Awesome sights along that dirt road. Really great if you come out up the Shafer trail and drive the next few miles for a sunset at Grand View Overlook. Photographers will spend a great day. SUV advised.

Worth the drive. You'll want pix of both the petroglyphs and the scenery. When you are done, hop over to the small road on the other side of the river. More petroglyphs and the road eventually switchbacks down into the valley where you can find the cube-shaped rock with petroglyphs on all four sides---including a Birthing Scene!---and even more amazing...

WE did this road on a rainy day and the waterfalls off the bluff were great. Several stop points on road but worth the trip

This is a beautiful drive with absolutely stunning views. Puts you right along the Colorado River at the bottom of the canyon. See people rock climbing, beautiful landscape and ancient Native American writing. Was a wonderful way to spend the day!

Park at the poison spider trail car park and read the sign by the toilets which explains about the footprints and where to go. At the end of the trail there are two big limestone blocks one above you to the left with two good imprints. Then there is also a block down to the right. This block has raises... More

This is an awesome drive with tons of fun places to hike, camp, and climb. There is an area on it called Wall Street, and it is full of slab and crack climbs.

It was a beautiful drive on this road. It is fairly well maintained. Not too happy about the pot ash plant but it employees 45 people. So I can look over that.

Drive up Potash Road and you will find an old Native American rock art panel, rock climbing, trails to arches outside the National Parks (and thus dog friendly (bring a bag to clean up after your buddy) and the road to Schaffer Trail. Don't even try to take a car up the trail, but if you can do it, you... More

we started the road up in canyon lands and I admit, the first 15 minutes we thought we were going to die. But once the road started to level out it was one if the most amazing drives I have been on.

A great drive north of Moab with camping available and trailheads. There is also a large section of the road that borders a climbing area so you can pull over and get a great view of the climbers. Probably wouldn't be the first thing I do in Moab but it was a nice drive when you just want to sit... More
