Looking for Moab lodging in Autumn can be a challenge unless you start planning far in advance. September and October are two of the busiest months of the year. The weather is exceptionally pleasant making it a wonderful time to visit Moab. Things tend to slow down a bit in November, but personally that is our favorite time of autumn to visit Moab.
The high season crowds have thinned out and prices drop as you move deeper into autumn. Early December is actually a great time to explore Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Generally, there is little to no snow, the skies are clear and the temperatures cool. If you dress in layers you will be really comfortable. While the mornings start out quite chilly, you get the benefit of not having other people in your photographs.
If you are looking for Moab lodging in autumn the condo in Moab is a great place to make your home base. There are 3 nice sized bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a fully stocked kitchen that any chef would love. The dining room table seats 6 and there are 3 seats at the breakfast bar. Enjoy beautiful views of the mountains and / or red rock scenery from every room in the condo.
Please keep in mind that overnight temperatures can drop well below freezing this time of year. That means there could be black ice on the roads early in the morning. If you are going to be driving before 10 AM be extra careful and leave lots of room between you and the cars around you.
There is a very pleasant walk you can do this time of year that starts in the center of Moab. This particular trail follows the creek in 2 different directions. Whether you go East or West is a personal choice but you can’t get lost on this little stroll which seems more woodsy than desert like.
Moab lodging in autumn is often booked many months in advance. Now is a good time to start your trip planning for the fall of 2023.
