“route of 124 miles through diverse landscape”

Scenic Byway 12 spans a route of 124 miles, and travels through some of the most diverse, remote and ruggedly beautiful landscapes in the country. It runs through Utah’s Garfield and Wayne Counties and is home to Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef National Parks; Kodachrome Basin, Escalante Petrified Forest, and Anasazi Museum State Parks; Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and the 1.8-million-acre Dixie National Forest. Scenic Byway 12 has two entry points. The southwestern gateway is from U.S. Highway 89 (US 89), seven miles south of the city of Panguitch. The northeastern gateway is from Highway 24 in the town of Torrey near Capitol Reef National Park.

Between Highway 12 and Highway 24, Southern Utah has some of the most beautiful drives I've ever had the joy of making. Highway 12 is known as "Devil's Backbone," and takes you through some rugged and breathtaking territory along Grand Staircase-Escalante on the way to Bryce and Zion. The scenery is amazing, and thankfully there are plenty of pull-offs to snap a picture or 50.

Super disappointed. The road in (West. 24) had better views. No facilities along this road at all, no bathrooms.

Add an extra 2 hours to your agenda and take this drive. There are so many beautiful views. Plan for lunch at Hells Backbone Grill.
