Instead of driving down the old dusty trail we included it in our air tour by through the Canyonlands. Flying by helicopter down the Colorado River was fun. We spotted wildlife and birds along the way. So no dust for us.

We took this road on our way to put into the Colorado River. Passed the old Potash Plant on our way to the boat ramp. Peaceful, quiet and beautiful. We saw many blue herons in the area. A river trip is the way to see this area for sure!

I had an absolute blast driving this old dusty trail along the Colorado. "Very very very cool" is an understatement! I felt like I was driving the jeep through a John Wayne movie backdrop. I can't wait to go back and try the whole thing with my own Jeep.

The road to canyon lands is worth the time, take the time to stop and check some of the arches and take pics lots of them. The kids enjoyed walking the arch that just bridged 2 land masses, a long ways down, but they are fearless.

Taking your time on this road is definitely necessary. Approximately 24 miles to the site of the Thelma and Louise cliff filming site. Wonderful views not seen by most. Four wheel drive recommended, and high clearance vehicle.

Just past "Wall Street" is a large rock panel with Indian Art and a small plaque with information. There are several other panels further down the road. Just past the first panel, at Poison Spider Trail, you can view dinosaur track fossils. Amazing!

We had camped at Dead Horse State Park, visited Canyonland National Park, and driven down Shafer Trail (SO fun!) onto Potash Road and continued towards Arches National Park- because we didn't want to drive back up the way we came. There is so much to see along the way- you'll be stopping to take photos constantly. :)

If you are staying in Moab and have several hours on your hands, take this drive. You will see petroglyphs/pictographs, arches, and the Colorado River. There are also dinosaur tracks and Indian ruins but I could not find them.

Nice scenic drive down the Colorado river, ending at the potash plant and then at about 21 miles or so onto the unpaved trail. The trail itself offer very nice views of the river and many other beautiful red rock canyon features along the way. The trail ends in climbing dramatic switchbacks up the canyon walls and into Canyonlands National... More

We drove the Potash road, after coming down Shafer trail from Canyonlands National Park. We own a 4x4 truck but never used it. Might have been just lucky in that the weather was hot and dry. I can imagine using four wheel drive in less ideal conditions. I would not suggest the drive in a stock AWD or passenger car.... More
