Welcome to the website designed specifically to make sure your trip to Moab is the very best it can be. Here you’ll find lots of pointers and tips from Moab Locals themselves on what to do, where to do it, when to do it, and how to do it.
So get out there and Do it like a Local!
Don't Bust the Crust
Moab’s microbiotic soil is covered with living things like fungi, lichens, and mosses that help the desert retain moisture other species need to survive. It can take hundreds of years to recover from a single footprint, which is why it’s so important to stay on established trails.
While it’s tempting to get up-close and personal with Moab’s dinosaur tracks, rock art, and other historical wonders, doing so can cause irreversible damage to sites that can never be replicated.
Respect the Rocks
Wear the Right Shoes
Proper hiking footwear is essential when it comes to Moab’s rocky desert terrain. Make sure whatever shoes you take on your Moab adventure offer arch support, ankle protection, and enough grip to keep you sure-footed.
Bring Plenty of Water
It’s easy to rack up the miles in Moab, and many riding areas have little to no shade available. The dry desert heat can cause dehydration faster than you think-make sure you’re prepared with at least one gallon of water per person, per day.
Pack it In, Pack it Out
When choosing a camp spot, pick one that’s been used before, and leave it in better shape than you found it. Make sure to fully extinguish all fires until ashes are cool to the touch, and do your best to avoid disturbing the natural landscape.
Sharing is Caring
On your ride, there’s a chance you’ll encounter full-size vehicles, motorcycles, mountain bikers, dog walkers, horseback riders, and more. Make sure to keep your speed manageable and minimize dust so other trail users can enjoy Moab’s epic views.
