We had some time to spare and took a drive down this road. Did not go all of the way to the end result. But, the mountains were so close. And they offered free camp sites.

Many interesting side canyons and a few arches are visible from the road. We drove as far as the Potash facility. Well worth the side trip!

We drove this road in the winter, after a significant snowfall. Along the river and up to Potash is spectacular! At Potash, the road maintenance ends and it gets sketchy after that. Our car got stuck in the mud and we were worried but able...More

We jeeped this road and went on to Shafer Trail. The scenery is so unique and beautiful. We saw people climbing the rock walls. Where we had lunch near the Green river, we saw about 9 longhorn sheep grazing. It is quite a climb out...More

This viewpoint is great. Very good for photo shooting. Breathtaking views. You need to prepare a nice camera with wide angle lens.

Most beautiful drive and bike ride. Great rock climbing area and sweet campsites. I love mountain biking from the mine as far as I could go. Gorgeous in fall.

Along Potash Road you can stop to see Indian pictographs which are noted by a sign - there is plenty of room to pull over and marvel at the history.

Just 5 miles off the highway you will see a 150' wall covered with petroglyphs. Lots and lots of them. Rare to see such concentrations. Many climbers use this sheer cliff face for rope climbing--interesting to watch. If you go in the morning, all you...More
