Is Muley Point Road suitable for a Class C?

We're thinking of including a day or so at Muley Point in this year's trip. Coming south from route 95, the road looks paved on Google Earth as far as the top of the Moki Dugway (which we aren't going to drive), then the rest shows as dirt to Muley Point. Would appreciate input from others who have been to Muley Point whether the road is suitable for a 24 ft Class C.

We are also considering driving through the Valley of the Gods and wondering whether that is a good idea for our Class C.

Thanks in advance.

Yes the road is suitable for a class C but watch your overhang. I have a 30 footer with a 12 foot overhang and in the Valley of the Gods parkway as well, it did a little scraping on a few of the not so level sections. Nothing to worry about. By the way here is a picture i took from my motor-glider of the Moki Dugway. I climbed it in the MH towing the glider on a trailer and launched the glider from the top of the dugway.

I came down this with my 27 ft. 5th wheel a few years back, not a good idea,
We also took the road down to San Jaun River off this 20 years back to pick up our raft from a trip we did down the river from Mex. Hat. I would not take my 29ft. motorhome down to the water on the gravel as I remember. Dust , rock, not for RV's unless set up for 4x4.
So big a world, so little time to see.

Thank you for your help.

The road is in shadow not missing. All the roads are in really great shape in the area from Monument Valley all the way to Bluff. That said I would not take a MH on Comb Ridge road or down through Monument Valley itself. Now let me try this picture sizing for myself.

I think that you're ready to start shopping for a 4WD toad.

Thanks, j-d & Ron,

From pictures I've seen on Google Earth and elsewhere Muley Point looks spectacular. The stars on a moonless night must be unbelievable, especially compared with what we can see here in NJ.

We expect to be there sometime in May.

We stayed at The Goosnecks SP a few years ago, and drove the Moki Dugway in the Jeep which was exciting. I felt that I could have carefully driven my MH up, but would be uncomfortable going down? We also drove out to Muley Point in the Jeep, which seemed to be passable in a larger vehicle. There were a few hard red rock spots and ruts to work around.

We camped beside a German couple at the Goosenecks, who later camped at Muley Point in their Unimog like vehicle. They had traveled from Alaska to the tip of South America and back over 10 years and when we ran into them later on our travels, they said that it was the best spot they had ever camped in.

The Valley of the Gods was easy, with a few ruts, and dry stream beds that could be a problem in wet weather.

We're going back this June.

You'll love it!

Can't help but looked it up and WOW! I can see where you'd want to visit there if you could. Found this in the utahscanyons.com page
"Extremely remote, Muley Point is located about 25 miles south of Natural Bridges Monument, accessible via a five-mile dirt and gravel road from SR-261. The road cuts through remote BLM lands until the turn-off just before Moki Dugway."
For five miles of gravel, after coming 2000 miles, I'd try it!
This question might get better play on the Roads and Routes or Public Lands Forums.
