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!

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.
