Kane Creek Blvd. strikes out to the west off Moab’s Main Street from the south part of town center. It parallels the Colorado River along its southern bank, just as Potash Rd. does on the northern shore.
Both these byways are worthy of a planned excursion when spending time in the Moab area, with a greater variety of recreational options to be found along the latter (the trail to Corona Arch being one of the highlights).
A stop for a short hike at Moonflower Canyon makes the drive along the Colorado’s southern banks a worthy morning (or afternoon) endeavor – as do the several petroglyph panels that can be found both here and farther up the Kane Creek road.
Not to be overlooked are the simply magnificent views of towering sandstone cliffs across the river.
Just be aware that the short trail up Moonflower Canyon also serves the string of campsites situated there, and try not to awaken any late sleepers with your attempts to yodel your echo off the closed canyon walls.
