“Beautiful drive along the river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Arches National Park was closed so this was one of our alternatives. Beautiful drive along the river. Could not see Jug Handle arch as the road was washed out. It was very scenic. We were able to get closeup views of the petroglyphs. Views of the river were good.

“Great two hour tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Worth the side trip down this road! You can see a dinosaur footprint, Indian petroglyphs, and hike to a great looking arch. Also with a 4-wheel drive vehicle there is a long trail that takes you into Canyonlands National Park!

“Worth Your Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

This short trip is relatively off the beaten path. It offers a nice view of the Colorado River, some wonderful wildflowers, and some nice hikes. It isn't as spectacular as other places around Moab, but check it out if you have an hour or two.

“Indian Drawings”

So glad we took the side trip off of route 191! The indian drawings on the canyon walls were amazing to see. I was sad to see that people have defaced them though:(

“Potash Road Rock Art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Potash Road is a flat, well-paved drive just to the north of Moab. Along the way, there are 3 well-marked pull-outs where you can view Anasazi rock art (petroglyphs) which have been carved into the rock. The glyphs are generally about 20-15 feet above the roadway, so you have to look carefully for them, but the signage and pullouts along the road help you to find them without too much effort. This is an easy, pleasant drive to take after a long day's hike.
