Highly recommend traveling along this road, and if you have the time and a decent 4 wheel drive vehicle (or good stock SUV type). I would connect this trail with the Shafer trail which starts in the island of the sky district. That entire drive...More

This was a nice drive and a good way to kill a little time. The rock walls are shear and nearly straight up. It was neat to park and watch the people doing rock climbing. We never saw anyone higher than several hundred feet, but...More

Turning off the 191 north of Moab, just before the entrance to the Arches, Potash Road leads past popular rock climbing sites, with Indian writings and makes it way to the Potash recovery works. From there it is possible to follow an unsurfaced track into...More

Nice drive along the Colorado River with large canyon walls on with side. Only 16 miles, but well worth the ride.

This was my best off road experience ever. We came through a steep narrow canyon and under a weed rock. Recommend coming in entrance close to Deadhorse SP instead of Rt 279 for best views.

The potash road is an old back entrance to Canyon Lands Park and like almost every road out of Moab has sights worth seeing! U can only enter the park with a licensed guide! We used Navtech Guides and had a great adventure!

We drove this road in the afternoon where the light was excellent for photography. What is good about this road is that they have an area called Wall Street, where you can see climbers in action. Absolutely fascinating.

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!
