There was some fresh oil in parts but overall an excellent road to travel, very scenic. We picked up 95 right outside Blanding and went through national bridges and across lake Powell.

Easy drive, no spectacular things to see. Traveled from Natural Bridges to Blanding. Better than the "Moki Dugway", which we drove to get to Natural Bridges.

This is an easy hike well worth your effort. House on Fire is one of those hidden, but not remote ruins.....a true gem! We had seen professional photographer photos of this, not knowing where it was and discovered it on our visit to the Bluff and Blanding Utah area. The visitor center in Blanding will give directions to the site.... More

The drive along 95 from Blanding, UT is so spectacular that words cannot possibly describe all hidden places and its real feast for your eyes. Views from the paved road are already spectacular but one needs to stop in marked trailheads, take short or longer walks to ancient sites, enjoy more views from paths or trails. Then a short side...

There is SO much to see RIGHT off this highway, but you prolly need a guidebook. You can see a dozen amazing archaeological/cultural/natural resources less than 15 minutes easy walk from the highway. Stop in the Blanding Visitor's Center & they'll tell about WAY more interesting things to see than you have time for. If you've driven it before without... More

This part of Utah is spectacular, driving is easy and not crowded. I feel you have to get out and hike, to really appreciate what you see from the car..but if all you have time for IS the drive, 95 is a great road full of wonderful sites, and small towns...very small . DON'T forget to make the side trips... More

Words just don't describe this road. We drove from Blanding UT north - sun was perfectly displaying the sights. What makes it special - besides the beauty - each few miles changes. The rock beauty does not get boring - it is changing before your eyes. Seriously - this road should be on everyone's bucket list - it is that... More

Nice BLM campground in Comb Wash just as you come through the gap in Comb Ridge and down the hill into Comb Wash. Good centralized place to see the nearby ancient sites. Pit toilets are available for these dispersed sites. No water though, and the road is treacherous if wet. Well worth a look if you enjoy desert boondocking.

We were here to visit mule canyon specifically House on fire. We had to drive through the route since we had difficulty locating the Canyon. But the drive was not at all frustrating, the scenic drive was wonderful.

We received a recommendation from the Innkeeper in Escalante that we should take this drive and we are glad we did! Incredible vistas and landscape are found all along the lower half of the road. We stopped and took many photos along the way. Be sure to plan enough time to enjoy!
