Great little trip if you get up a little late and want something to do. It is very scenic, the elevation gain affords you some great photo opps at the south end of the loop, and it drops you back onto Highway 191 just south of town. Late afternoon can provide some dramatic light for photos. Tip- go in good... More

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.

On a whim I decided to head up to Castle Valley and do this loop. I really didn't know what I was getting into. The road was narrow and winding and I was going through areas with lots of snow with spots of ice and slush. But we'd round a corner and get hit with spectacular views. The road is... More

If you want a different angle to look from at the Moab area, this is a great way. You will hardly cross any other tourists on this drive and find some great places for a pick-nick. There's some little mountain lakes, too - a great refreshment on a hot summer day.

high above moab, it was awesome. We saw wildlife that was breathtaking just for a cruise. Be careful the wild turkeys run across the road from time to time. Other than that, we enjoyed it! We drive it again.

Completely different scenery (and temperature) than Moab, even though it's so close. We went to a couple of lakes, but since we didn't have a four wheel drive it was a bit bumpy. Stunning scenery though, with beautiful colours (trees) and views.

Began following the Colorado river and the Mountain Lop from low elevations up narrow switch backs to the forest and the many stunning views were amazing.

The La Sal Mountain Loop offers amazing opportunities to experience some of the most iconic film scenery Including the instantly recognisable scene from John Ford's Rio Grand. There's also amazing views across the mountains as you drive the loop. We parked up at a view point took out our picnic chairs and table had lunch and drank in the views.
