Utah Highway 12 Scenic Byway: Section 2 - Escalante to Torrey Professional Review and Guide

"This is fifty-seven miles of the most spectacular desert and mountain wilderness in the entire state. This is the second installment of the 120-mile drive on perhaps the most scenic highway in the nation, UT 12. We are now deep in the heart of slickrock country, in a part of Garfield County that still looks like a wilderness. Until just twenty years ago, the drive on UT 12 from Escalante to Boulder and the alpine drive across Boulder Mountain was a journey into one of the most remote places in the entire country.

Special attractions: Slickrock country of the Escalante River, Calf Creek Falls, Anasazi Indian Village State Park, Boulder Mountain, and Capitol Reef and Henry Mountain views. Nearby attractions: Escalante backcountry hikes and drives, Hole-in-the-Rock Scenic Backway, Hell’s Backbone Ridge, and Burr Trail Scenic Backway. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
