As the crow flies, Parriott Mesa is located about seven miles northeast of Moab, Utah. It's situated immediately north of Castle Valley, south of the Colorado River, east of Porcupine Canyon, and west of Ida Gulch. It's a narrow 1.3 mile long north-south trending mesa with 400 foot vertical sandstone walls, reminiscent of scenery in Monument Valley. Castleton Tower is located to its immediate east. The mesa is named for Dale M. Parriott (1885-1958), an early settler who moved to Moab in 1904, and also had a ranch house in Castle Valley. As a youth he climbed the sandstone mesa now named after him.
