La Sal Mountain Loop

La Sal Mountain Loop Review

On Old Airport Road (a left turn off from U.S. 191) 8 mi south of Moab, the 62-mi loop climbs over the laccolithic mountain range, affording some great vistas of the valley. The road enters La Sal Division of the Manti–La Sal National Forest just as the dominant red-rock cliffs east of Moab begin to alternate with sagebrush and juniper flats. Passing through the cool heights of La Sal Mountains, the loop winds north through red-rock country to Castle Valley and an intersection with Route 128. The road is paved, except for a couple of gravel sections, but it has steep switchbacks, and it does become snow-packed in the winter. Check with the National Forest Service before embarking on winter driving on this road.
