Description

The La Sal Mountain Scenic Route is a loop that starts about 6 miles south of Moab off of Hwy 191, climbs steeply into the mountains over narrow switchbacks and some gravel sections and then descends through Castle Valley where it joins the Colorado Scenic Byway -- Hwy 128. Taking Hwy. 128 southwest brings you back to Hwy 191 a few miles north of Moab. The length of the full loop from Moab is 60 miles, about 25 miles of which are in the mountains. ..The route through the La Sals passes pleasant alpine meadows and timberland, campgrounds and picnic areas, and offers good panoramas of the desert canyon country below. It is often a welcome respite from the heat and baked red sandstone of most of the surrounding canyon country. ..You can spend anywhere from a few hours to most of the day to complete the loop. (The steep ascent and narrow switchbacks makes this a difficult route for cars with trailers and RV's.).
