If you visit Moab, don't overlook Castle Valley. Not only were a number of movies filmed there (for good reason), it's very strikingly beautiful. Tip: To get an excellent view of the valley after turning off Route 128 (which follows the river) and drive about 10 miles down that road and turn right on the loop road. If you follow... More

We camped in this area, and when the sun rises or sets it is simply amazing! The colors truly come out in a deep red/orange color. It can get very hot in this area, so enjoy this during the morning or evening, or bring extra water! Not very busy at all, so picture opportunities are abundant.

Beautiful sight to see but watch out for the locals, they'll run you off the road! They don't appreciate the slow driving tourists much:(

We headed out of Moab back to I-70 this way - and continued to be amazed by the geography. The colors are different- enjoy.

Do not miss this easy drive by Castle Valley. After a long day of hiking we drove by the beautiful Castle Valley. A perfect way to cool down for a little while after hiking all day in July.

The monuments are real nice but there needs to be some upkeep, advertising and general maintenance done so this too can be one of the great sight seeing areas.

Castle Valley is where a number of locals have their ranches. Old timers who remember the old days where Moab wasn't much of a town at all. The rock formations, scenery, blue sky and clouds is spectacular!!!

Plenty to see and do. Saw dinosaur tracks, breathtaking vistas and hiked from easy to reach locations for us "weekenders".

This drive was a delight and a must stop is the Castle Rock Winery. The wine tasting was good and the museum was very interesting. There have been some GREAT movies made in that area. Beautiful Drive

As you approach Moab from Interstate 70, heading south, as I believe most people do, you will see a range of mountains. They were still snow capped in June, when we arrived. We were immediately interested in seeing them closer up, as the area around Moab is desert, or close, and the main tourist attractions are Arches NP and CAnyonlands... More
