Spur of the moment trip to Moab: Questions

Jump to last reply

A sudden break in my work schedule may allow my wife and I to travel to Moab in early October. We'll have three or possibly four full days in Moab, and have always wanted to see Arches N.P. A few questions:

1. If we spend two or three days focusing on Arches, what is the best way to maximize one or two remaining days for Canyonlands?

2. We are avid hikers, and don't mind strenuous day hikes. Devil's Garden and Delicate Arch trails in Arches look like can't miss hikes. What about others in Arches or Canyonlands? Can anyone recommend Chesler Park or Confluence Overlook trails in Canyonlands considering the limited time we'll have? How hot does it typically get in early October there?

3. Are there any hotels in Moab that are of the quality of, say, a Desert Pearl Inn in Springdale, UT or would B&Bs like Cali Cochitta or Dream Keeper be preferable (if available on this short of notice)?

4. Restaurant recommendations in the area would also be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
