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.
