we took bypass/Hwy 128 as recommended by other trip Advisor members. Jaw dropping cool. Our travel schedule didn't allow any actual 'staying' or enjoying the River or hiking or biking, but we WILL return. Just driving along on 128 and seeing what we saw was an experience in itself!

This is the second year in a row my wife and I travelled this beautiful road. We went somewhat out of our way to see it again. It stretches from I70 down to Moab following the Colorado River.

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.
