2017 DePaul University Alternative Spring Break @ Moab Area (Utah)
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.
Our service project along the scenic Colorado River road and towering Wingate sandstone cliffs included trail work on several trails leading to some of the premier hiking destinations in the area. We worked on trails leading to Grandstaff Canyon, Castle Rock and Fisher Towers. On our day off, we had our pick of areas to visit, including hiking to arches.
