more of these spectacular trails on your Moab weekend vacation.

Visitors come from all over the world to see the world-famous red rock canyons and arches.  Certain times of year hotel rooms and lodging for groups can be difficult to find in Moab due to the popularity of the recreation in this area. Slick Rock Lodge is perfect for groups looking for private lodging in the Moab area. The 5-bedroom building is ideal for groups under 20 people.  The 10-bedroom building is perfect for groups of 20 to 50 people.

Moab Fall Recreation

By Slick Rock Vacation

Moab is an amazing outdoor recreation area year-round, but as the children go back to school in August and summer vacations end the crowds die down a bit, the weather starts to cool, and the Moab area becomes even more magical.  The warm afternoons and cool nights in September and October make it a spectacular time to visit Moab. All the world-class recreation is still available, and the mild temperatures are perfect for enjoying the outdoors. 

Many visitors enjoy jeeping and ATV riding in the fall. The winding dirt roads and jeep trails that go around Moab, Canyonlands, and the Manti-La Sal Mountains make Moab a dream place to explore with your jeep and side by side.  Mountain biking in the fall is also a great way to explore Moab and the world-famous red rock formations and scenery. 

The Colorado River through Moab and just south of Moab also provides some great fall recreation opportunities for those that love playing on the river. The Colorado River provides excellent white-water rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding and playing in the water. 

Canyonlands and Arches National Parks are always great to visit, hike, and take photographs. Families will love the arches, red rock formations and canyons.  In September and October, the weather is great, and the national parks are much less crowded in the fall.  The petroglyphs and Native American ruins around Canyonlands are amazing, unique places to explore and provide a great destination at the end of your ATV ride or hike.

Moab is an outdoor recreation town all year, but fall may be our favorite time of year to have an outdoor adventure in this area.  This fall spend a weekend in Moab and enjoy some of the world-class outdoor recreation that Moab has to offer.  We hope to see you soon at Slick Rock Lodge!

Moab Recreation Lodge

By Slick Rock Vacation

A monsoonal pattern the last week has given Moab some much needed rain and has cooled things off.  In late July and August afternoon rainstorms are not uncommon around Moab and it brings some nice relief and moisture to the desert environment.  Wildflowers will start to grow and bring great color and beauty to the red rock landscape in this area.  Moab is beautiful any time of year, but these afternoon rain storms can create little waterfalls and streams in the desert that are an amazing contrast to the red sandstone and geological formations. 

July and August can be a great time to visit the Moab area and enjoy the beautiful scenery and world-class outdoor recreation that the Moab area has to offer. Slick Rock Lodge is a great Moab recreation lodge. Some of our favorite activities in July and August include: jeeping, river rafting, hiking, mountain biking, and relaxing with family. 

Jeeping is a great activity in July and August in Moab. Jeeps can take you to some of the quieter areas around Moab and allow you to see some sights and formations that not many people get to see. The other nice thing about jeep riding is most jeeps are air conditioned, so you can ride in comfort even when afternoon temperatures are hot.  It is also easy to carry a lot of water and food in your jeep to drink lots of water and eat a big lunch while you are out exploring.

River rafting on the Colorado River is a great activity for this time of year. The Colorado is a great river for both beginner and advanced river rafters. There are sections that are very calm for beginners and other sections with big rapids for those that are more experienced. It is also very scenic and has great views of red rock formations and canyons. It is a great way to cool down during the heat of the summer.

Hiking is a great way to see the arches and rock formations all around Moab. Make sure you hike in the morning and evening when it is cool and carry water and a rain jacket when you hike.  Arches and Canyonlands National Parks offer great hiking as well as the La Sal Mountains just south of Moab. Mountain biking is also a great way to explore Moab. Endless trails wind around the foothills of Moab and mountain bikers will find tons of great trails to explore. 

Relaxing by the pool is another great way to spend warm summer days in Moab. Slick Rock Lodge has a beautiful private pool for families to enjoy while they vacation in Moab. We hope you and your family will come and enjoy the beautiful summers in Moab.

Moab Adventure Lodge

By Slick Rock Vacation

Arches and Canyonlands National Parks have become more and more popular the last 10 years. In the summer they have gotten busy. We love the winter and early spring because Arches and Canyonlands are much quieter.  This time of year is also a great opportunity to get different views and photographs of the parks. In the winter you can get beautiful views of the red rock landscape with a dusting of snow.  The white snow on the red rock formations and arches makes for some spectacular scenery and opportunities to get some amazing photographs. The early spring offers great views and scenery of the red rock landscapes with water and spring storms also give photographers the chance to capture iconic arches with storm clouds and lightning.

Slick Rock Lodge is the perfect location for groups to stay and explore Moab during the winter and spring. This Moab adventure lodge has all the amenities and privacy to relax in comfort.  The fully furnished kitchens provide a great place to prepare and eat meals and the large bedrooms with their own private bathrooms are perfect for getting a good night’s rest and a hot shower at the end of the day.  The private hot tub is perfect for relaxing and soaking sore muscles each evening after a long day hiking, mountain biking, and riding ATVs. 

This winter and spring as you start to investigate the great adventure found in the Moab area remember to reserve Slick Rock Lodge for your group. We have the perfect accommodations for any size group. The 5-bedroom lodge is perfect for groups under 20 people. The 10-bedroom lodge is exactly right for groups between 20 and 50 people.  Really large groups can rent out both buildings and have enough space for everyone in their group.  This Moab adventure lodge is the perfect place for your next group adventure in Moab!
