Cache Valley Road Professional Review and Guide

"This short spur trail is an enjoyable side trip to a day in Arches National Park. It leaves from the end of the paved road to Delicate Arch and descends to Cache Valley Wash running along Cache Valley. It runs along the wash, crossing it frequently. The trail then turns to the south and climbs toward Dry Mesa. This route finishes on a ridge with a great view back along Cache Valley to Arches National Park. The trail does continue up onto the mesa, but it is very steep and because it is so difficult, it is well beyond the scope of this book.

Special Attractions: Views along the wide Cache Valley; View of Delicate Arch; Interesting side trail to add to a day in Arches National Park. 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."
