It's steep, thin, dirt, long, narrow, with no barriers. It rises 1500 ft with a winding road with sheer drop-offs. Not for caravans or long vehicles given the sharp slow switch backs, not the faint of heart. When you get to the top turn left...More

We had no idea where Google Maps was leading us when we said we wanted to go to Natural Bridges National Monument. We later backchecked our GPS and the Nuvi bypassed the route. We drove a while on flat land and wondered how we were...More

We did as part of a day tour from the North 261, including Muley Point, Moki Dugway & Goosenecks SP. We read many reviews of the Moki here, so no surprises. We were in a 1 ton Dodge Dually, 8' wide. So, the road is...More

I wasn't sure how to rate this. I don't understand why this is on a state route. I understand people like these kind of drives, but it seems like it wouldn't be on the state route. I have a fear of heights, so I was...More

As the driver it was an amazing climb up from the bottom. Wife sitting in the passenger seat may say otherwise, but it is a great view. Nice dry day when we were there. I wouldn't try it with the vehicle we had if it...More

We drove down from the top of this unpaved switchback road and the views are absolutely spectacular, though the road is narrow with 2 lane traffic and you really do have to keep your wits about you. It is not a long drive and you...More

This road is not paved. I drove up it mostly on the hill side, Beautiful views but no where to pull off and take photos. This road is not accessible to large vehicles such as rv's.
