EDITOR’S NOTE: Moab is the gateway to the land of arches that marks Utah’s southeastern border. The small, laid-back city is situated between Arches National Park to the north and Canyonlands National Park to the south, and is surrounded by state parks, national forest land, and other wilderness areas that feature the region’s picturesque red sandstone, naturally sculpted into fantastic formations, backdropped by snow-covered peaks.
All kinds of outdoor adventurers visit Moab, but it’s perhaps best known for its biking opportunities — of both the mountain and motorized variety. There are more than 10 different areas to ride, each with miles of trails that run the difficulty gamut from beginner to expert. (Note: No biking is allowed in the national parks.)
Matador Ambassadors Yancy and Wyatt Caldwell recently scoped out the Moab biking scene and produced the video above. Their conclusion? There is WAY more terrain than can be explored on just one trip. As with any visit to Utah, you’re just scratching the surface.
