Salt Valley Gorge Road is a maintained BLM road that leads from Highway 191 east towards the entire Yellow Cat area, known for its uranium mines from the uranium boom in the 1950s. This road gives you glimpses of the north side of Arches National Park, the La Sal Mountains, and Fisher Towers. Going through Little Valley and towards Yellow Cat Flats, you are treated with varying badland-type views of reddish and grey clay mountains and structures throughout the entire route. Avoid during wet soggy conditions due to clay mud.
