The drive on 128 along the Colorado River is definitely breathe taking. I continued on towards I-70, and took a right at the "T". The road is kinda rough but still asphalt. It was a beautiful drive, and the town of Cisco is a virtual ghost town. This highway is a must drive or ride, on motorcycle as what i... More

A large complex right on the Colorado River - we had the all you can eat barbecue lunch and toured the lodge where there are displays of movies made in and around Moab.

Great scenery. The dirt road is only about 30 minutes off Highway 191 on 128. Well worth the drive. Onion Valley and Fisher Towers are just down the road and well worth the visit.

Visited spring when new leaves coming out. Magnificent contrast between trees and red rocks. Oasis along the river. Snow in the LaSals. Recommend driving to the residential area near Castle Rock for a different perspective of desert living. Valley area a must do drive when in Moab

Nestled in a quiet green valley surrounded by red cliffs and Mesa's, this place is a true GEM. Jason was an excellent host

It was very near out hotel do we journed the 2 miles extra there. Well worth even the 16 miles from hwy. It was just as pretty as something at the arches or canyon lands. Plus it's less traveled!

A medium difficulty hike with some exposure. Less crowded than other hikes. You get very close to the magnificent, tall rock walls. Great views.

Probably 20 miles upriver from Moab, the Colorado River canyons open up to this beautiful, mini-monument valley. Drive up Onion Creek Road, check out Fisher Towers, dip your toes in (or float!) the mighty Colorado, or just park and take in the vast, magnificent enormity of the area. Stop at the winery and get a bottle of you choice!

This is one of the great drives in America. You are surrounded by mammoth red cliffs, with the Colorado River flowing below you. Wonderful stone monuments are on your way - including Fisher Towers, Castle Rock. Lots of western movies made here - including El Dorado and Rio Grande. Put this on your top 5 - you will not be...
