Oh my, this road is pretty rough and all of the ups and downs are not good if you are traveling in a 4 wheel drive, it is not much fun. I would have been scared to death to be pulling our RV behind us. There should be signs up stating the road is rough!

It is one of those less traveled Scenic Byways that we knew little about. We drove from Monument Valley to Torrey, Utah on the state route 95. The road was well kept and we saw few cars throughout the whole trip. Yes, the Hite Overlook was a must stop. However, just about mile northwest of the Hite Overlook along route... More

This drive was very scenic and the road is in great condition. We were towing a 27-foot trailer and never had any issues.

Knew it would be scenic but just a big WOW! We made a lot of stops and took a lot of pics. Around every turn its another "Oh Wow!" The colors, the formations, plan a lot of time to soak it all in. Well worth the time and effort to drive this road!

Hwy 95, or The Bicentennial Hwy., forms part of the Trail of the Ancients National Scenic Byway. it is 121 mi. long with no towns between Hanksville and Blanding, UT. The terrain on this drive changes over the course of the road. The northern 10 mi. are not very interesting and neither is the southern 10 miles, but the miles... More

Wow, I completely did NOT expect such an incredibly beautiful drive! Red rock canyons, amazing vistas, truly spectacular most of the way btwn Blanding and Hanksville (well, until you get within about 10-15 miles of Hanksville, to be honest.) One of the highlights of our recent trip to that area.

We left Bryce Canyon heading East via Highway 12 and 95 eventually stopping in Blanding. Give yourself a full day as you will probably want to stop at multiple places and take in the spectacular and varied landscapes you'll encounter. Amazing rock formations and deep canyons appear out of nowhere. Mountain ranges and one pass at over 9000'.

See what all the hullabaloo is about. Wonderfully preserved already because the locals respect the land. See if you can spot the SADDLE rock formation on the north side of the road between mile markers 108 and 110.

Every twist and turn brought more spectacular views..vistas of all hues of rocks, bluffs, canyons,often with snowy mountains in background.Very little traffic..we counted 4 cars on one 50 mile stretch, so we're able to slow/ stop/ take photos/ walk around etc without traffic problems

Stunning scenery all along the highway and very quiet on the road too! Stop at Hite Overlook for a view of the Colorado River and valley below, absolutely breathtaking in scale!
