    Zion Mt Carmel Highway

    by goingsolo Written Jun 29, 2004

    Heading east out of Zion National Park towards Bryce Canyon National Park is the Zion Mount Carmel Highway. The highway is steep at some points and passes through a mile long dark tunnel, but is a pretty drive. There are several pullouts and trails that offer views of Zion Canyon and Checkerboard Mesa, shown in the photo.

    Scenic Byway 12

    by goingsolo Written Dec 13, 2004

    Highway 12 passes through and adjacent to some of Utah's greatest natural wonders. The west to east version of this route begins at Red Canyon before it heads past the turnoff from Bryce Canyon National Park. A few miles later, the road dips into a wide open valley before climbing back up for a view of a canyon. Winding and twisting its way past scenic vistas and small towns, highway 12 ascends Boulder Mountain first via a very narrow passage which allows for incredible views but little room for error, then cruising along the crest of the mountain for a sweeping view and, finally, descending sharply into the small town of Torrey where you can stop and look at the mountain your vehicle just climbed.

    This scenic byway has a National Park on either end and passes by the entrance to 3 very scenic state parks in addition to the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Its scenery galore from end to end of this 120 mile journey. Just make sure to stop and use the pullouts when you want to admire the view. This is especialy important if you are the driver of the vehicle.

    Utah can be reached by airplane at it's capitol Salt Lake City. We however started our drive along the National Parks (mainly in the Southern half of the state) from Phoenix-Scottsdale Arizona.
    By car we followed the green line on the map that I enclose for every future visitor.

    Road Trip

    by dlj8248 Written Jan 31, 2003

    Whether you opt to fly or drive to Utah, the best way to get around the red rock country is by car. There is so much to see and so many places to stop along the way. The roads are good and it is easy to get around. There are some areas only accessible with 4-wheel, high clearance vehicles, but most areas are fine for the family sedan.

    The same RV that brought us to 7 states without any trouble.
    The roads are good, but it was not allowed by the renting company to leave the paved roads.

    Fly into Salt Lake City. Rent a car so you can drive into the surrounding mountains. Ride the local light rail train within downtown.

    The best way to explore Utah is to do so by car. For me Utah was part of a car trip that I took in the southwest.
