Lots to see in this area. Goosenecks State Park and Canyonlands are very close. Monument Valley is approx. 45 mi. from here and Natural Bridges National Monument is approx. 24mi. away.
Good points:
An unexpected thrill and a great viewpoint. Much better road than I expected. Well worth getting your nerve up to do.
Bad points:
Terrifying if you are afraid of heights but no fun unless you drive it yourself. Or are a passenger, anyway.
Self driving is the best way to get around this area.
This unique 3 mile dugway (a road that is carved from a hillside) was built by the Texas Zinc mining co. in 1958. Constructed primarily to transport uranium ore from the Happy Jack Mine in Fry Canyon, UT to a processing facility in nearby Mexican Hat. The road is a series of tight switchbacks, an 11º grade and drops over 1,000 feet in 2 miles.
