Moab and Southeastern Utah Sights



Moki Dugway Review

Route 261 takes you to the Moki Dugway, a road that was bulldozed out of a cliff during the uranium boom. It's been improved since it was originally built, but its steep grade and tight switchbacks still provide thrills sufficient for most drivers. From the top of the cliff you're rewarded with outrageous views south over the Navajo Reservation with Monument Valley visible over 20 mi away. This drive is not recommended for vehicles over 20 feet in length.
