We drove home via Hwy 128 and it had so many beautiful areas to see. The trees were changing colors and we had great places for pictures. There are several camping areas along the way and the river is beautiful. Great drive home.

This is way way more scenic than most of the badged “scenic byways”. We had done the rather dismal Flaming Gorge route the day before and there is simply no comparison. From the point the gorge starts to the point you turn onto the main...More

I do not think you should let the kids play in the water. The river appears to me to be too fast and I did not see any calm areas.

The colorado riverway rund east from Moab or you can come from the east off of Interstate 70. You could do the drive as a day trip in about 3 hours from Moab to I-70 and then back to Moab. It is worth the time.
