One of the more unexpected things one sees in central Utah is the Dixie National Forest along highway 12. When you think of Utah, you think red rocks, hoodoos, and arches. But here in the middle of all that, between Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument...More

It offers an outhouse, some history and great views! It is a nice place to stretch and rest. You see the vistas you have been driving through and can take time to admire them!

Along UT-12, this scenic pull off offers visitors some amazing sites of the nearby Henry Mountains, Navajo Peak and the Waterpocket Fold. Temperatures can be much cooler up there - so plan for a jacket or rain coat.

We stopped at this overlook on the way to Bryce Canyon after we visited Capitol Reef on along route 12. Even if you have only a few minutes, don't miss this stop and viewpoint in the Capitol Reef National Park in Utah.
