This less-traveled alternative route out of Arches National Park undulates through dry desert scenery and descends to cross several sandy washes and gullies before joining US 191. There are rewarding views east into Arches National Park and distant views of the La Sal Mountains to the southeast. Special Attractions: One of the few 4WD trails in Arches National Park; Desert scenery and vegetation. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
