Scenic drive Hatch to Moab

Guys,

My own research has concluded that this route looks the most scenic and can be done in a day....travelling next month.

Hatch Highway 12 through tropic and Escalante, continue along 12 through boulder, through Dixie Nat forest up to capitol reef country scenic byway (24) all the way to hanksville. Carry on using 24 upto 70 and onto highway 191into Moab.

I know this is a long journey in excess of 8 hours. That’s no problem.

My question is, does this sound like the best route or does anyone else have any better ideas.

Thank you

Absolutely the best, most scenic route is the one you picked! It's a shame your not taking time to explore some of interesting places you'll pass.

Yes, that is the scenic route. It will be a long day. For the best experience and to be able to enjoy Scenic

Byway Highway 12, an overnight in Torrey Utah is advisable.
