Lots to see on Potash Road. You can see people rock climbing or go rock climbing yourself. You can see ancient Indian pictographs on the rock wall. You can hike to see dinosaur tracks. The Colorado River runs next to the road. Pretty area.

Beautiful drive along the Colorado River just north of Moab. Sheer rock face to your right along side the road host petroglyphs for those willing to scramble the short distance up a gravel/dirt hill. To your left is Moab Rim - a very formidable 4x4 trail. Watch as climbers scale the canyon wall. Turn up into the trailhead for Poison... More

Flat road and good for biking and seeing people rock climbing. A few good sites to see the jug handle rock.

We took Shafer Trail down and came out through this road. Nice scenery. The road takes you over some private land so be mindful to respect the land so that it stays open for public use.

The road was well maintained with pullouts and campgrounds. Not too busy in March, but probably gets pretty busy as the tourist season progresses. A fun drive for a couple of hours.

DO NOT miss traveling down this road to Potash! There are many viewpoints of Ancient Art & Dinosaur tracks along with great views of the river. Lots of climbing spots right along road as well as camping areas.

This was probably the favorite area for my adult children. We hiked to the dinosaur track fossil, Indian petrogyphs and beyond. Great rock climbing for amateurs, and great views from the top!

Great ride into the park. Didn't like the potash plant, but once you get past that it' fantastic. Have a 4x4 or Adventure Motorcycle and be capable of driving/riding it.

The paved portion of Potash Road is fine. Once leaving Moab, you'll see rock climbers scaling the red cliffs adjacent to the roadway. At the far end of the rock climbers you can see some rock art that is centuries old, but in recent years has been vandalized. Still, some good close photos are possible. Continuing up Potash road, Jug... More

First day in Moab, my partner and I rented road bikes and cruised Potash Road. it was a bright sunny day with temps in the mid 60's, absolutely perfect. The are hieroglyphs to be seen as well as awesome rock climbing. Highly recommend biking it to take in the natural beauty all a round.
