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

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

This road is packed with climbers. Be careful but go past all of them to get to the petroglyphs. No need to drive all the way to the potash. factory, so turn around at jug handle. The petroglyphs are great but be sure to keep...More

We enjoyed riding out this road and just watching the folks climbing the rock walls! There are these huge walls on one side of the road and the Colorado River on the other side. There is a turn off to see the Petroglyphs with an...More
