Moab, Utah » La Sal Mountains

With its soaring peaks over 12,000 feet, cool pine forests, sparkling alpine lakes, and unique geology, the 1.4 million acre Manti-La Sal National Forest offers a wonderful retreat during the warmer summer months in Moab. Since the La Sal Mountains are only a 30 minute drive southeast of Moab, seeing this beautiful area is a wonderful add-on to any tours you are doing in the Moab area or as part of a guided tour such as the Sunrise Bike Tour.

General Information

The 1,413,111-acre Manti-La Sal National Forest is located in southeastern Utah. It is managed for multiple uses such as range, timber, minerals, water, wildlife, and recreation. The forest is divided into three land areas: the Manti Division, the La Sal Division at Moab, and the La Sal Division at Monticello.

The Manti Division is part of the remnant Wasatch Plateau (5,000 to 10,000 foot elevation) exhibiting high elevation lakes, diverse vegetation, near vertical escarpments, and areas of scenic and geologic interest.

On the La Sal Division-Moab, mountain peaks (12,000 foot elevation), canyons, and forest add climatic and scenic contrast to the hot red-rock landscape of Arches (5,000 foot elevation) and Canyonlands National Parks.

The La Sal Division-Monticello offers timbered slopes to provide a welcome middle ground and background contrast to the sand and heat of Canyonlands National Park, Natural Bridges National Monument, and the surrounding desert. Pictographs, petroglyphs, and stone dwellings are evidence of past civilizations.

Private and State lands exist within the forest boundaries and may be closed to public use. Please refer to maps and information on land ownership, which may be obtained from the Ranger District offices.
