I just went to the La Sal mountains and Warner Lake today. It was great! There is construction going on but not for this part of the loop. There are spectacular views and it's a great cooler getaway from the hot desert. It was 75...More

This was a wonderful cool escape from the heat in Moab and the local parks, but we were a little disappointed that we were not able to complete the loop due to road construction about 13 miles into the trip. Check before you go to...More

Take a day and take the loop. Be sure to take the side roads and visit Warner Lake and Oohwa Lake. Pack a lunch and enjoy the cool mountain air and crystal clear waters nestled among the tall Aspen trees. Perfect.

Currently the road is closed a few miles past the north entrance, but if you follow the access road for several miles, you will still get a good view of the La Sal mountains.

Good way to spend the afternoon to escape the heat . Cooler at high elevations. Make sure you visit some of the small lakes and some of the trails. Cool remote roads but check for any road work where you are driving.

We thought while driving the loop, there would be some areas to stop and take a walk. No, there isn't. We saw one trail down to a creek with a sign which stated that this was a tough one. Although the route is scenic, halfway...More

I am a little confused about the closure. Obviously during the construction, this is not a loop. I guess it is in an and back out the same way, Where is the best place to enter to get the most out of the available scenic... More
