The Colorado Plateau stretches across vast portions of Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico. Pick any of these states and you’ll find plenty to do in the Plateau.
You can hike through redrock canyons, paddle down lazy rivers, explore renowned archeological sites or visit some of the great western parks, including Grand Canyon, Arches and Canyonlands national parks.
One could spend a lifetime exploring the Plateau and never run out of things to do. Visitors can paddle down the Yampa river, go mountain biking in Moab or explore natural wonders like the Grand Canyon or Vermillion Cliffs.
The Colorado Plateau covers more than 100 million acres. We’ll help you narrow that down to the best places to go.
