Don't ignore this drive - it ranks right up there with the surrounding parks. Just go slow - free range cattle everywhere. Beautiful views, wildflowers, and a couple of mountain lakes if you like going off the beaten path.

Allow several hours. Section down into castle valley rough and steep. Good views of mountains and across to canyonlands. And we saw a bear!

I like the drive, a nice get away and place for a quiet lunch. Some nice scenic views, cooler in the summer and a chance perhaps to see some wildlife, does take a while but worth it.

Beautiful relaxing drive. A very nice change from the normal Moab scenery. We even saw a bear walking through a meadow.

A two/three hour drive and second only to the two nearby national parks. Don't miss this drive and stay an extra day if you need to.. well worth it!

This is a beautiful drive. We stayed right off the loop on the mountain. The best way to view it is to come in off 191 just out of Moab, turn left by old airport road ( it will say La Sal Loop, continue up the loop and delight in the beauty, as you descend the other side you will... More

We drove the La Sal Loop two times during our stay in Moab. It was beautiful. Moab offers so much more than the red rocks and the Colorado River! The mountains are nice for a break from the heat and offer a view of the different landscapes of the area!

This is an amazing drive! We started south of town and went that way around the loop. It was so beautiful. You see so many kinds of terrain and trees. Stunning views. We saw a black bear cross the road right in front of us -- huge. We were in a Jeep Wrangler rental. I would not do this drive... More

Do Route 128 then take the La Sal Mountain Loop! The scenery is outstanding. You go from Red Rock desert, up into the mountains with Aspen trees. Lots of very sharp switchbacks and curves. Not recommended to RV's or Trailers, but we did it in a Chevy Impala!
