Where can I ride?
Inside the Park
You can ride your bike or e-bike on all paved and unpaved roads in the park. You may not ride your bike on trails or anywhere off a road.
The Salt Valley and Willow Springs dirt roads are less traveled than the paved roads, but they are more suited to mountain bikes due to washboards, deep sand, and other obstacles.
You can pay your entrance fee at the entrance station or at the fee station on the visitor center patio. Read more about fees and passes.
You may experience long lines at the entrance station during busy seasons. Read more about traffic and travel tips.
Outside the Park
There are many options for riding bikes outside the park. Moab is surrounded by mountain biking trails of every difficulty level. Popular road rides abound, as well. A paved bike path connects Moab with the entrance to Arches, and continues along US 191 to UT 313 (which leads to Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse Point State Park).
The Moab Area Travel Council website has additional information about mountain biking or road biking outside the park.
