The Abajo Mountain Range, or Blues as they're also referred to, are a small range topping out at the 11,362 foot Abajo Peak. They are forested with aspen and fir and in summer provide a good break from the desert conditions of lower lying areas. There are a couple nice scenic drives through the range, including one to the top of Abajo Peak. There are also a decent network of trails through the range for hiking in summer, and cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in winter. The Abajo Mountains are not well known and remain relatively uncrowded.
The Abajo Mountains are located just west of Monticello and north of Blanding in southeastern Utah.
