Moab and Southeastern Utah Sights

Colorado River Scenic Byway—Route 128

Fodor's Review

The start of one of the most scenic drives in the country is found 2 mi north of Moab off U.S. 191. The byway runs along the Colorado River northeast to I–70. First passing through a high-walled corridor, the drive eventually breaks out into Professor Valley, home of the monoliths of Fisher Towers and Castle Rock, which you may recognize from various car commercials and old cowboy movies. The byway also passes the charred remnants of the single-lane Dewey Bridge, which was in use from 1916 to 1986 and was the second longest suspension bridge west of the Mississippi River when built. Unfortunately, most of it burned in 2008 during an accidental blaze. Near the end of the 44-mi drive is the tiny town of Cisco.
