DescriptionThis paved trail is a gorgeous path that offers cyclists, walkers, and runners alike views of some of Utah's most spectacular scenery. It begins at the pedestrian bike bridge just north of town. The path goes east a only a couple miles paralleling the Colorado River (the section shown in this post), it also continues northwest connecting you with Arches National Park. The section that takes you to Arches can connect you with the National Park where you can continue on another 30-40 mile out and back ride. The path also continues past arches for another 6.5 miles, paralleling the highway, although this section is a slight uphill gradient. Here you can connect with Highway 313 that leads to Canyonlands National Park. This pathway offers road bikers an endless list of options, while also offering runners, walkers, and hikers great sections of path with breathtaking views along the river and amongst the red rocks. There are a number of different park lots along this path, the location tagged in this description is east along the canyon where the path parallels the river.

  • I ran a very short portion of this track while on vacation. The path NE of the carpark just north of Moab. The pavement (asphalt) is smooth and the scenery is fantastic. Wish I had more "free" time to run more of it, particularly the portion that leads out to Arches and Hwy 313. Bottom line: This is a good path for vacationers who need something easy to find, hard to get lost on, and accessible. ( by Flapjack on 2014-06-11 )
