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.

We knew that Highway 128 was scenic but the spring beauty of the red mesas, canyons and the Colorado River was spectacular. if you're in the area, go!

This area was nice, we camped along the river, but in late May, it was still running at high capacity, so I'm sure it would be a lot better when lower. Camping spots are nice and some of them you can get shade as well as camping at the base of some amazing rocks.

On our way to Arches we rode our motorcycles around this loop and it was a fantastic choice. I had been to Arches before but did not have time for this loop. Wow am I ever glad I did it this time. No fee to drive trough.

The road from Cisco to Moab Route 128 is well worth the effort, it is narrow and windy in places but is an awesome drive. The views of the river and rock formations are awesome, you wont get much closer in a car There are many places to stop and hike which we didn't have time for, it would be... More

We were in Moab for the Moab Car Show. On Friday we were part of a "cruise" that took this beautiful trip along the Colorado River. Highly recommend this trip for anyone spending time in Moab.

The red rock formations were jut outstanding and the road follows the Colorado River all the way. Much better route to I-70.
