I have never been to Castle Valley, wanted to go for years. It had snowed and I was surprised the road up the Colorado River hadn't been plowed better. We drove into Castle Valley. I was expecting a more scenic area, but perhaps if it wasn't snowy it would have been neater. We will have to come back and do... More

Moab has some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen and I have traveled all over. I would recommend to anyone from couples for a romantic getaway to families to visit.

One of John Ford's favorite movie locations. Just driving in you expect to see John Wayne come riding over the hill with the Yankee Calvary. Well worth the 20 mile side trip to see this.

Fun drive. Neat stuff to see. Not as spectacular as Arches, Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point State Park, but few places are. Still worth the trip.

It was a kind of small Grand Canyon with the Colorado River serpentining through the bottom. Too much snow to use the trails which would have been awesome but the view from the visiting area was great. A must see around Moab.

The most pleasant day was spent here. We booked the Red Cliffe Lodge 3 hour horse trekking and were not disappointed. We are novice horse riders and were completely safe in the care of our excellent Cowgirls. The staff at the Red Cliffe Lodge are second to none.

If you saw any John Ford cowboy/cavalry movies, you likely saw this location in one of them. Breath taking view of the Valley from the La Sall loop

Castle Valley offers beautiful and unique scenery, best in late afternoon for photo ops. Scenic Route 128---Colorado River Scenic Byway---one of most scenic drives in the country leads you to the Castle Valley turn-off.

Castle Valley (route 128) is a beautiful ride. we did it today, combined with the La-Salle Loop and saw exquisite views of mountains, rock formations, deer, cows, and even snow! If you have time, take 128 all the way to I-70 and turn right at the intersection to go to the ghost town of Cisco. it's a quite drive through... More
