  • Definitely worth the ride if it's even remotely in the options of a way to get from point A to B.. Very diverse landscapes and scenery with options for pull offs of views or hikes, 4x4 or ATV options ...  more »
  • THE famous SCENIC 12 of the UTAH to go to Moab, from Bryce City, we took the famous scenic Utah 12. During our research for the preparation of this road trip we had read several times that she was considered as one of the most beautiful roads of the USA. This isn't sure coating (which is, moreover, in very good condition), but rather of the landscapes! And what landscapes! Yes, we are in complete agreement, it was beautiful, and yet the weather was not at the top, so I imagine under the Sun! In fact, around Bryce Canyon and down on the Page, the region is full of beautiful places and deserves that we stayed there much longer, next time maybe... This time in so we had only a few straps through the scenic 12. Info: We highly recommend that you take this road which is really superb, but we think that it is better to take it in the other direction, i.e. from East to the West (in our case of Moab) (so in the direction of) Bryce). Indeed we chose to make our journey to kind of be at Bryce Canyon "at the earliest", because the climate is rigorous fast and at this time of the year (September), 2 weeks of discrepancies it counts as winter and the cold, it's really not our Fort! But rolling in the direction West - East as we did, we were able to admire the landscapes to the son of the sure kilometers but there was little opportunity to take beautiful pictures because most of the tunes of parking was provided on the other side of the Road. So if you have a choice, do not like us, take the 12 scenic in the East-West direction, enjoy it more, and we wish you the Sun as a bonus!
