Moki Dugway on Utah Route 261

The Moki Dugway (also called Mokee or Moqui) is a famous (or infamous) stretch of Utah Route 261 – the highway running north/south that bisects Cedar Mesa. The Moki Dugway is a 3-mile section of gravel road featuring 10% grades climbing through steep hairpin switchbacks straight up the thousand-foot cliff walls of Cedar Mesa. The road tops Cedar Mesa at about 6,400 ft elevation after beginning its climb from the desert at 5,400 ft.
