Good way to spend the afternoon to escape the heat . Cooler at high elevations. Make sure you visit some of the small lakes and some of the trails. Cool remote roads but check for any road work where you are driving.

We thought while driving the loop, there would be some areas to stop and take a walk. No, there isn't. We saw one trail down to a creek with a sign which stated that this was a tough one. Although the route is scenic, halfway...More

This loop takes you into the mountains above Moab. Beautiful views of mountains and canyons. It is scenic. But check on road work along the loop. I was able to drive about 25 miles of loop coming from south side until the road was closed...More

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.

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
