• Head of the Rocks Overlook - Boulder, Utah

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Head of the Rocks Overlook provides quite spectacular views out over the slickrock of the Escalante Canyons and the narrow strip of blacktop - Utah Scenic Byway 12 - that winds its way across this dramatic scenery. This was one of the last areas of the USA to be mapped and you get a real sense of how remote and inhospitable it must have felt before the road was built.

      If you go:
      This is a well established overlook area with plenty of space for parking.
