Two Southern Utah Highways Voted Among Best Scenic Drives In America
Here in Utah, we know some incredible roads that will take you through some amazing landscape and provide stunning views. You probably have a list of roads you love for what they offer. The road through the Zion National Park tunnel is a favorite of mine and it’s hard to beat the drive through Cedar Breaks.
They have State Route 12 on the list. This highway runs from highway 89 below Panguitch, past Bryce Canyon and over to Escalante. It is an amazing drive with tunnels through the rocks, deep granite canyons, small towns and stunning views. I love this drive.
The second road on this list is much more adventurist because much of it is dirt. I have never heard of this drive, but it looks like it could be amazing, although dusty. It is the White Rim Road in Canyonlands National Park. This road winds through deep red rock canyons and over some pretty rugged terrain.
I’m sure the views are amazing, but I think driving through dust mile after mile could get tedious. I would like to take some time and drive it in a side by side and break up the trip over a few days. It would certainly be something to talk about later.
I think several more roads in Utah could be included. There are many through the northern mountains that are breathtaking. Still, I'm glad they picked one of my favorites and let me know about a new one.
