I felt like I stepped back in time to the wild west. We made a lot of stops to marvel at the scenery. It's a scenic drive right outside Moab. We went in winter and weren't able to drive up to the overlook on the mountain because there was so much fog but, still saw a lot. Can't wait to... More

Great scenic drive from I-70 to Moab. The valley was wonderful. Visited the Castle Creek winery along the way which was an unexpected treat. The adjacent lodge looked lovely.

This is a beautiful drive. So many colors. My son kept talking about all the dinosaurs that lived in the area. You could picture dinosaurs roaming.

A lonely valley near Moab with the best B&B I've ever been. If you seek quietness, but still don't want to be too far away from Arches & Canyonlands NP, this is a place for you. 20 minutes ride from Moab centre, all along beautiful Colorado River.

A really scenic drive with plenty of pull over stops (and toilets!!) to make the most of the views. Worth a slow meander down.

Beautiful little garden of eden in the red rock. You have to turn off the main road to enter town. Keeps traffic down for the locals. No phone service or any services that I noticed.

On a recent trip to Moab, we stayed at a wonderful lodge in Castle Valley. Scenery there is beautiful and we enjoyed our time there.
