I Cycled the Potash Road - 31 miles!

Went with a group to cycle the Potash Road. Scenery was spectacular, along the river. The road has little traffic.

This road starts at the end of the pavement and heads to the white rim. Wonderful ride with tremendous views.

A great place to do some easy but still spectacular 4 wheel drive even in winter but also to enjoy some great rock art. A must do along the Colorado river

Potash Road, the downriver road along the Colorado River is not all that interesting or spectacular. Your travel time would be far better spent going up river east of the main route through Moab. The canyon features are far more interesting and the walls far higher, and the views of the river and the various lodges along this passage have... More

After two days of hiking we drove down the Potash road and were thrilled. We saw people climbing the cliffs and were amazed by the Indian pictographs that we could see from the road. In addition, the scenery along the Colorado River is very nice and alone is worth the drive. We decided to not try to take the hike... More

The Potash Road is a magical portal into Canyonlands National Park. It's like an artery feeding a vast capillary network of recreation options and surreal scenery. At it's beginning on Hwy-191, you are connected to the Moab paved bike path system leading into town, up the Colorado river, and north of town toward many more trails and attractions. Following the... More

The geology, the stunning views, the canyon vistas, & the dizzying heights to which the 4WD road up to Island in the Sky above will knock your socks off. The sometimes gravel/sometimes dirt road winds its way right up the towering cliff face to Island in the Sky via hairpin turns & a steep grade. The drive probably wouldn't faze... More

Everywhere we turn in Moab, it's beautiful! The landscape seems different in each area, and Potash Road was no exception. A little off the main route, it's worth the drive.

Took a drive along Potash road to kill a few hours after visiting Dead Horse State Park, and was really impressed. First, the scenery along the Colorado river is awesome, lots of places to pull off and take photos. Passing by the Wall Street section, we stopped to watch the climbers make their way up the cracks and crevices of... More
