The Area

border_warnerThe private, nightly cabin rentals at Whispering Oaks Ranch are a great location for exploring the Moab area. Climb approximately 4,000 ft in elevation (20 miles) to enjoy the incredible views and the cooler mountain temperatures.

In addition to all of the amenities of our private property and cabins, you have convenient access to a number of Moab-area sights and activities…places both on and off the beaten path. Our cabins are resourced with Biking, Hiking, and ATV trail guidebooks. If you like to plan ahead, we are happy to answer any questions you may have about the Lasal Mountains and Moab area.

Viewpoints

Second in line to the view from our Cedar Bend deck is catching a sunset at the Castle Valley Overlook, less than 8 miles from the cabins. There are two places you can get a glimpse of this extraordinary view.

border_castlevalleyFirst, is from the Lasal Mountain Loop Road. Drive just 6 miles North from the cabins, and there will be a pullout on the left. This may be accessed year-round. The second, and most incredible overlook, is via the Sand Flats Road, and is about 7 miles from Whispering Oaks. The road is unpaved, and 4-wheel drive is recommend for the last 1/2 mile. If you enjoy viewpoints, this one will take your breath away!

Looking to hike your way to an incredible panoramic view? Check out the Geyser Pass area just a few miles south of Whispering Oaks Ranch. There are many hikes in this area that will take you to 11,000 ft and higher. This is also a great spot for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter.

Nearby Lakes & Hiking

Warner and Oowah Lakes are within 6 miles of Whispering Oaks Ranch and offer beautiful mountain scenery, hiking trails, and fishing. From Oowah lake you may hike up to Boren Mesa for an awesome view of the mountains and canyonlands. Clark Lake may also be accessed from this trail head.

Early summer is an awesome time to drive to Warner Lake as the views are beautiful, the wildflowers are in bloom, and you’re almost sure to see deer and lots of birds….keep that camera handy!

Arches & Canyonlands National Parks

border_mesaArches & Canyonlands National Parks may be accessed in less than 1 hour from Whispering Oaks Ranch. These parks are what attract so many visitors to the Moab area every year.  Many of our guests feel that the beautiful drives from the parks to our cabins are well-worth the extra minutes in the car….and the panoramic views!

Two of our favorite hikes outside of the National Parks are Corona Arch and  Morning Glory Bridge.

Biking

Whether you are on a road bike or mountain bike, the Lasal mountains are a great basecamp for your Moab biking adventures!

The Lasal Mountain Loop Road is one of the most popular road bike rides near Moab. This iconic loop is roughly 62 miles and can be ridden in either direction. When coming from south Moab, Whispering Oaks Ranch is located about 20 miles along the loop, and at nearly 8,000 ft elevation (one of the highest points along the road). For more information about road biking in the Moab area, click here.

There are a number of advanced mountain biking trails that begin right in our backyard including the famous, Whole Enchilada.

Ride up to connect with this trail or take a shuttle, and access this area in less than 15 minutes. If you’d prefer to ride in the lower elevations of the Sand Flats Recreation Area, take the Sand Flats Road from the cabins and enjoy!
