Take 128 off of 191 for a shorter way to see some of Utah's best red rocks. And do drive further on 128 East along the Colorado river. Spectacular.....don't rush !

Moab is a busy town with lots of traffic and the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks get really busy. If you want a little respite from all the traffic and crowds then this short and beautiful drive is for you. Turn right on the 128 as you exit Moab to the north.

On the way you will pass by the Castle Creek Winery - a great stop to take a break and taste local wine. Next to the winery is a resort with a stellar bar and restaurant overlooking the river. A great place to have a drink or eat. Past the town of Castle Valley the road winds up the mountain through forest and has spectacular views.…

We have been to Moab many times and I was glad we took a few hours to explore the back side of the mountain.…

We were just driving around after visiting Dead Horse Pointe and took a side road. This was a very good decision, we saw the castles and then ended up in LeSal National Forest.

The view from above? Is Just Like Heaven. Get on a mountain bike and ride the Porcupine Rim Trail to experience what I'm taking about.
