We drove the road on an off day from hiking in the national parks. You go up up up into a forested area. We went back into a hidden lake, where it was green and cool. The whole loop several hours, so budget time accordingly.

We decided to begin our drive on the LaSal Mountain Loop just south of Moab near Ken’s Lake. At first the road was a little rough which surprised us because we had read that it had recently been paved. After driving for several miles we...More

Take the time to see this beautiful area. Easy drive through some amazing country. The colors were perfect with the blue sky the day we were there.

Is there really a bad view in southeastern Utah, in the canyons and valleys, from the top of the buttes and mesas and mountains? Is there really enough time available to see everything there is to see in Arches, Canyonlands and Capitol Reef National Parks?...More

If you have time this detour off Rte 191 near Moab is absolutely worth it. We drove in from the South and wound our way through the mountains on a day that had very mixed weather which made for quite an adventure. At times we...More

We drove up into the mountains from Moab and the views are spectacular. It was fascinating observing the Free Range cattle making there way down the mountain . Also going from the desert to the snow covered area was something to see.

Beautiful scenery on this fully paved but winding road. It was well worth the time spent! Do not be overly concerned about the safety of this drive. If you are careful and drive at appropriate speeds, you should be fine. If you are a nervous...More

The trip was a beautiful drive. Although there are some turn out points, don't expect a lot of stopping. There are some trail heads, but we couldn't find information on them ahead of time so didn't know how difficult they were and thus didn't venture...More

This is an off-the-beaten-path scenic drive, not at all crowded, beautiful scenery. The scenery changes dramatically several times along the route, like going from one world to another. Don't mis it. It takes about 3 hours, with plenty of time for stopping to take photos....More

Hi. Sorry can't tell you, as we only drive thru. Mapmaterial isn't too good. We even got lost due to various roads not marked on map. And we always orient ourselves by map and don't rely on GPS. Maybe best to check with Moab... More
