Hero: Miners Basin
small-sr Icon

This little gem sits just north of the summit of the La Sal Loop out of Moab and takes you up into the true alpine timber and snowpack of the La Sal mountains and to an old west mining ruin that includes an abandoned US Post Office and a small alpine lake. Excellent hiking and views are to be found along the way, and also a roadside overlanding campsite or two. There is some scree, so a 4x4 is ideal, but you'll make it in a 2WD under good conditions. There will be snow up here except in midsummer.
