Arches National Park Sights



Colorado River Scenic Byway—Route 128

Colorado River Scenic Byway—Route 128 Review

One of the most scenic drives in the country, Route 128 intersects U.S. 191 3 miles south of Arches. The 44-mile highway runs along the Colorado River with 2,000-foot cliffs rising on both sides. The gorgeous Castle Valley is home to a winery, orchards, and a couple of luxury lodging options. It also passes through world-class climbing destination Fisher Towers before winding north to Interstate 70. The drive from Moab to I–70 takes at least an hour.
