#10 best hiking town is …

Moab, Utah

Moab is a fantastic jumping off point for outdoor adventure, a special mecca for crack climbing.

But the “strip” can be loud, ugly, hot and aggravating. Once you get away from the highway, the town’s much prettier. They have a good library and great bike trails.

Moab … in eastern Utah … is 233 miles (374 km) southeast of Salt Lake City and 354 miles (569 km) west of Denver, Colorado …

The population was 4,779 at the 2000 census. … Moab hosts a large number of tourists every year, mostly visitors of the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, which are located close by. The town is also a popular base for mountain bikers who come to ride the extensive network of trails including the famed Slickrock Trail

  1. Excellent choice! Definitely deserves to be in the Top 10, if not for the town, but for the two amazing parks right outside its door.

  2. What is the best way to get to Chesler Park from Salt Lake City?

    Please advise lodging information in June (of 2011).


      1. And you can work out for the best rates as well. The best rate that he will give is $55 or even $50.

    1. From Salt Lake city to moab there is Big horn Shuttle. It runs everyday. And for the best and cheapest hotel in moab you can try Virginian Motel (http://www.moab-utah.com/virginian/) or River Canon Lodge or Super 8 this are the cheapest motels in town with best amenities. I have worked in moab for 3 months in Ramada Inn it was fun out there and its the best place to be in. Feel free to ask any further information about the town or tourist attractions or places to dine. My email address is jayrajbhatia88@gmail.com
