Perfection on Four Wheels – Why Moab is America’s Top Off-Roading Paradise

Moab, Utah is well known for its world-class river rafting, mountain biking, and canyoneering, as well as the distinction of being home to two jewels in the National Parks crown: Arches and Canyonlands. But those in the know will tell you there’s no place like Moab in the world for off-road adventures via Jeep, Hummer, or UTV.

The Moab Adventure Center reports that off-roading is the best way to cover a lot of territory in this vast expanse of wilderness in the shortest amount of time. Four-wheel adventures include exploring on your own with a Jeep rental or guided Hummer safari tours that leave right from the center of town.

Moab Adventure Center’s Director of Marketing, Kam Wixom, shares his thoughts on why the region is America’s top paradise for off-roading.

He gives these seven reasons why Moab rocks the 4x4 world:

  • Plenty of Trails to Choose From- The area’s vast quantity of scenic trails will more than satisfy the most serious off-roader. Many head to iconic Hell's Revenge or nearby Chicken Corners for maximum adrenaline rush and sensational scenery.
  • A Trail for Every Experience Level– For beginners we recommend taking a Jeep rental to Fisher Towers or Onion Creek, just a two-hour trip with easy terrain. Klondike Bluffs or Monitor and Merrimac trails are more moderate options. Experienced off-roaders seek the challenges of Poison Spider Mesa or the Moab Rim Trail.
  • Unbeatable Scenery- With unimaginable natural beauty sliced by the cool waters of the Colorado River, Moab has become one of the most sought-after destinations in the American Southwest. Ranging from Alpine to desert, each eco-system is as unique as it is wild and pristine.
  • Options for Off-roading- Moab Jeep rentals or guided Hummer Safaris ensure that anyone can take advantage of a Moab adventure, even if they haven’t got their own vehicle to take off-roading.
  • Insiders Have Done the Legwork- Not familiar with the area? That’s okay. One can make a reservation with their Jeep rental or a guided Hummer tour or use the resources of the Moab Adventure Center to craft a custom tour. Be sure to check out this free Moab Insider’s Guide to get a head start!
  • There are plenty of places to stay- There’s no shortage of accommodations available, whether it be camping, glamping, B&B or hotel. Check out this helpful resource:
  • You have so much more to do– Plan some extra time to try your hand at other adventures like ziplining, canyoneering, raftingor hot air balloon rides. There’s literally something for all ages to enjoy, from scenic landscapes and national park tours to exciting hikes and outstanding restaurants.
