It's a very interesting road-16 miles scenic drive. You can visit it now when Arches and Canyonland are closed.
Very nice views. You can hike to Corona Arch. You can also enjoy the views of Colorado River along the way.
If you go beyond mile 16, you are going to see a factory which doesn't add up to the view.

Be sure to stop and watch the rock climbers contemplating their routes up the rock face. 60% of the climbers are women! All levels of difficulty here. Plenty of petroglyphs on the varnished section of the rock faces too - stop and see. For the adventuresome and 4x4 vehicles, Take the road up Long Canyon up Pucker Pass and visit Dead Horse State Park.

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.

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!

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.
