Advice needed for Moab trip

Jump to last reply

I am in the very preliminary stages of planning a trip to Moab for the Moab Music Festival. We have one week and would like to fit in Arches, Canyonland, and Capitol Reef. We will fly into Salt Lake City. I have read that the parks get extremely crowded on the weekends. I've also read that spring and fall are the best time to go. Given the choice of taking the trip 8/28 - 9/3 to avoid the weekend, but risking hotter weather, or waiting until 9/8 - 9/14 which will have us in the parks during the weekend but possibly be cooler, which would you choose? I know it's only an 11-day difference so it's probably a ridiculous question. (I really tend to overthink things as you can tell.)

Also, should we stay in Moab as a home base for the whole trip or move around?

And lastly, I like EASY hikes. I do not do well with a lot of uphill climbing or scary ledges. Are there enough easy hikes in all 3 of those locations? I love the outdoors and don't want to spend the whole time in the car.

Thanks for any advice you can give me.
Laurie
