Great drive for views and fun

Fun if you like driving a twisty, narrow two lane road for much of the way. I thought it was great, as did my 16 yr. old son when he drove. If you don't like the twisty turny... read more

Gorgeous! we drove during the early part of October to see the beautiful colors of fall. We stopped many times to take photographs and even hike through the cottonwoods.

We took this 60 mile drive, reversing the suggested route because we wanted to hike Negro Bill Canyon towards the end of the run. Sunday morning, very little other traffic along the way. The road does have some major potholes to watch for, but they are the exception. We saw deer and wild turkeys along the drive and although others... More

What a great drive. The road is narrow a lot of the way which made for some excitement. A few spots to pull off and enjoy the view. Glad we took this route.

Lots of views but narrow roads so not many places to stop to take photos. Also wish there were some guardrails! Beautiful mountainous road - but not for the faint of heart!

Just down the same road as dead horse point state park. Most spectacular part of our trip. Trails are great. This is number 1 on the bucket list!

Drive this one south to north and you'll get some vistas extradinaire. Better as a passenger view-wise, as the hairpins and corners are best left focusing on as a driver. Either way, you will appreciate the 63 mile loop, and if you have the time and don't mind some off-roading, the dirt road to Warner Lake Campground is scenic too.

This is a nice, twisty road up through the La Sals, past Pack Creek and down toward Castle Valley. Worth a drive, but make sure you've got the right vehicle - SUV is recommended - and I'd avoid it if there is snow or any chance of freezing weather.

Amazing view, certain points you can see the Rockies. Be sure to take a 4 wheel drive in the winter.

Assuming you are in decent shape, this is a nice ride north and east of Moab. There are some steep bits, so be prepared. If you are here early in the Spring the loop may be closed by snow, so ask at a bike shop first.
