Road needs some work and some sections have some pretty tight quarters. You want to time the sunset so you are on the way down. Recommend going in from the highway 128 side.

Not any amenities in the road but as a lover of driving cars on new roads this was a joy for me. Did not meet a lot of traffic and the road was in a relatively decent state.

This road was partly closed but what we did see was well worth the drive. Lovely views and very good to drive.

It was 109 degrees in Moab when we decided to take a drive up to the La Sal Mountains where the temps were 20 or more degree cooler. The roads were paved and gravel and Lake Owen was a hidden gem.

We camped at Warner Lake and started the drive to find the campground around 7:00 p.m. We didn't really know where we were going, but it was a gorgeous drive all the same. We welcomed the cooler temperatures as we climbed up, up, up. (It...More

I just went to the La Sal mountains and Warner Lake today. It was great! There is construction going on but not for this part of the loop. There are spectacular views and it's a great cooler getaway from the hot desert. It was 75...More

My husband and I drove the loop on a day that we (a) wanted to sleep in, and (b) wanted to beat the heat in Moab. It took about 3 hours to complete and offered stunning views (and a bit of an adrenaline rush since...More

I am a little confused about the closure. Obviously during the construction, this is not a loop. I guess it is in an and back out the same way, Where is the best place to enter to get the most out of the available scenic... More

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
