Don’t let the flatness of this straightaway on Shafer Trail fool you. Perhaps www.go-utah.com says it best as it describes this connection between the “main scenic drive atop the Island in the Sky mesa down to the White Rim Road. Shafer Trail Road is a wonderfully steep switchbacked fall down a cliff wall.” And if you look straight down this road to where it starts to climbs towards the cliff wall, you can see the gentle beginning (or end, depending on your direction) of those “wonderfully steep” switchbacks.
