Frequently Asked Questions

To see Arches and Canyonlands properly, you should spend at least 3 days. With extra time or hiking ability, 2 more days will allow you to do lesser-visited, but still rewarding sites.

Certainly! If you’re visiting for fewer days, just pick the days that interest you most.

We design our itineraries for first-time visitors — those who want to see the best of an area. We don’t want you “missing out” on famous attractions! But we also place a high value on variety. So we might have a day where you do a hike in the morning and a scenic drive in the evening. We consider many different things when designing each day.

Our itineraries are extremely detailed. If we tell you to do a scenic drive, we will tell you where to stop for the best views and, when necessary, give you some historical background. If we tell you to go to a popular location, we will cover parking tips. For hikes we include accessibility and terrain. We also include ratings, costs, and time frames to help you make the best choice for your travel group.

Yes! Our philosophy is that it’s better to over-plan and cut things out on the fly than it is to have extra time and try to plan something on the fly. We efficiently group together many activities in our itineraries because we don’t every want you to wondering what to do next. But you can easily cut things out and adjust it to meet your needs. We have both worked with the elderly and disabled. Though we often suggest day hikes, we try hard to make the itinerary accessibility-friendly. We travel with our children and our retired parents and keep all types of travelers in mind.

When we travel with our retired parents and our kids we look for experiences and adventures they can do. When we travel without them we hike all over the place. We are well aware of the needs of those of all ages.

Anyone who wants to get a good overall feel of Arches, Canyonlands, and Moab. Anyone who wants to see the most famous sights, with some lesser-known sites as well.  

Yes! Though our itinerary is designed for the vast majority of tourists who visit in the summer, it’s possible to visit Moab in the winter and the itinerary still works! But check for closure of some roads and activities.

Yes!! Although we update our guides as needed, the concepts how to view each park are meant to be timeless. We encourage you to purchase the guide as soon as you know you will be traveling. It will help you determine which areas to stay and how many days to obtain lodging. Upon purchase, you’ll be guided to create an account on our website. If we update the guide, it will automatically show in your account up to 18 months after purchase.

  1. We just returned from a fun trip to Moab, Four Corners, Mesa Verde, the “Million Dollar Highway”, Black Canyon and Great Sand Dunes. For this trip, I purchased your Moab guide and found it to be extremely valuable and very helpful for us first timers to Arches and Canyonlands. We loved how detailed the guide was as well as the maps. We are in our 70’s and out of shape, so the information provided in the guide helped us to be able to find the short hikes, which we might have otherwise missed. I liked how you mentioned the time it took for the different viewpoints or driving areas or places to see, etc. I liked the different itineraries in the guide for 1-2 days or 3-5 days, the hiker plans, etc. We only had 1-1/2 days in Moab, so that information was very helpful. I also liked all the information on what to see and do around the area besides the parks. We were able to see what we wanted thanks to your wonderful guide. Thank you so much for such valuable and helpful information! I will certainly let anyone I know about your guides! I am a regular watcher/subscriber to your videos and thoroughly enjoy them. The information in your guides and videos is invaluable!

  2. We have just returned from our tour of the Arizona and Utah. I would like to thank you both personally for your excellent guides (we bought the ones for Zion, Bryce, Moab (Arches) and Grand Canyon). They were superbly edited and a great help to planning our hikes and excursions.
    The audio files accompanying the guide also proved a great help and are well worth listening to on the journey to the parks. Very informative and entertaining.

  3. Hi Matt and Cheryl,

    We just returned from a Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, and all 5 Utah National Parks trip. We used the wonderful work you do to plan most of the trip. We starting watching your videos in the fall of 2020. We had gone to Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, and the Badlands in August of 2020. We found your videos on YouTube after getting home, but we wanted to see how we did planning that trip compared to how experts like yourselves would have planned it. We then became regular watchers of new videos you produced.

    My wife is a special education teacher like Cheryl so we wanted to support a fellow teacher as well.

    For this trip, we purchased your Moab guide and found it to be very helpful. You directed us to a couple of hidden gems that we might not have found otherwise. The La Sal mountains scenic drive for us was one of the top things we did in the Moab area. We had lunch at the top and enjoyed a great view. Corona Arch with its fun hike was our favorite arch in the entire Moab area which you helped us find.

    We will tell anyone we know heading to Moab to purchase your guide.

    We also took your advice about skipping Dead Horse State Park and saving the parking fee. We skipped the slot canyons around Page, AZ on your advice as well.

    A big thank you overall!

    We are looking forward to your Colorado videos.

    Keep up the great work and good luck on your endeavors.

    Kind regards,

    Craig and Jill Adkins

  4. My wife is the planner. When I saw how detailed your maps were I knew she would love it. If we hadn’t of purchased your plan, we wouldn’t of known about some great driving locations south of Moab. After this trip, I emailed Matt and Cheryl with questions about which national park to visit next. Cheryl took the time to answer the email and gave me several suggestions. Well already planning for our next trip to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons.

  5. Incredible guide. I was able to see all that I wanted as the guide was so detailed
