Description

Highway 12 is one of the most spectacular scenic byways in the country. It begins at Hwy 24 near Torrey and runs south and west for 122 miles to Hwy. 89 south of Panguitch. The early section of the route climbs up the side of the heavily forested Boulder Mountains with some nice views east over Capitol Reef and the Henry Mountains. Past the town of Boulder, the route enters the Grand Staircase and passes through very rugged and often spectacular red rock scenery as it heads west towards Bryce Canyon National Park. Areas before Bryce Canyon are very scenic (as, of course, is the main scenic route through Bryce Canyon) but the route becomes relatively ordinary west of Bryce Canyon.
