Drove this route while traveling from Moab to Grand Junction. It is simply breathtaking in its shear beauty. You will not regret driving this route and it should be on everyones "bucket list" of places to see.

Do not go to Arches without driving this byway. Took us past a ghost town, Cisco, then scenery after scenery. Seemed unreal. Be prepared for slower travel, but worth it

My kids and I really enjoyed the contrast of sceneries going from end to the other. The roadway was smooth and well maintained. I recommend everyone traveling from the east visiting the GC, ZP, or Bryce to take use this road!
