A really lovely valley, with great buttes. Come into it as part of Lasal mountain loop, and don't forget to go and see Fishers Towers as well

People miss this little gem, a short trip down 128. Beautiful rock formations along the lush Colorado River with the La Sal Mountains, close behind the rocks.

We didn't have any expectations when we turned off the freeway to head down to Moab on a backroad. The road was rough for first 10 miles but after you made the turn at the junction (highway 128) that got much better. the views were magnificient. I highly recommend taking this route.

Do the route 128 Drive through Castle Valley, then take the road up into the mountains for a view of the place from 8 thousand feet up It's a day trip, but one you'll remember for years to come!

If you stay in the Moab area and have the time to see Fisher Tower after Arches and Canyonlands, don't miss Fisher Tower, and enjoy out of this world views.

Though there is plenty you can do to wear yourself out, we drove this on a recovery day after tough hiking. Fisher Towers has a short little photo trail, and Rocky Rapids is a pretty place to see the river rushing along. Lots of places to pull off the road and just enjoy the views of canyons and water.

Started out following the Colorado River and took the turn off to Castle Valley. Very pretty valley - very green, very peaceful as we continued up to the Manti LaSal Loop.

We kept passing this turnoff on our way to the Sorrel River Ranch, so we took it one day and found ourselves in a little town in the valley between two mountains. Basically one road with little side streets. Picturesque, but nothing to rave about. No city planning so the houses are scattered all over. You can live there with... More

It's about a 1/2 hour drive from Moab, but it's a beautiful little valley with spectacular rock formations. Make sure to visit the little town library.
