We stayed in this Valley during our September visit to the Moab area (see our review of Castle Valley Inn). The Valley itself is a delight - a hidden oasis above the Colorado River, roughly half an hour's drive up from Moab. If you're not staying within the Valley, it's well worth a half-day's visit nonetheless, although you need to... More

This area along with everything along Rt.128 or the La Sal Loop is among the best sights in the US. Early morning or late afternoon bring special viewing rewards.

We ended our trip through the La Sal Mountains at Castle Valley. The leaves were still on the trees but had changed colors. The sky was the blue color that is only seen in the west with clouds and sun. Great day for photographs!

Not much to do here except look at the monumental rocks, LaSal Mountains and red cliffs. If you are a rock climber you'll be interested in the world class Castleton Rock. Or for a moderate difficulty hike you can climb Parriot. Occasionally we have the base jumpers who enjoy favorite spots from both Castleton and Parriot. For most the attraction... More

Highway 128 the best road you will ever travel. Every turn is better than the last. A lot of people go here to camp, hike and bike.

To complete a total experience of the Moab area, it is not complete unless you v is it Castle Valley and do the loop road over the LaSals. In Miners Basin, you might even find gold! A visitor found the largest gold nugget in the 1990s playing frisbee with is dog!

We finally saw this on our last full day when we drove the north part of the La Sal Mountain Road. The valley is very beautiful and there weren't that many people. It ties in with a loop of the La Sal Mountain Road and the Colorado Rivery Byway.
