Moab In May: Pros & Cons?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning to visit Utah next spring for about a week. Two or three days will definitely be spent in Moab, hiking in the National Parks. According to my guidebooks, April thru mid-June is optimal for this activity.

Since May is my favorite month for vacations, it would be my first choice. But my initial research indicates that it is other people's first choice as well! Many of the motels/hotels I checked are pretty well booked for the month and those with vacancies are charging premium rates.

I don't expect to have such a popular outdoor destination all to myself, but I would like to avoid peak season crowds - and prices - as much as possible. I have flexibility as far as specific dates are concerned, but would like to go when it is warm enough to hike in shorts.

Are there any special events scheduled in Moab for May that I need to work around? Should I set my sights on late April? Suggestions, please!
