This is quite a drive with many view points, trails and wildlife. Warner lake is worth the drive up to see with the Aspens surrounding it in the fall. Be careful of the edges on this road and use only designated pull outs. In some areas, it is a long way down.

I did this loop my first full afternoon in Moab and found that it provided some nice views not only of red rock formations but also mountain sides with pines and aspen and even some snow on the highest peaks. The road quality varies but as long as you take it easy on the narrow or rougher portions and the... More

We drove this in the evening, starting at Moab, then along the river, turniong right onto the loop. We were staying at Mount Peale Cabins, so this route took us home. We were driving a basic small rental car, non 4WD, so some care was required. The road is patchy, but perfectly do-able and the scenery makes it worthwhile. There... More

An easy drive from Moab and some nice views. We fitted this in after the Negro Bill Canyon. Something different from the red rocks and worth the drive.

A fun and beautiful ride. I am slightly afraid of heights and had to close my eyes a few times as I felt we were going to drive off the cliff. But it was gorgeous and we did it twice.

This is a great drive with plenty of places to stop along the way. The views out in to the valleys below are absolutely breathtaking! There is also quite the temperature change as you climb higher and higher so remember to bring a jacket. We saw plenty of cyclists riding down; it a rough and sometimes narrow road so always... More
