  • Beautiful Scenery Start to Finish. From the Red Canyon to the HogBack and over the Boulder Mpuntain, we drove Route 12 from end to end and enjoyed the beauty of Utah.

  • Scenic Byway 12 is an amazing drive. We took it going from Moab to Bryce canyon. It goes through beautiful red canyons to high mountains. The mountains have many aspen groves, and is over 8,000 feet up. Camping and hiking areas throughout.
  • Gorgeous views from this beautiful road. There was very light traffic when we came. Worth the extra time for the scenic views. Plenty of places to stop and take photos.
  • Love how Scenic Byway 12's two "mini" tunnels provide excitement of what lies ahead in Zion National Park. Wonderful views from this beautiful road, especially in winter.
  • Drove the entire length of Scenic Byway 12 and loved it. Beautiful, varied views all along the way. There are several viewpoints and pit toilets along the route.
  • Just an amazing scenic drive. A few towns along the way with some great restaurants. Plenty of places to pull off the road safely and view scenic views. The diversity of rock and geology is unique.
