A worthwhile side trip that will inspire you and renew your soul. The colors and structures are unique. Watch for teenagers that seem to love to race their new four wheel drive trucks through these side roads. Make sure your children are buckled up.
We took numerous jeep trails on our Utah vacation. This was our favorite. We were blown away by Glass Mountain. Temple of the Sun and Moon were also gorgeous. We did the entire 55 mile loop and it was fabulous. Towering monoliths, panoramic vistas and out of this world landscapes. We started at the Caineville entrance and at the end...
It was us and maybe 1 or 2 other cars the entire time. Be prepared with your own supplies, food and water. I woulnd't suggest it if there were wet roads.
The views are terrific, and the road, a great out of the way place. You feel like you are on Mars.
This is THE drive to take if you are a desert lover. The route we took requires a high clearance 4x4 as a river crossing is required along with some other rather rough and sandy stretches. We saw wild turkeys within the first 10 minutes of our adventure but you're likely to see deer, antelope and Desert Bighorns as well....
