Quiet place, with a fantastic view at few meters from Colorado river, with all amenities needed to make a great picnic, but the food must be bring from home.

The views are really great. The road is easy and be sure to stop at the winery for a "small" tasting.

We rode this road on our motorcycle and it was beautiful. Red cliffs on both sides to enjoy while motoring along. We then turned around and rode it coming back into Moab just as beautiful. It was not a long ride but well worth the time.

A very scenic road to motorcycle along. The dmoring ride, just after sunrise, makes for great viewing, and the cool among the rocks make it very enjoyable. If you bicycle, there are paths just for you, too.

We spent time in this beautiful area and enjoyed every minute. We saw rock art, swam in river, saw night skies, went to Red Cliffs ranch for lunch and the museum. There are endless opportunities for enjoyment. In short, we wish we'd had more time.

If camping is your thing, the campsites along this area are very scenic!! Not too many campers when we were there, and a nice alternative to the crowded National Park campsites!

If you have time to spare after doing Arches and Canyonlands then this is a lovely area to explore. A nice drive with petroglyphs.

The river is stunning in Moab and the sightseeing, hiking, rafting, picnicing and other rec opportunities are endless. This is the Southwest at its best.

This is their best way to go from grand junction to Moab. The scenery is very beautiful. The Colorado river follows you along. The road is good and it is an easy drive....

The river was flowing very well due to run off and there was even more local snow added in the higher elevations. Huge camp of personal sized cabins at the ranch, with great views.
