Moki Dugway

Moki Dugway on Scenic Byway 261

The term moki (also mokee) is deried from the Spanish word, moqui, a general term used by explorers in this region to describe Pueblo Indians they encounterd as well as the vanished Ancestral Puebloan culture.  Dugway is a term used to describe a roadway carved from a hillside.

Outstanding scenic panoramas may be viewed from Muley Point (the back road to Mulely Point is visible on the map, at the top of Moki Dugway), we include two photos from the Point in the gallery.  Raplee Ridge is on the lower right of the map, and Goosenecks State Park is just west of US163/U261.  U316 to the park is not on this map, but is on the map in our article about Goosenecks State Park.  Nearby are Natural Bridges National Monument, Ancestral Pueobloan ruins throughout Cedar Mesa, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Comb Ridge moncline, the Cockscomb monocline, Waterpocket Fold (Capitol Reef) monocline, scenic vistas, scenic byways, canyons, geologic formations, and primitive and wilderness areas.
