Start your route in Moab, UT and head south on Utah State Route 191 for about 23 miles and you will come to the town of La Sal, UT (really just a school building and gas stop) and at this point you need to get on State Road 46 and head east toward Colorado. This road turns into Colorado State Road 90 when it crosses into Colorado. You take this all the way into Nucla Colorado.
Great views of the La Sals, big valleys, farm country, and desert - all on one road. The road follows a stream along the edge of Mt. Peale - elevation 12,721.
Just a little two lane starting 22 miles south of Moab. Look for significant twisties in the middle and long straights deeper in Colorado. This road sneaks up on you because the first few miles are extremely mundane - don't be deceived - the middle section is losing tons of elevation and following the path of the river through the La Sals.
Get gas in Moab - next stop Nucla or Naturita. About 85 miles. The route also passes through the Manti-La Sal National Forest.
