Moki Dugway

While we were in Monument Valley a couple of weeks ago we decided to check out Moki Dugway. Because it was so close I wanted to see it for myself. Very scenic drive, we drove up from Mexican Hat on 261, turned around at the top and came back down. There were several people on 261 with the same idea as us that day.

If you're ever in the area it's definately whole the trip.

11 months ago we did both of those sites but, from the North(top). We base camped in Blanding with the Adventurer and traveled both North and South from there in our Suzi GV. True there is some washboard going out to Muley Point and some in Valley of the Gods but both sites are worth a visit as is The Goose Necks, also up on top.

I was a little disappointed in that the dugway is really a road and not a dugway. Anyone know where there is a true dugway in the West or Southwest?

We did see one truck and boat w/trailer coming up from the valley and a semi going down w/ one 20' box. I would not pull going up.

Also if you camp up on top, drive up to the CofC Visitors center in Monticello. The road immediately north of the center is a beautiful drive up to about(IIRC) about 9k feet and then down into the Needles section of Canyonlands NP. The visitors center is a great place to get info on the whole area.

According to the signs they don't allow trailers or RVs on the Dugway. We took our pick up truck. We did see a lot of cars on there too though. It was a bright sunny day and dry so it really was a piece of cake. The views were great! We stopped several times to take pictures.

The Dugway is wide enough to be comfortable with an RV, however the two times I drove it without the trailer it was washboarded enough that I'm glad I left it behind.

By the way, if you do get to the top of the Dugway, be sure to take the Muley Point Road to the end. Another often washboarded road, but the view at the end is wonderful.

We are going to be in that area in a month or so.
Is the road to Bullfrog paved? That I think is Utah 276
