We wanted to see where the Blaze of Glory video was filmed. The site was a short drive off of Highway 128. We would like to return and do the La Sal Mountain Loop in the future.

Lucky us - we stayed in Castle Valley and so had reason to drive 20 miles of this road back and forth to Moab daily. The scenery is the best-of-the-best red rock - just spectacular. Don't miss it!

This valley is one of the wide spots along the river. Nice place to view boaters going by. There is also a winery that is fun to visit.

My 11 year old son and I decided to travel through Castle Valley while visiting Moab. It was worth the drive. Castle Valley is about 17 miles and goes though the entire plethora of scenery. You get the river, the huge rock cliffs, the valleys,...More

Yes, you can however, you will need a second car to pick you up. Remember this is the Colorado River and there are swift areas and smooth areas. Good idea to check with a rafting company ahead of time just in case. Enjoy.
