Several places to stop along the route and take short walks. We encountered free running horses, snacks, and pretty landscapes. We didn't have time to take in the hikes/ walks available. Nice afternoon drive and pretty pictures.

Beautiful ride, especially on a motorcycle. Road was closed so we wet as far as we could on one side. Then went through Moab, stopped for lunch and went up the other side. We only were not able to drive on about a mile.

This is a nice drive with some great spots for taking pictures of the mountains. The only downside is that the drive is through a wooded area for over half the drive with no view of the mountains.

I agree, a couple of hours should suffice for the drive, but we took our time exploring some of the lakes and camp sites, so took a bit longer. We drove through Castle Valley on the way back to Moab which is very... More
