Moab, a small town in eastern Utah, 30 miles south of highway 70, has a population of about 5500. However, don’t let that number fool you. Moab is a bustling, busy hub for a long list of outdoor activities available in and around the town.
Moab is only 5 miles north of Arches National Park, and Canyonlands is 35 miles to the southwest. The Colorado River is just a couple of miles out of town.
