I did the entire trip from arches all the way until the 70. It was muddy and very slippery. Not gonna lie there were times that I thought I might get stuck. I have a Jeep Wrangler 4x4.

Washboard access road. Nothing special about it except for the views. But the same views are obtainable without the bumpy ride.

This is a dirt road that is accessible to any vehicle. However, it is extremely bumpy, perhaps from the wind blowing the dirt. So, while there is no need for 4x4, at times it creates significant shaking in the vehicle, resulting in a slow and less than comfortable ride.

We camped off the trail a bit. No shade so you need a canopy and lots of bugs. But isolated and no camping neighbors.

Don't turn onto the 4x4 roads unless your looking for some trouble. Most trails off this road are moderate to difficult so watch out! Tons of fun though!

The Salt Valley Road breaks off the main Arches Hwy between The Sand Dune Arch and The Skyline Arch. It goes down into Salt Valley and turns north to the northwest boundary of the Park. If you go to Tower Arch, you will go on the Salt Valley Road, whether you use the hiking trail or the 4X4 road. Good views of Klondike Bluffs on this road
