    Potash Rd and More
    Kevin Walker, our tour guide, took us on the Potash Rd around the Potash ponds and on around into Canyonlands til there was snow on the road. Beautiful sights everywhere we looked. Kevin was so patient to let us stop and take photos. Highly recommend the tour and Kevin as your guide.

    Nice drive
    Taking a drive along Potash Road is beautiful and scenic with the Colorado River flowing along one side and walls of stone along the other. It is a popular site for rock climbing and repelling. A must see is the petroglyph panels.

    Pleasant, scenic, interesting drive
    The problem with Moab is that Arches is such an off the charts experience that everything else pales a bit by comparison. We enjoyed driving down Potash Raod, taking in the views, and seeing the petroglyphs. We made it all the way down to the potash facility at the end. When you've done a couple of days at Arches and Dead Horse Point, this should be next on your list.

    Very cool drive, lot to see!
    Very cool drive and worth the time if you have it! Went with my dad and 6yo son. Went straight to the trail head and found the petroglyphs and dinosaur prints. A few helpful signs that explain what you're seeing. Also petroglyphs along the road on a huge cliff which are marked as well. We loved it and would recommend for sure!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was an absolutely beautiful drive to the back entrance of Canyonlands. On your journey out the Colorado River winds gently on your left while the canyon walls on your right make you feel as small as we truly are. Don't forget to stop and few the petroglyphs on your way... they are remarkable.

A fine place to see petroglyphs without having to hike. It takes a while to spot them, but once you find them they are very clear.

We came down the Shaefer road from Canyonlands NP and continued on the Potash road. A bit of a bone jaring experience but it was a great adventure. I would advise against taking a sedan on this road. High clearance 4x4 would be the recommended vehicle

This was a driving outing for us after hiking in the morning. We went all the way to the end of the paved road at the potash mine location. There is a bit of information about the mine and two memorials to miners who died in accidents. It's a beautiful drive the entire way. The petroglyphs are on the high rocks opposite a turn out. Watch for the sign that says "petroglyphs".
