I've been to Moab twice before and somehow missed this stretch of road along the Colorado River. The rock faces are staggering, Anywhere else in the country this would be a National Park. Here it is just one more fantastic sight,

A nice drive following the Colorado River. There are petroglyphs, river and canyon views. For campers there are many shaded sites that include picnic tables and fire pits.

We used this road a couple of times to access White Rim Trail and Schaffer Trail. The route takes you past the potash/ salt leach fields, which is kind of cool, but odd to see in such an otherwise pristine location.

Highly recommend traveling along this road, and if you have the time and a decent 4 wheel drive vehicle (or good stock SUV type). I would connect this trail with the Shafer trail which starts in the island of the sky district. That entire drive...More

This was a nice drive and a good way to kill a little time. The rock walls are shear and nearly straight up. It was neat to park and watch the people doing rock climbing. We never saw anyone higher than several hundred feet, but...More
