Visitors to the nearby Arches and Canyonlands National Parks should definitely go to Moab. Anyone, who loves mountain biking, will like the city. But don’t just bike or walk, fly over the city and see some of the most rugged and inaccessible terrain in the country.  Or drive: You may find the 4x4 wheeling exhilarating. Try some snow activities as well. The shocking contrast of the pure white snow against the red sandstone is visually spectacular. As for hiking, you have many options. But if you want to bring your dog with you, try the Hidden Valley hike.
