I would not recommend this 4x4 road I turn around at the boulder tunnel, as did the people in front of me. There are no problems with Potash Road

I consider this drive a "must" since it's only a couple minutes from Moab and you get to see an entire wall of petroglyphs. Almost immediately after you cross the Colorado River you take a left on Potash Road. You can take this road for...More

We were going to trek across the White Rim Road for a few days but decided to do something a little different than going down the Shafer Trail, therefore, we began our trip on the Potash Road beginning just outside of Moab. The Potash Road...More

We started our day from the north, visited Gemini Bridges - do not get too close to the edge and made our way to the Schaefer Trail. In order to access Schaefer Trail from this direction, you must enter Canyonlands National Park and pay $25...More

We did not know what was at the end of this road, so we decided to drive it. Turns out the paved road ends at the potash mine, but the drive is worth it. Once you go past the Indian petroglyphs and the two or...More

Drive along the well marked trail to the Potash plant and see the wonderful views. Easy access for even a stock jeep. You won't be disappointed

Really nice scenic drive to Arches and Canyonlands national parks. Lots of formations to take great pictures of.

The scenery is great, with huge canyon walls above the road alongside the Colorado river. You can enjoy the majesty of the rocks from the car, and of course there are a number of hikes easily accessible. Stunning geology.

While we were visiting the Tusher Tunnels, we picked up a conversation with some locals. They suggested we explore the Potash Road along with the Shaffer Switchbacks. We immediately made that our next Jeeping adventure right after we left the tunnels (which is also AWESOME...More

What Creek are you crossing? I did it in a low profile car and never had any issues.
Help! Rain forecast in western Utah is forcing me to make last min travel changes, want to head up to eastern Utah instead. I camp in my truck camper. I would love to camp at Gold Bar campground on Potash road, but BLM office this morning told that would be too full to even park in and sleep in the bed of my truck, and that in fact all the public camping in and around Moab, etc would be full by noon. Does this sound correct and if so any suggestions for other areas? I dont mind camping out of town, I just dont want to pay $100 for a tent site, if that's the case I'll come back another non holiday weekend
