  • The Cathedral Valley is uncrowded and very spectacular. You should do the tour only with the SUV, high ground clearance must be, all-wheel drive is recommended. You can ride the whole round, starting with the river Ford, the Ford over the Fremont River. We had done this before a few years ago, when the water level was low. This time he was too high and the water seemed too intoxicating. So we drove out of Caineville Cathedral Valley up to the upper South desert overlook and then back and the Baker Ranch Road, which leads to the I70. We are broken up early and were able to Temple of the Sun, and Temple of the Moon in the rising sun see. Also the area of the cathedrals and the upper over looks nice. The Baker Ranch Road is a good shortcut if you want to then continue along the I70. It is also very interesting and usually good to go. But you should have a GPS track, because you can easily lose in byways.

  • Way remote...great views...not a busy area which is the way I like it. Suggest 4wd and good clearance. My Forester with 8" did fine.
