La Sal Mountain Loop

Beautiful and relaxing drive that got us into the "mood." An added fun feature was seeing wildlife, i.e. cows that seemed to enjoy vacationers.

We were driving the Colorado Riverway Scenic Drive (Rte 128 just outside Moab) when we noticed a side road...so we took it. It was called the La Sal Loop. It turned out to be a narrow, windy road up Mt Waas & La Sal Mt. It was a nice ride up the mountain and the air was cooler than in... More

This loop is filled with amazing views and wildlife. We saw everything from chipmunks, rabbits, deer, cows, horses and even a small black bear!

Great experience camping just off the Loop Road. Beautiful scenery, wild flowers in July, and cool evenings. Highly recommended as a way to beat the Moab heat !

We had not planned on this loop. It was an accidental find that was a highlight of our trip. The 64 mile loop takes you on a wonderful trip where you see canyon features from a distance and then up close. I suggest you begin the loop off Hwy 191 near Ken's lake. You will come out on Hwy 128... More

This is an absolutely incredible ride; however, one does have to use caution. We entered the loop off of U.S. 191, south of Moab and turned onto Hwy. 128. Our 60-mle ride ended when we came back out on U.S. 191 right across the street from our campground, Moab Valley RV Park. We highly recommend using this park as your... More

Took the loop as something to do in the afternoon. Basically, it is a very scenic drive. However, there are not enough pull overs on the loop to take scenic pictures. If you are patient, at or near the highest point, there is a place to pull your car over for one spectacular panoramic view.

This was a nice drive but if you want to do a hike in the mountains to escape the heat, you will have to go up any of the National Forest Service dirt roads. I was in a Prius & by myself so I didn't want to do it! A good way to get out of the hot desert.

About a 65 mile round trip loop into the La Sal Mountains/Manti-La Sal National Forest near Moab, UT. You can drive it with a two wheel drive vehicle. The main road of the loop is paved, we took a side trip to Warner Lake (5 miles each way) which was gravel. Spectacular views of both the mountains and the valley... More
