This is a beautiful drive. Give yourself plenty of time to stop and explore and hike at the different areas along the way.

We decided to drive out of Moab this way. I don't think we saw an entire soul the whole time. It was a beautiful way to leave Moab to head back to Denver, and enjoy more of the surround beauty of the area!

We were in the Colorado River area a few times on our trip. he scenery here is amazing. Although we didn’t do any rafting, we still did lots of activities. This is truly a gem of the American West

A must do while you're in Moab. Right next to the entrance to Arches. Drive up along the Colorado river for at least 20 miles. Very scenic. There's also a road the peals off toward Castle Valley, do this as well. You will enjoy.

We were here on a Jeep excursion in May 2018. There are endless trails & so photo-worthy. There is also rafting, horseback riding, 4 wheeling, and good food. Or just relaxing is fine too! Great place for families, groups or couples. Close to Moab.

This is an unbelievable drive. There are several places to pull over and soak it all in. I have driven it twice and I still marvel at the formations.

We enjoyed an early morning walk on the trail that follows the Colorado River. While we saw more bicyclists than walkers, this trail was great for both. We enjoyed the beautiful canyon, trail and river. A nice way to spend a few hours.

I do not think you should let the kids play in the water. The river appears to me to be too fast and I did not see any calm areas.

The colorado riverway rund east from Moab or you can come from the east off of Interstate 70. You could do the drive as a day trip in about 3 hours from Moab to I-70 and then back to Moab. It is worth the time.
