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.

This was a beautiful area to drive through. The colors of the rocks were dark red and the river was rushing by with spring melt. We saw many rafters and wish we had time to do that. We did stop at a great winery along the way for a tasting and a few bottles.

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.
