Did this drive 4/4/2018. Temperature was a perfect 60 degrees. Awesome views, cool rock formations, weird geologic features, boulders the size of houses, animals (lizards, various birds of prey), this trip has it all. We even stopped the car and did some hiking. Awesome. True testament: my pre-teen wasn't bored.

My wife and I have traveled to many beautiful places on this Earth, and the scenery along this route is second to none. It along gives you the chance to see where live is a bit more peaceful in the towns along the way. This less than 200 mile drive deserves at least three days to enjoy, and more days if you are able.

We had no idea the scenic beauty we’d encounter at every turn on this incredibly scenic highway!! Grand views, sections right on the rim of mountain ridges, and variety of ecosystems and geology. A must do drive!

We traveled from Bryce Canyon National Park to Arches National Park in March 2018. GPS recommended a different route, but locals recommended the Scenic 12 route. It was breath taking. It is slow and curvy but worth every minute. We were saying "WOW" every time we turned a corner. Our 16 year old grand daughter was with us and could not believe her eyes.

This was one of the many beautiful drives that we encountered in southern Utah. We were thrown off by no pay station in Capitol Reef along this road, so we weren't sure if we had entered the park. HWY 12 took us straight through the national park through gorgeous landscapes and views! So much to see and explore. We also went back at night to one if the turn-offs from the hwy to enjoy the dark sky and stars. It was an amazing drive.
