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.

Absolutely awesome to view-so much different landscapes! Well worth the time to see, and stunning photos to take back home.

Much, much quieter than nearby Arches and Canyonlands, but full of beauty and local color. The walk to Fisher Towers (a moderate hike) was a real highlight.

Beautiful drive. Take the La Sal Mountain loop road from the Colorado River to high into the mountains and then back to Moab. Lots of scenic overlooks along the drive with big views of Castle Valley below. I did not see any services along the way so bring your water, drinks and lunch with you.
