Moki Dugway Pass - Scariest Road in Utah?

Moki Dugway Pass is a three-mile-long switchback gravel road that is carved right into the side of Cedar Mesa with an elevation gain of 1200 feet and a 10% grade. The gravel road has no guardrails, steep, with many switch backs. I didn't find it too nerve-wracking, but it probably isn't for the faint of heart or for those that might be afraid of heights. It is considered the most dangerous road in Utah.

The views while you climb the pass are simply breathtaking! You can see the amazing Valley of the Gods, great view of the San Juan River Canyon, and see Monument Valley off in the distance.

The road was built 1958 to haul mined materials from Fry Canyon to a processing mill in Mexican Hat. The road is no longer used for this purpose, but it definitely is still being used by tourists.
