Great pics! So the wife and I are taking the TH to Moab in a few weeks and are considering a few of the "easy trails" for some nice views. What are your thoughts on Potash Road to Shafer Pass/trail without rock rails?
Very, very doable. Climbing up off of the shoreline of the Colorado River there are a few minor rough spots, but nothing to be concerned about. Just a couple of washboard-like bumps. The TH will handle it "blindfolded."
There are a couple of "shelf" sections that if you are fearful of heights, you will want to keep your eyes on the road, as they say, and don't let them wander. But again, nothing too bad as far as the road itself goes. Along this elevated section are some fantastic views of the Colorado River.
You will not need rock rails for the road section you describe. And, you may not even need 4Lo necessarily....just saying. Its not a bad section; but extremely scenic.
Also, the climb up the Shafer Trail is a good climb. You will be gaining several hundred feet. But it is not bad...just avoid any knuckle heads trying to bring a motorhome down it as you go up (happened to me once
