Celebrate with a Milkshake

“Sometimes, when I’m hiking somewhere near Moab and chatting with other people, I think about saying something like, ‘You know what’s great about this hike? In about 75-minutes, you can be at Milt’s Stop & Eat’,” says Brendan Leonard. “Milt’s is a 19-mile drive from Delicate Arch in Arches National Park, it’s 55-miles from Indian Creek and 75-miles to Canyonlands’ towering red and white striped sandstone needles. I mean, when you think about it, it’s kind of the nucleus of all that rad stuff.”

In the first episode of our Mileposts series, we explore the National Parks around Moab, Utah–and celebrate with a milkshake.

    A great story! But please, for the love of your listeners and all things dusty, please don’t chew into the microphone. I almost hurled. Gross.

    Milt’s has been my savior many times. There’s also a nice green shady park on a creek right across the road for lounging with belly full of milkshake and cheeseburger… So satisfying. Long live Milt’s!

    Awesome story. I’ve been to Moab three or four times, but never to Milt’s. Can’t wait to check it out!
