Utah Hotel Reservations
Visiting Moab, Southeastern & Central Utah
Fall in Eastern Utah brings glorious weather to Moab and surrounding red rock country. It’s the ideal time for a visit to Arches National Park, just 5 miles north of Moab, or a tour of Canyonlands National Park east of town. Beautiful sunny days greet hikers to Delicate Arch, one of Utah’s geographic icons, or open air four-wheel drive vehicles touring Canyonlands landscapes. A trip west to central Utah and the Richfield area brings travelers to fall fun in Fishlake National Forest. Hop on an ATV for a ride along the Paiute or Gooseberry Trails or relax for a day of fishing on the shores of Fish Lake.
Athletes, visit and enjoy a beautiful fall run along the Colorado River at the 2011 Moab Half Marathon. Scheduled October 16th, join runners and fans at Dewey Bridge for the start, with an energy build-up with drumming from the Taiko Drummers. Enjoy the festivities at the finish at Sorrel River Ranch Resort, complete with microbrews from Moab Brewery.
Bicycle enthusiasts check out the 2011 Moab Ho-Down Mountain Bike Festival and Film Festival the end October. From Thursday October 27th to Sunday October 30th, take part in mountain bike races during the day and evening movies. Bring your best costume for the Ridiculous Costume Party Saturday night at the Elks Lodge, featuring live music from the Shindaggers and the ridiculous costume contest.
November in Moab brings music to the red rocks with the Moab Folk Festival. A full schedule of live performances is on tap at Moab Arts and Recreation Center, Moab Ball Field, and Grand High School auditorium, November 4th through November 6th. Enjoy concerts by Michael Martin Murphey, Karla Bonoff and Boris McCutcheon and the Salt Licks through the festival – great music in an amazing setting.
Outdoor enthusiasts don’t miss the 2011 Rocky Mountain Jamboree. Held September 19th through the 23rd, during the peak of fall foliage. Join ATV riders at Richfield City Park to pick up credentials and head out on over 1,000 miles of trails in the area. With beginner, intermediate and advanced rides, this is an ideal family activity.
Richfield, just off Interstate 70 in Central Utah is a great place for a stop over along your travels. Historic Highway 89 runs through town, with destinations like Big Rock Candy Mountain and quaint towns like Marysvale and Panguitch within easy driving distance. Richfield is home to Utah State University Cooperative Extension in Sevier County, which supports area residents with educational resources and top-notch sports facilities.
