An easy drive with good scenic reward and offers a fun experience. You don't need a 4x4 to drive on it. Good. Doesn't take long either so fits into your plans easily.

You won't be disappointed. Where else can you enjoy a slot canyon with the comfort of AC on a hot day?! It's amazing and my teens were oooooing and aahhhhing the whole time. So worth it.

We hiked Grand Wash and it was lovely, especially about 1/2 mile in when the canyon walls get closer together. Really pretty!

This National Park is a favorite for its rugged beauty and stunning geology. Don't miss the Grand Wash Road. There is a wonderful opportunity for hiking at the end. Happy the senseless uranium mines are closed.

Be sure to exercise caution before going on this road. It can fill up quickly with water from flash floods. High clearance is recommended but not required. Beautiful drive

Interesting place with great rocks. This allows you to get to a couple trails and is probably the closest to the Cassidy Arch trail.

Instead of climbing up and down like most of the other hikes, this is an easy one, quite relaxing and enjoyable.

This is a very easy hike and the drive to the start is one of the most beautiful drives I have been on in a while. You will also see several carvings dating back to the late 1800's. It was quite windy and if there...More

Road is well groomed for a dirt road. Narrow at times going through the canyon. Was easy to hang out the sunroof and take pictures while my husband was driving. The road takes you to the Capitol Gorge trail. Picnic area is nice but the...More
