Monticello, Utah Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Monticello is a small town (pop. 2,400) at the edge of the Abajo Mountains. At 7,000 feet, it boasts more pleasant summer temperatures than other communities in southeastern Utah. It serves as a good base for visiting the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park (45 miles northwest) and the bordering Abajo Mountains. It is also en route for those traveling on Highway 491 to or from Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado (90 miles southeast).

Golf is Monticello's highlight and the Hideout Golf Club is truly unique, situated along the Outlaw Trail in the shadow of the Abajo range. Sports in general are something to watch in Monticello, especially triathlons and motocross races.

Monticello is located at the junction of Highway 191 and Highway 491, about 55 miles south of Moab and 21 miles north of Blanding. Monticello has a number of motels, a few private campgrounds, several dining establishments and most other services a traveler might need.
