Since we were guests in Moab in July, we were looking for activities that were not out in the summer sun, and decided to do a couple scenic drives. The La Sal Mountain Loop was suggested by many folks as a very scenic drive. We started at Utah 128 and ended south of Moab. The loop itself was beautiful, with... More

La sal mountains are spectacular, but not all the lakes are pretty. Cows roaming on the roads you drive on and some tricky driving in places. If you venture off to some of the lakes be prepared for stones and gravel driving. Significant temp drop, as you can easily get to 10,000 feet, and see snow, even in July.n

If you are like me and can only handle the summer heat of Moab for so long, take this road. It's a gorgeous way to escape the desert heat and get up into the mountains. Not only is there huge groves of aspen trees for shade, but the elevation and moisture really help to cool you off. Plus when you... More

It is a long drive with lots of curves but you will be surprised and delighted with amazing views. The road are a little rough with some pot holes but they are paved. Along the way we saw black cows, Momma and Babies so be careful coming around the curves because they could be right in front of you. We... More

The La Sal loop is a 65 mile drive out from Moab along a Tarmac road. It does have quite a few potholes but can be driven in any ordinary saloon car. Choose a clear day and I recommend doing the loop anti-clockwise. You pick up the road about 3-4 miles south of Moab along Highway 191. Be careful you... More

After spending previous day hiking, we thoroughly enjoyed our day drive on La Sal Mountain Loop. Lovely drive with several outlooks. Views are beautiful.

I decided to try the Ls Sal Mountain Loop drive while in Moab in the hopes of seeing more wildlife. I didn't end up seeing too many animals or birds (although I am sure I would have if I had gone earlier in the day), but the scenery was well worth the drive. It can be a little scary in... More

This was a fine evening's drive with some beautiful vistas. The cows were lounging right around the roadside, though, so be careful on the curves. We ended up for dinner at the Red Cliffs Lodge, which I'd also recommend.
