This is a mountain bike trail enveloping every type of riding from singletrack to a paved bike path. The scenery is mind boggling from tree line in the alpine ecosystem, through red rock canyons, into the Colorado River valley. The high country can be closed for snow, most reliable months for the trail in entirety would be July – September. The Whole Enchilada is gaining more notoriety than the famous Slickrock Trail also in Moab. This bike ride requires advanced skills. For easy or intermediate rides, discovermoab.com/biking.htm has the right route for many others to unwind.

Moab Brewery

A favorite watering hole in southeastern Utah, the Moab Brewery is also a packaging agency, selling full-strength Micro-Brew  to go. Red Rye IPA one of the newest releases is soon to be found in the Mix It Up 12 pack variety box. Currently 16 ounce 4-packs of Red Rye are available throughout Utah. The restaurant is family friendly with quirky interior design themes reflecting lively Moab subjects. Good eats and happy sipping.

Sorrel River Ranch & Spa

An opulent Western vacation, the Sorrel River Ranch has charming rooms, lavish spa treatments, and a farm-to-table restaurant tucked into the resplendent landscape of cliffs and canyons. Enjoy tennis, hiking, horseback riding or lounging by the riverside pool.  Unwind with a toning Cactus Wrap or yoga classes at Sorrel River Ranch & Spa.


Moab Under Canvas

Luxury camping from suites containing a hot shower and flushing toilet to Tipis with camp cots and bathrooms close by, Moab Under Canvas is not a traditional campground. It is glamorous camping or, Also-Known-As, glamping. Stays come with breakfast. Order a lunch to go for your day of adventure. Instead of room service, Moab Under Canvas has fireside provisions for do it yourself pre-prepped menus. Advance orders are required.

Canyonlands By Night

Un-Wine –d & Dine is a terrific twist on Happy Hour. The bar tender provides your beverage selection, the boat captain navigates up the Colorado River to a spot that is tranquil and as the boat drifts back to the riverside restaurant live Western entertainment is enjoyed. Once back at the dock, a Dutch oven Cowboy style dinner awaits. Typically available three times a week, plan ahead so this experience is not missed.
