Moab Mountain Bike Vacation

Moab Guided Mountain Bike Trip

 

It probably wasn’t far into your time as a mountain biker that tales of Moab made their way to your ears. Moab is steeped in history and legacy, and holds all things adventure-related for not only mountain bikers, but for anyone looking to get a little lost in the desert. As mountain biking grew in popularity, the trail options grew in Moab, making it as enticing as ever to plan a trip.

Located just an hour beyond the Colorado border, Moab serves as the go-to getaway for some of the country’s best mountain biking. Those newer to mountain biking can enjoy the 14-mile Dead Horse Point trail, while more experienced riders can test their skills on HyMasa or Porcupine Rim.

After a long day of riding, Moab offers great restaurants and bars, such as Woody’s Tavern and the Moab Brewery, while keeping a small town feel. Learn more about everything that Moab has to offer by visiting each of the following sections.
