Things to do in Monticello

(Last Updated On: August 13, 2014)

Monticello is located in southeastern Utah right between Moab and Blanding. This area is a huge hotspot for adventures, so we have made this page to outline some fun ideas if you are traveling in the area. Here are a few things that Monticello has to offer:

Wilson Arch is located right off the highway between Moab and Monticello. A short, steep hike takes you right up into the arch.

The Frontier Museum is located right on Main Street. Check out a little of Monticello’s history, including a massive tractor built in 1912.

Canyonlands Needles district is just north of Monticello. Several short hikes await, including our favorite to Cave Spring.

Newspaper Rock is right on the way to Needles and features one of the most concentrated petroglyph panels in the world. Be sure to make this stop if you are in the area.
