Best Hike in Greater Moab Area

It's bit a jaunt out to the Joint Trail, but it is well worth it! There are few people, and endless views. It is super fun running around the slot canyons, and massive boulders.

Amazing way to see the Needles

The Joint Trail is a must-see in Canyonlands National Park, and Chesler Park is no less interesting. Highly recommend making these destinations if you're in or nearby the Needles District.
