Fun for All - Moab

Fun for All - Moab

Cruisin’ Along

Moab is a great town to get around on a bike. Bike racks are placed on most of the sidewalks in front of businesses. Be safe and always lock your bike.

The Mill Creek Parkway is a nice paved path that runs through town and is accessible at many different points throughout Moab.

This is a popular path for dog walkers and young children learning to ride their bikes. So if you’re riding your bike on the path, only slow riding please and yield to all pedestrians.

Benches situated on the banks of the creek provide a shady, quiet respite from the desert sun. The path is shady all the time.
The Mill Creek Parkway connects to the Moab Canyon Pathway from the 100 West portion of the parkway, and safely crosses Utah Hwy 191 at 600 North at a pedestrian stop light. 

Class 1 e-bikes are now allowed on the paved pedestrian paths in town as well as the Moab Canyon and Colorado Riverway paths. E-bikes, please yield to all other users.

Moab Canyon Pathway loosely follows US Hwy 191 North past Arches National Park and climbs toward Utah Hwy 313 (to Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park).

The path begins in town at 500 West and heads north crossing under Utah Scenic Byway 128 and then over the river on an incredibly scenic bridge.

Stop in for a snack or lunch at Moab Giants at the intersection of US Hwy 191 and Utah Hwy 313 before heading back.

There is a pedestrian/bike entrance off of the pathway into Arches National Park. A connector trail takes you directly to the visitor center patio where you can pay your entrance fee at the classic metal box with envelopes (check or cash). No reservation needed when riding a bike into Arches.

Colorado Riverway Non-Motorized Path is a paved path that follows the Colorado River on Utah Scenic Byway 128, almost to the parking area of Porcupine Rim Trail. From the bridge, the trail follows the river and is 1.4 miles to Goose Island Campground. The path goes through the campground and continues another .6 miles.

Lions Park, at the junction of US Hwy 191 and Utah Scenic Byway 128, is at the intersection of the paved bike paths. It has ample vehicle parking, restrooms on both sides of the highway, and a picnic pavilion.

Note: These paths are great, non-technical ways to relax and take in the sights while riding, and are perfect for families and riders of all abilities. Stick to a bike path whenever you can. It is safer to ride on paths with no vehicles.

Electric Bikes

In the Moab area on BLM and Forest Service lands, e-bikes are not allowed on any trails designated for non-motorized use (except the paved bike paths). However, they are allowed on any trail designated for motorized use such as Slickrock, Sovereign, Hurrah Pass, and any 4x4 trail.

Dead Horse Point Utah State Park allows them on their bike trails.

Check at the Moab Information Center before planning your e-bike ride.
