Potash Road was amazing! It runs along the Colorado River so you have that view. There are petroglyphs that are exceptional! I got some excellent pictures of them! There are fossilized dinosaur tracks also. A lot of history on this one road. Definitely worth the time!

The petroglyphs are a few miles down the road literally on the side of the road. There are signs and pull offs so you can get out of your car to take a look at these ancient drawings.

This road is accessible by standard Passenger Cars, 4x4's are not required, but use caution in spots along the way. Stick with it and end up going up the Shaffer Switchbacks to Canyonland National Park and paved road back to Moab.

I took this down from Canyonlands National Park to Moab Salt LLC on the way to Moab, and made a video of the ride. It was awesome! Here's the ride: https://youtu.be/F439OAwv8fk

One of the most scenic drives anywhere. I rode my bike down and back in September, and had to take my family back by car to see all of the sights. Indian Petroglyphs, Corona Arch, Colorado River, the list goes on.

Saw the road during a Canyonlands Jet Boat tour and decided to take the short paved and scenic drive. Nice drive along the Colorado. Watch for rock climbers along the way.

Seems like a nothing road. But watch the signs for and check out the Indian inscriptions carved into the cliff face. And then the dinosaur footprints a bit further on. I kid you not.

This was one of the highlights of the trip. We drove one of our jeeps to Moab so we were well equipped to drive a dirt road back from Canyonlands but we had no idea how amazingly scenic it was and every bit as worth seeing as any other gorgeous point in the parks. A must do if you have... More
