Drove the Dugway and loved it! We were in a car and although we ride motorcycles, might not try it on a bike since there is a lot of gravel. However, having said that, we met 2 bikers from Canada who came up it behind...More

My son and I happened upon the place when we were coming back from Natural Bridges National Park. Most people were coming from the bottom. If you want shock and awe approach it from the top. It was terrifying at first sight, you are so...More

We cam from the south and thus went up. The road is not paved but very well maintained and poses no problems. It is steep, but because of the switchbacks it’s good going. The views over Valley of the gods are amazing and you can...More

As you approach the solid wall of cliffs you might wonder "where are we going on this road anyway?". We'll just you wait until you're looking down from them.

Drove it back in May 2009 (not 2019)(TA webmaster sux), and was in awe. I'm used to off-roading in the mountains of East TN... but this is different. Ya gotta do it. I saw at least 3 vehicles that "didn't make it", and were evidently...More
