Took a day trip out to Canyonlands and Dead Horse State Park. We were told by one of the locals that we MUST drive on Schafer Trail.. We were both up for the challenge, so we did!
It is a dirt 1-1/2 lane road that scales the cliff down to the valley. We would also suggest going to the horseshoe overlook, then turn around & go back up.
We would both highly recommend this trip if you are NOT afraid of heights. However, we would also suggest turning around at the bottom somewhere and going back up.. We stopped at a beautiful overlook to the horseshoe part of the Colorado/Green River. That's where we should have turned around. We didn't, and ended up finally finishing the off-road bumpy road 5 hours later. however, we did get a LOT of beautiful photos!
