Truly breath taking drive from Bryce to Capitol Reef. Fantastic panoramic views! Drive slow, pay attention, there is no belief in guard rails here (just like many European mountain roads), not a place to drink or text, if you go off in some places you'll...More
I read about this drive, and told my husband we needed to take this route to get from Capitol Reef to Bryce Canyon. It was worth the extra half hour it added to the drive. I cannot stress enough how spectacular this drive is. The...More
Ranked as one of the top 15 Motorcycle rides in the US - I agree. Lots of curves, elevation changes and great views. Plenty of turnouts and the road is in good condition.
Rode September 10th, very little traffic except by the entrance to Bryce...More
Didn't realise this was a scenic road as it was just on our route but it has stunning views for miles and miles. If you are travelling this way try and fit in a drive on this road, you won't be disappointed.
We took highway 12 between Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef. What an incredible drive. There is so much to see around every corner, and check out hikes along the way if you have time. Stopped for lunch in Escalante along the way. Add this route...More
This highway is right up there at the top of our list for motorcycle adrenaline junkies and has fab scenery to boot. Be sure to stop for your caffeine fix at the KivaKoffeeHouse. You need to relax your throttle & clutch hands. It's a big,...More
We drove the scenic 24 HWY from Moab Utah to Torrey, UT in one day (about 3 hours), then stayed the night in Torrey near Capital Reef and then drove the hwy 12 from Torrey to Bryce Canyon the next day (about 3 hours.) It...More
This scenic byway is a must see if traveling through Utah! We stayed in Capitol Reef and began our drive on Hichway 12 at sunrise. The drive was spectacular! We bought a little book at Capitol Reef Ntl Park on this scenic byway which included...More
The highway offers a breathtaking tour of the area. It has generous pull off areas which we took advantage of. Make sure you have time to take in the sights. Don't volunteer to be the driver when taking this part of tour.

It's about a 2 hour drive from Torrey to Bryce Canyon. You drive through some very picturesque areas and also some small towns, VERY SMALL TOWNS. Speed limits are reduced through these small areas. Amenities are limited so be sure to have water and snacks on hand in your car. I also advise to refuel at 1/2 tank of gas. We drove through areas in Utah where we didn't see a gas station for 90 miles. The Bryce area can be very congested. We were there in April and experienced some minor traffic. I imagine that during peak season you should be prepared for big traffic.

Should be fine, get a convertible. What a view! In October much of the State is shutting down between summer and ski season. Just be aware many restaurants, park lodges, etc. take some time off starting in late Oct.
