Two miles north of Moab.
In addition to beautiful scenery, this byway serves as a connecting route for motorists going to or from Moab and the nearby national parks.
Located just three miles from Moab, Grandstaff Canyon may be explored via a two-mile long hiking trail that leads to Morning Glory Natural Bridge (allow four hours for this side trip). About four miles from Grandstaff Canyon, the byway passes the Big Bend Campground and picnic area with its white sand beach. The next section of the road closely parallels the Colorado River.
This 44-mile long byway (one way) may be enjoyed in a little over an hour.
