This is a nice paved road near Arches Park which has petroglyphs and the footprints of a dinosaur. We also enjoyed seeing people doing rock climbing on the cliffs. This took us about 1-2 hours since we enjoyed parking and looking at the petroglyphs. This road also has a hike to Corona Arch, which we did not do.

This was a fun road, a little scary in places. We took it from the top down. It was rated easy but some of the corners...wow.

My travelling friends like roads with "dots" because that means scenic. What a great trip across the canyon and a way to see the beautiful scenery up close and personal. What I didn't know was, the "dots" take you up a 3 to 4,000 ft switchback road, that had views that will take your breath away! At the top near... More

Did not know where we were going when we started. Road not bad, but narrow and have to share the road with bicycles and mountain climbers. Interesting scenery to an old potash plant. Don't know if it is still running, as was Sunday when we went there. Nothing on the other end, except if you are a 4x4'er.

We drove to Moab from Park City and decided to do a scenic drive instead of heading straight to the National Parks. We were travelling with my father who is disabled and were looking for scenic drives that he could enjoy. We hit the mark with this drive. It was an easy drive on a paved road with great views...

As an intermediate biker this was the most amazing ride for me. The best I've done (so far) in my life! Altogether from the rental shop in Moab (Chili Pepper Bike Shop) to the end of the paved portion of Potash and back it was around 40 miles... mostly flat with a couple of very small climbs on the way...

Really fun drive along the Colorado River. Be sure to stop and look at the petroglyphs. At the end of the pavement you can keep going, but be prepared for a rough road. We went on a high clearance AWD vehicle and would have been better with a higher clearance 4WD. Really spectacular drive.

The receptionist recommended the Potash road as a half day excursion. Read the TA reviews and went for it. Stopped to watch climbers on the rock face. Stopped for the amazing views. Stopped to see dinosaurs tracks. Stopped to see the Petroglyphs. Stopped to see stone Arches. There are toilets at main points. Trails off the road to hike. As... More

We did this road in a Jeep Rubicon with a 2 inch lift. We could have done it in our stock Ford Edge, but the jeep was a lot more fun. Our friends took the lead in their stock Jeep Wrangler. We took the Potash road to Shaffer trail exiting close to the entrance to Canyonlands National Park. No permit... More

This was a relaxing road that packed lots of nature and beautiful rock formation. If you look carefully you will spot petroglyphs along the way.
