Finalizing Spur of the Moment Moab Itinerary: Last Minute Questions

Jump to last reply

Thanks for all the helpful advice. I think this is what we'll shoot for with the four days (including two weekend days) we have in the Moab area:

ARCHES hikes:
1. Delicate Arch
2. Devil's Garden Loop
3. Fiery Furnace

CANYONLANDS:
4. Island in the Sky drive
5. Chesler Park hike

MOAB area:

6. Corona Arch hike
7. Either canyoneering with Desert Highlights or scenic flight with Slickrockair

Realizing there's much more to do in the area than we can possibly do, is there anything obvious for a first trip we're leaving out?

Clearly time of day for some of these hikes maximizes the experience. Any recommendations on time of day for any of these hikes or activities, or how to order them to make most efficient use of our time?

Will we need to allow a day-and-a-half to complete the three Arches hikes?

How much time should we assume for the Islands in the Sky drive, and can we plan on fitting in any other activity on the day we do that?

I expect Chesler Park will take a long, full day.

Not sure what to expect in terms of crowds, but which would be best to do on the weekdays vs. weekend days to avoid crowds?

RESTAURANTS to try:

1. Desert Bistro
2. Center Cafe
3. Moab Diner?
4. Jailhouse Cafe?
5. Eklekticafe?
6. Miguel's Baja Cafe?

Thanks again for your thoughts and suggestions.
