Rising from the valley floor to almost 10,000 feet. From the hot, stifling heat of the lower valley, albeit scenic, the rocky ridges, Lasal loop road is the scenic route into the spectacular Castle Valley.

We drove the road on an off day from hiking in the national parks. You go up up up into a forested area. We went back into a hidden lake, where it was green and cool. The whole loop several hours, so budget time accordingly.

We decided to begin our drive on the LaSal Mountain Loop just south of Moab near Ken’s Lake. At first the road was a little rough which surprised us because we had read that it had recently been paved. After driving for several miles we...More

Take the time to see this beautiful area. Easy drive through some amazing country. The colors were perfect with the blue sky the day we were there.

Is there really a bad view in southeastern Utah, in the canyons and valleys, from the top of the buttes and mesas and mountains? Is there really enough time available to see everything there is to see in Arches, Canyonlands and Capitol Reef National Parks?...More

If you have time this detour off Rte 191 near Moab is absolutely worth it. We drove in from the South and wound our way through the mountains on a day that had very mixed weather which made for quite an adventure. At times we...More

We drove up into the mountains from Moab and the views are spectacular. It was fascinating observing the Free Range cattle making there way down the mountain . Also going from the desert to the snow covered area was something to see.

Beautiful scenery on this fully paved but winding road. It was well worth the time spent! Do not be overly concerned about the safety of this drive. If you are careful and drive at appropriate speeds, you should be fine. If you are a nervous...More

Hi. Sorry can't tell you, as we only drive thru. Mapmaterial isn't too good. We even got lost due to various roads not marked on map. And we always orient ourselves by map and don't rely on GPS. Maybe best to check with Moab... More
