If you're not in a super hurry, this is a great drive. There are many places to stop along the way if you are interested in photography, hiking, ancient ruin sites... The only challenge is there is no shoulder on most of the road, so you can't always pull over when you want. There are several sites with parking if... More

We went along this route to go through Capitol Reef National Park and back to Salt Lake City. It is beautiful, but a long drive. We stopped at the Colorado River for a time.

Start of the road out of Blanding looked like we were heading into a desolate area. Weeds grew on the road's edge and there were lots of warnings about deer being hit by autos. Sure enough, we saw two deer that had been hit, and one that crossed the road in front of us. Many stops for pictures along the... More

Gorgeous highway! It starts in Hanskville, UT and travels all the way to Blanding, UT. I may be adding a little bit of Hwy 12 into my memory because I was driving from Cedar City, but you pass over gorgeous areas nonetheless! The Colorado River Bridge crossing was so cool. Make sure you stop at the store in the rock... More

We drove from the Natural Bridges National Park to Blanding and yes this road is very pretty, but there's not much going on... I prefer the iconic road from Mexican Hat to Monument Valley, as it's simply outstanding. I would not go out of the way for this road, though would to go walk some of the nearby trails.

One of the most scenic drives in the world! Be sure to keep your camera handy throughout the entire trip! Beautiful is not descriptive enough! Not for the faint of heart or those scared of heights, but worth sucking it up for! Amazing!

Great drive between Blanding and Natural Bridges National Monument. Several places to stop and see Pueblo ruins. Windy narrow road in places with lots of curves and steep slopes. Bring food and water and fill the gas tank before heading this way.

Very beautiful ride - we did it on our motorcycles. When you drive through the Glen Canyon area it is very impressive and scenic. The area is very remote and there's no cellular access and few conveniences. Gas up in Blanding or Hanksville. Definitely a bucket list drive.

There is a lifetimes worth of stuff to do along this route if you just get off the and go explore. Went canyoneering for the first time in Duckett canyon and would highly recommend 4 corners adventures to show you how its done. Stayed in the BLM campground in Comb wash right oft the highway and had the most spectacular... More
