We drove this road after leave the parks and White Rim Trail. The canyon is just gorgeous! Corona Arch is just a few miles from Moab on this road. We stopped at one of the day-use areas for an evening bbq and to watch the sun fade and the stars come out. It was the perfect spot; we had no... More

This is a beautiful ride along the Colorado river and in many spots you can stop and see the indian pictographs drawn into the rocks. Very nice ride.

Fine road for all vehicles. Some cliff artwork along the way that is well marked. Beautiful scenery along the Colorado river ending with a fascinating view of the active Potash factory

It's a level ride with the river on one side, steep cliffs on the other, and you may see some hard-rock climbers along the way. You deadend at the potash plant.

This was a very difficult trail. It required heavy concentration and aggressive driving. I would do it again if given the opportunity. Dont GO ALONE!

The switchbacks off highway 313 are spectacular and cause the heart to beat faster for the occasional off road enthusiast. The vistas are beyond gorgeous! The road itself is pretty well maintained, but subject to rain washouts and other natural damage. After the switchbacks, the road is bumpy but not too tough. The road begins just inside Canyonlands N. P.... More

Take Potash Road about 1.5 mls North of Moab: from 191 take Hwy 279, aka Potash Road. The first 15-16 mls are paved road along... More

The dinosaur footprints, and the historic wall drawings are what this road seems to be know for, but it is a short drive from the main highway and a beautiful valley in itself to drive along. Really it does not take long to do this. You can see the dinosaur tracks on the rocks with binoculars, if you do not... More

My family and I drove Potash Road during our road trip around southern Utah. We all loved seeing the awesome arches and the super petroglyphs. Potash Road was definitely a highlight of our trip. Make sure to stop by Jug handle arch!
