Nice Drive

Found this road, last year, drive it then and again this year. It leads you into the Canyonlands NP, along Shafer Trail . I think having 4 wheel drive would be a must.

Take in the sites from all angles. The camera has much to capture. A sunny day is even better to enjoy it.

It's quite the drive from Canyonlands down to Potash Road. Amazing but take your time. Beautiful views. Fun red dirt road.

If you want to feel all alone in the world, like the last people on the planet, drive from Moab into Canyonlands on Potash Rd! Amazing scenery, you'll want to stop the vehicle every mile for pictures. The potash ponds reflecting the sky are impossibly blue and white, and anyway, whoever heard of potash? Google it, it's fascinating! Continue on... More

The paved portion of this road takes you up to the huge potash processing plant. The next 8 miles will test your maneuvering skills around embedded boulders and rutted roads. The end of that first stage is worth it for the huge mesa overlooking the Colorado River canyons. But the final stretch (which we did not take in our Volvo... More

Best done in conjunction with Shafer trail out of Canyonlands. Potash is a dirt road route, maintained just enough to make it passable to stock high clearance vehicles when dry. Access from the east is a little confusing, as you have to cross private property of the Intrepid Postash mine(hence the name). From the West, access is from Shafer trail(make... More

Like everything else in Moab, this ride has killer views, great photo ops, and shots of the always perfect Moab sunsets.

This drive started out in a blizzard for us. We could not see the distant rock formations but could see the ones close up. It was still pretty. Then the sun came out and we were at the river overlook. Breathtaking with the new snow and clouds in the blue sky.

We have traveled this off road trail quite a bit, This last time was not a good ride. Due to all the rains, it was a very harsh trail. Not bumpy but "harsh". It will take some time to dirty up and smooth out a bit.
