Moab, Utah provides a charming vacation destination for visitors to enjoy no matter what time of year you arrive. This vibrant locale is brimming over with flavorful options as well as boutique stores, amazing views and access to some of the most intriguing outdoor adventures imaginable. While Moab proper is sure to inspire, there’s nothing quite like planning a mountain adventure while you’re here. If you’re looking to make the most of a stunning drive complete with stops along the way to explore, La Sal Mountain Loop is your best bet.
A Drive Filled with Excitement and Scenery
Those visitors looking for incredible vistas earned through elevation changes and winding roads will quickly fall in love with the La Sal Mountain Loop experience. The road can be accessed by taking Highway 191 south of Moab until you see signs for both Ken’s Lake and La Sal Mountain Loop road. While many will choose to stop and enjoy some lake time before continuing on, those who are eager for sky-high sights will want to be on their way. As drivers continue their journey on La Sal Loop road, elevation increases and the terrain visibly changes. Keep your eyes peeled for the collection of stunning plateaus that come into view and make sure to admire the mountain forests that begin to appear. Continuing on, those driving the La Sal Mountain Loop will be privy to views that extend to the Moab Valley as well as Canyonlands National Park, both worth of photos and a bit of time to simply admire.
What to Enjoy Along the Way on the La Sal Loop
While La Sal Mountain Loop can simply be experienced by vehicle, there are plenty of options for combining activities along the way. 15 miles up the route, there’s an option to pull over at the Mill Creek Recreation Area and enjoy some time having a picnic or hiking the trails. Oowah Lake is only half a mile further down the road and is an ideal spot to enjoy fishing if you have the time. Two miles further and drivers can pull over at Warner Lake and Campground to enjoy time admiring the water and taking photos. In total, the La Sal Mountain Loop covers about 60.7 miles of ground and drivers can expect to dedicate at least two hours to the adventure if you plan on completing the entire loop.
