If you mountain bike, rent bikes :).

If you are spending the night in Moah, try to visit Arches in late afternoon to get a feel for the place, then head NE on Rt 128 to Castle Creek Winery for dinner. Try the award winning Outlaw Red (reminds me, I've got to order another case). On the way back to Moah in the dark, they may be lighting up the cliffs with powerful searchlights. Very eerie. Then get up before dawn and go back into Arches to watch sunrise at the Natural Bridge.

My photo album of a car trip through Utah back in 2008 is here:

You're right - so much to see and do. Big secret: the state parks can be just as exciting as the national parks and not crowded. Ask your innkeepers -- they know the best places.

Hi Bill (and thanks Zan for all the suggestions so far!) We have two nights in Moab, one full day and two half days. And I think we are staying at the Castle Creek Inn, so that winery sounds just the ticket!

And yes to Arches!

Going at sunrise or sunset is nice too, to get the pretty colors on the arches.

The views down onto the Colorado River from Dead Horse Point State Park are spectacular and worth checking out.

Devils Garden trail in Arches is very cool. Easy first part to several arches and then primitive trail with some to rock scrambling.

I second Boris's recommendation of Dead Horse State Park.
