Drive through Scenic Castle Valley

     - Out-and-Back Trail

    Added by Kelley Le

    Take a detour and drive through this scenic route as you make your way to Moab.

    Going west on Highway 128 towards Moab, take a left onto La Sal Loop Road. And you're there! To get back to Highway 128, simply turn back on the same road. You can also take a right onto Porcupine Ranch Road, meeting at La Sal Loop Road again, eventually reaching Highway 128.

    During this drive, you'll catch views of free range cattle and Castleton Tower. You can also see distant mountain ranges and canyon walls. If you decide to get out and photograph Castelton Tower, there are several little cacti plants along the desert floor, so be careful!
