Jughandle Arch Loop starts at the Jughandle Arch off Hwy. 279 along the Colorado River. It winds into Canyonlands National Park on Shafer Trail Road and up a terrific series of switchbacks (1,200' climb) to the park's main scenic drive (Hwy. 313). Your return includes a nice descent through Long Canyon. The route has 9 miles of paved road and 29 miles of 4wd roads.
