This is a really fun to river to raft. But wear an older swimsuit, because the water is always red and will stain. Some pretty fun rapids in a small kayak, but I don't think it would be very fun in a big 10 person raft. Great put in and take out locations.

This is a spectacular drive along the Colorado River. Camping, rafting on the river, and biking on a great bike trail are all available. The red rock canyon walls are gorgeous.

Whether one goes up the canyon for one of the raft trips down the Colorado, or just a car trip through the spectacularly beautiful Colorado River canyon, this is a must do trip. Go at least as far up the canyon as Fisher Towers, or take it the entire way between I-70 (at Cisco) and Moab. The stunning beauty of... More

Follows the Colorado River with breathtaking views of the red rocks. Fun to watch the rafters and kayakers.

Make the most of your trip to Moab by getting on the river! The sites are amazing! If you don't have your own equipment. Book a jet boat tour or rafting trip.

A nice drive but by far not the best byway we've taken. There are a few good photography spots and is a great time filler of you need something to do.

Check this scenic drive up Route 128 and explore the many campgrounds areas. There are excellent viewpoints and some great rated restaurants/winery up the road.

Adrift Adventures took us on a day long float down the Colorado (14 miles). My Great Grandfather, Francis Marion Bishop, was the first to map this river from actual field notes while on an expedition with John Wesley Powell, and it was my first time to "walk in his footsteps". Our guides, Sam and Niel, were knowledgeable and personable and... More

This is my favorite drive in the world so far. It's humbling as you realize are small humans are and how awesome nature is. GO!
