Potash Road Drive Professional Review and Guide

"Dinosaur tracks, American Indian rock-art sites and an arch (Jug Handle) on S.R. 279. Watch for the signs. The scenery from the terraces and benches high above the Colorado River is outstanding. The Shafer Trail switchbacks always thrill. Go in spring or fall.

The road climbs above the river onto a bench below towering sandstone cliffs, buttes and mesas. Ahead is 5,715-foot Pyramid Butte. At mile 3.1 follow a fence line at Moab Salt Production & Packaging’s evaporation ponds. When you reach mile 5.3 drive through a gate, and in a half mile [N38°28.329' W109°41.846'] you will see a spur going left to Pyramid Butte. It goes around the butte to a spectacular bench high above the river."
