Krzysztof M. on Colorado River Scenic Byway: Moab to Interstate 70
Awesome drive, fantastic scenery. Take 128 rather than 191 , it's well worth the few extra minutes.
I have been on both ends of the scenic drive at various times but miss a few miles in the middle. Love the Fisher Towers area
Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. If you come to Moab you have to do this drive
Took this road off of I-70 for our recent vacation in Moab. As we were staying in Castle Valley it was the right road to take. As we entered the Canyon my wife and I were held breathless by the view. Neither of us had seen anything like this before except in pictures. We had to stop several times to take it all in. It's also where we launched for kayaking the Colorado River later in the week.
Beautiful area. Moab and surrounding area is so geologically unique, and you get great views of that along this route.
We have driven on this road countless times. But every time I still enjoy it.
Except on cold winter days when it can be slick with ice.

Very scenic drive! Fisher Towers, The Dewey Bridge, and rafting put-ins, as well as campsites are on Hwy 128.
Bull Canyon is located off the Gemini Bridges Trail just outside Moab. Along with my sons Ron and Bob, we Jeeped this trail after viewing the Gemini Bridges. When we were on top of the Geminis, we decided to travel down Bull Canyon to get a look at the Geminis from below. Wrong! After about 2 miles down canyon, we got a flat tire, the side wall had given out. After changing the tire, we turned around to get back to Moab. We traveled about another mile or so when disaster hit, 2 more tires gave out! We were forced to hike out in 95 degree heat in the middle of the day back 10 miles to the highway, hitch-hike our way 14 miles back to town. Then we rented a Jeep Wrangler, went back to retrieve the flats, returned to Moab to buy new tires, And again returned to the disabled Jeep Cherokee rental and after putting on the new tires, returned to Moab with both Jeeps. Lesson learned, do not use 'street tires' when you off road! What a day, a "day that will forever live in Infamy", but what memories....
took it out of Moab after a rafting trip. Awesome views, very much worth the trip.
Very pleasant drive and scenic view of the Colorado River. Gorgeous country. Added plus, it doesn't cost you any drive time if you are headed east on I-70 out of Moab.
