you will need a four wheel drive plus an SUV that sits high as there is not much paved road. Lots of fun rocks to go over. When you start climbing up the canyon road it is a single track road with switchbacks and no guard rails. Fantastic views of the canyon from the bottom.

We took Potash Road from Moab to the Canyonlands Island in the Sky NP. Only possibly in a 4x4 but definitely worth it! The road itself is paved until just after the Potash refinery, but that is where the adventure begins. It is about 13 miles of unpaved, and in places unmarked, road to the entry or Island in the...

We had a couple of hours to spare and decided to get off the beaten track and take the Potash Road - great idea!! We had a small SUV, not a 4x4, and managed to drive to the Gooseneck. Definitely worth doing!

The drive is mostly flat that follows the river on one side and rock walls on the other side. You can stop and hike, camp or rock climb. Also good for a bike ride but might be tight in ares. Drivers do move over.

This is about an hour drive along the canyon and colorado river. There are petroglphys to see on the walls, rock climbers, just a neat drive if you have some free time, close to Moab.

Once I found out about this road, I've driven it every visit to Moab. One time I went beyond the potash mine and it was amazing. Wished I had a jeep so I could have gone on and connected with canyonlands... but couldn't do it with my car.

This is a gret scenic drive you can do in a car. It takes you through the canyon along side the river. If you have a capable vehicle you can continue along the dirt road and into Canyonlands.

When you take this drive, take your time. There is so much beauty that can only be seen by actively looking and should be enjoyed. Don't miss the 125 foot long panel of petroglyphs along the side of road. Be respectful of the ancient history and make sure others in your party do the same.

We went on an off-road tour and this was part of it. There were SUVs doing it, but we would not have wanted to. The scenery is beautiful.

Had no idea this place existed. If you are a climber this would be fantastic on the flat rock walls that run along the road. There are plenty of pull out places to sit and ppl watch as well. Very serene looking over the Colorado river as well. This is a gorgeous drive out to Corona Arch :)
