We drove from Moab to Cortez, CO and decided to do the LaSal Mountain Loop on the way back to Moab. We got almost to the summit, but had to turn back because of deep snow blocking the road (this was Memorial Day Monday). It will be beautiful in a few more weeks with all the aspen trees up there....

The La Sal Mountain Loop drive is a must experience, but not for the faint of heart. There are switchbacks, heights, and potholes along most of the drive, but the views make it worthwhile. We actually did the loop twice. The first time we started off on a cloudy morning and soon found ourselves above the cloud line in the... More

An easy driving loop (but not for RV's) from Rte 128 across the western foot hills of La Sal Mountains and back to Moab. A different view of the red cliffs mixed with the alpine greenery & some snow. Oowah lake is a nice small alpine lake that's up a dirt road about half way through the trip. Budget about... More

Watch out for deer and elk! We could never go more than 30km/hr because there was steady animals on the road! But we don't mind, it was gorgeous! The road loops and winds it's way up the La Sal mountains and the scenery and views are just amazing!

We discovered the La Sal Mountain Loop by accident, we had been to Fisher Towers and decided to take a drive into the canyon. Hooray us. This loop is amazing, the day we were there it was cloudy up top and the view was non-existent but the scenery at the top was surreal. The road winds up to above 10000... More

This road has gorgeous scenery and tons of elevation gain. It should only be attempted by people in reasonably good shape, as there are some very steep pitches and gravel and potholes on the road. But it was lots of fun.

Before leaving town, on a whim, we decided to drive the La Sal Loop Road starting on the north side of town and then coming in on 191 at the south side of town. Wow, what a way to cap off an amazing week! Winding along the Colorado River nestled in between the red rocks the loop begins to climb... More

This drive gives you a taste of all. Amazing views, wide variety of climate. It starts at around 4,000 feet and you climb all the way up to almost 10,000 feet at the base of the Lasalles. Is a great round trip car ride if in Moab
