Not a place that can be totally seen in one day, one week or perhaps ever. A large expanse of changing topography and beauty. Remote canyons, ridges, chasms, and features that provide hikers an endless challenge to find awesome natural features. At least drive Route 12 and enjoy the vistas.

This was our second trip down the scenic route 12 from Panguitch to Torrey. It was just as awe inspiring as last time. From the viewpoint look down on 1.9 million acres. The road you are about to travel lies far beneath you, then down you go. As you approach Torrey the road ascends to 10,000 ft with more magnificent... More

The Grand Staircase is unbelievable. The geology is unreal. The colors are stunning. The size of it is immense. Go see it.

Remote, awesome, one of the last vestiges of true trackless wilderness in the lower US. Beautiful, inspiring, scenic, southwest landscapes to be enjoyed by the adventurous individual. Slot canyons, vistas, peace, star field skies, quite, are all there to be experienced. The Grand staircase is not for the inexperienced traveler, but for one versed in desert back country hiking who... More

We didn't have time to spend a long time here, but we were told to at the very least drive through burr trail. Was absolutely stunning. Different terrain than what we had seen on the rest of our drive in Utah. So incredibly colorful!

We saw places a larger tour or individual walking wouldn,t see. Weather was nice, offered water, and walked on gentle ground,, took slots of pictures, Shawn... More

Gorgeous views await you in this relatively new national monument area. Notable recent dinosaur discoveries here - be sure to stop in at the Big Water Visitor Center (separate review) if you have a chance!

We rode our motorcycles through here. The terrain is very varied - through mountains, canyons, ridges and draws. Very colorful and scenic. There's so much too see even from the road and various pull-outs/view points. A 4x4 or off-road vehicle would let you explore even more. Our motorcycles were touring bikes not suited for gravel. Definitely a place worth coming... More

A town that time forgot! Fun little town to see! You can also stop by the Petrified Forest and the pretty lake there for lunch! Fees... More

Trying to find this place in the dark is one thing, and you would think the experience in the daylight would be much better, however, there is not much of an improvement. Beautiful drive however, you get to see some incredible scenery, but if you are looking for trail heads the roads are marked as well as you would think... More
