What an absolutely amazing drive! Twisting, turning and changing but always beautiful scenery and a great view of the Colorado River and Fremont confluence. Up the mountain, down the mountain. From moon-like sandstone domes to deep red canyons, it's one amazing view after another. Drive...More

Miles and miles of unexpected formations and a rainbow of colors. . . from desolate grays with no trace of vegetation to gorgeous reds and greens with lush valleys. A MUST FOR EVERY AMERICAN

There are few towns in this area. Hanksville and Blanding are the only ones we saw that had food or gas stations. The scenery varies, but is always beautiful. Natural Bridges National Monument is along this stretch. Worth seeing if you have the time. Open...More

This is a fantastic drive through Bears Ears NM, White Canyon and Glen Canyon National Recreation area. Canyons, towering bluffs, rivers, and bridges. We saw a massive heard of bighorn sheep. Go out of your way to take this drive!

Utah State Route 95 from Blanding to Hanksville will take you through the most beautiful scenery you will find anywhere. This is what people come to Utah to see.

Utah State Route 95 was stunning. Unbelievably beautiful colors. They just kept coming. I would almost rank it above the incredible sights at the national parks (Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands).

Nice smooth roads with lots to look at. The landscape is ever-changing in Utah, so if you don't like what you're seeing, keep driving! Not many places to go potty or eat here, so plan ahead.
