Moab Canyon Pathway...

Connecting Utah National Parks

Moab is a mecca for mountain biking, but a nice option for paved biking exists. The Moab Canyon Pathway provides a connection to two national parks and one state park. Starting from the Lions Park Trailhead, cross the Colorado Riverway Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge. The paved pathway runs north alongside US 191 to Arches National Park (2 miles), and ends at SR 313 (9 miles) which connects to Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park. These are uphill, so be aware. From the trailhead, a spur runs 1 mile south to Moab - with many hotels, restaurants and shops it's popular with National Park visitors and as a base for mountain bikers and off-roaders. Also from the trailhead and running east is a scenic spur (3/4 mile) between SR 128 and the Colorado River to the Goose Island Trail. (Detailed map and photos below.)
