Utah’s State Route 12 is a “National Scenic Byway” recognized by the U.S. Department of Transportation. It also has the designation of being an All-American Road, one of just 120 so named nationwide, which means it possesses unique features and intrinsic qualities not found elsewhere. All American Roads are destinations unto themselves. Route 12 and its extensions run through two national parks, a national monument, three state parks, and a national forest. The total distance is approximately 225 miles.
