Route 28, just south of Arches National Park, is spectacular. You drive through the beautiful canyon cut by the Colorado River millions of years ago. The river is almost always in view.

My 2 cousins and I booked reservations for the 1 pm Jet Boat 3 hour tour the day before we arrived. The tickets were pricey but the tour was well worth it. The bench seats were comfortable and had backs to them. A canopy was overhead to protect us from the hot sun. Rory our guide was very knowledgeable and... More

Loved this drive last January, lots of places to pull over for pictures or to just enjoy the views. Take this scenic detour and enjoy the views.

Don't miss this scenic drive when you're going between Grand Junction, Co and Moab, UT. It takes a little longer than the major highways, which are scenic too, but this is a much more interesting drive.

We came from Colorado and drove to Moab via I70 and then South on HWY 191, a very boring trip! On the way out we decided to take HWY 128 back home, a MUCH better choice! This route takes about 15-30 minutes longer (coming out to I70 at Cisco, just West of Fruita) but is well worth the extra time.... More

Be sure to save a whole day to explore this area. We were based in Moab & spent the morning & early afternoon driving 24 miles northeast on SR128 until we reached Fisher Towers or a few miles further to Dewey Bridge campground. Spend hours enjoying the scenic drive up and back along the Colorado River. You can enjoy either... More

Great camping, picnic and overlook areas throughout. Rafting trips can be arranged in nearby Moab. Access to the town of Moab makes viewing this ares especially enjoyable.

This drive was absolutely beautiful with stunning views of the mountains and the Colorado River. I highly recommend it. The drive does require care and I do not recommend speeding!

Absolutely beautiful canyon drive. The river looks perfect for a raft ride and the camping and picnic areas along the way look inviting. I love this section of the state. Everywhere you look is beauty.
