Description

The Bicentennial Scenic Byway, or Utah Highway 95, is a 133-mile high-desert drive across some of Utah's most rugged canyon country. The drive is well paved and open year round, and traffic is generally light in this sparsely populated area.

High points of the drive included the spectacular views of the Henry Mountains, Glen Canyon crossing, Natural Bridges National Monument, and various Anasazi dwellings.

This drive can be done in half a day, with few stops and just a quick breeze through Natural Bridges. Plan on a full day if you wish to do a hike in Natural Bridges and poke around some of the Anasazi ruins between Hanksville and Blanding.
