I drive thru this road every single year and the reason I go thru here is because the beauty is mesmerizing. Unless you are in Blading or Hanksville there are no hotel, no gas station or convenience store. There was a small gas station in Hite but because of the low lake levels is now close. Radio station, cellular reception... More

One of the most scenic and relaxing drives I have ever done! Driving to Blanding and up where they chiseled the high way into the cliff was so worth it! Ruins are accessible from the road.

Highway 95 is a great road to take in southern Utah. Depending on your stopping for pictures, you could spend a few hours or days along the route. The route is relatively easy to drive, with minimal traffic, even for our summer vacation. There is are not many services along the road, so be prepared for any contingencies.

We took this route hoping to see a lot of desert formations. Being from Michigan, everything about the desert was new to us. I knew the "desert like on Roadrunner" was out there, and here it is!

We spent several days in this area visiting various sites and camping overnight on BLM land. If you love nature, this is the place to spend considerable time.

We have driven this route many times, en-route to Natural Bridges Monument, Cedar Mesa, Capitol Reef NP, the Escalante and many other attractions in SE Utah. It is one of the least traveled and most scenic routes in the US. Even if you travel this way to get to "somewhere" or a local attraction, it is well worth your while... More

Beautiful red rock canyon with some interesting history. It also has a great rest/picnic area halfway through.

Very scenic and interesting drive from Blanding to Natural Bridges National Monument. I drove this route in the dark in order to get to the Bridges for sunrise photos so did not see much scenery. However on the return leg I really enjoyed this route and saw many deer, turkeys and rabbits.

While we didn’t drive the entire UT Route 95, the portion we did take was breathtaking. During our journey, we found Hog Springs, which is a BLM picnic and hiking area on the highway. There is an overlook west of the Colorado River that is well-worth the pull-off. The views are beautiful. This is a beautiful drive in the Glen... More

This quiet yet excellent road leads to all sorts of things I hadn't planned to visit in Utah. If I'd have known about it I would have allowed an extra day or two. But I enjoyed what I got to do--Hog Springs, Natural Bridges NM, and Newspaper Rock. The little towns weren't too inviting. I did get good and healthy... More
