Located in the heart of the Colorado Plateau, the Bureau of Land Management's Moab Field Office serves 1.8 million acres of scenic canyon country. Carved by the Colorado and Green Rivers, Moab's public lands include a vast variety of arches, natural bridges, mesas, and spires. These lands comprise an internationally recognized recreation destination. The extraordinarily scenic and diverse landscape, the accessibility of the great rivers, the presence of interesting cultural and paleontological resources, and the opportunities for a wide range of recreational activities have made the Moab area very popular for those seeking outdoor experiences. Recreational opportunities range from casual sightseeing, moments of solitude and hiking to more physically demanding activities such as mountain biking, rock climbing, and river running.
Our service project along the scenic Colorado River road and towering Wingate sandstone cliffs is trail work on several trails leading to some of the premier hiking destinations in the area. We'll work on trails leading to Grandstaff Canyon, Castle Rock, and Fisher Towers. We'll camp in a group campsite reserved for us by the BLM near the trails, offering us seclusion and peace in the evenings. There is also a chance we might work on trails outside of the Colorado Riverway. On our day off, we'll have our pick of areas to visit including hiking to numerous rock arches in the area.
This project is rated as a strenuous project.
