Got on this road accidentally (GPS directed us here for Canyonlands). BEAUTIFUL. We turned around when the road turned to a 4-wheeler road - but driving along the river with cliffs straight us was beautiful.

This road is not as scenic as some of the other drives in the area, but it's still very nice. The shrubs block the view of the river most of the way. However, you can see petroglyphs, walk to Corona Arch, rock climb, and stop for a picnic at Gold Bar and take pictures. The mine at the end of... More

This drive takes you to some campgrounds by the river and to the climbing area of Wall street. The drive is nice!

If you take the road (and have 4 wheel drive) you can follow this road all the way into Canyonlands National Park. It's a beautiful drive if it hasn't been raining and the road is... More

Very scenic and fun to drive road. The first stretch from Shafer to the white rim can give you the shivers. It is a very steep road with switchbacks, Driving along the white rim gives you a great feeling of solitude and lets you see canyonlands from a different perspective.

Beautiful Drive! Be careful of people outside their vehicle looking at the Rock Art, and watch for traffic if YOU are looking at the rock art!!

This is a picturesque drive along the Colorado River with towering red rock cliffs along the other side. When you reach the end of the road you turn around to go back the same way you came. There are Indian writings along the way as well as picnic areas. If you stop at the state park at the turn in... More
