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!

What a fantastic stretch of road. The views almost wanted you to wish the trip would not end. I would recommend driving from north to south as it is almost downhill all the way. The road itself are being worked on at the moment (August 2013) so a lot of loose gravel but the views absolutely make up for it.... More

along with Hwy 12, some of the most scenic driving in the entire US. Every turn reveals a new vista or canyon or geologic formation.

The only reason we swung by Blanding UT and were on UT-95 was to photograph one special place. You won't find it on most maps and even if you do it won't mean much to you. This place is officially Mule Canyon that is just off UT-95 about 10-20 miles West of US-191. Mule Canyon in it's own right is... More

Utah has no shortage of scenic routes, and this sure is one of them. It is a fairly well frequented route since it is the one place between Navajo Bridge at the top end of the Grand Canyon and Page at Glen Dam on the one side, and Moab on the other side where you can drive your car across... More
