Overview

Potash Road is striking, with scenic natural, and unnatural personalities introducing themselves to you as you drive and explore the trail. Intricate canyons and hoodoos captivate you on the western end, followed by the Colorado River in the middle that begs you to pull a chair out and sit and stare at it all day. Then you reach the alien-post-apocalyptic landscape of the potash mines, asking yourself, "where on Earth am I, and what the heck is potash?" Combine all that with the stimulating Schafer Trail, and you have a great beginner's offroad adventure into Canyon Country.
