  1. Default Route Suggestions - Bryce Canyon NP to Monument Valley

    Hi,

    We are driving through from Bryce Canyon NP to Monument Valley soon, but are torn between the two routes we could go (there could be more).

    Either . . . .

    Option 1 = Bryce - Kanab - Page - Kaynenta - MV
    OR
    Option 2 = Bryce - Escalante - Torrey - Hanksville - Mexican Hat - MV

    I know option 2 is longer but im told the drive is more scenic than option 1. Google Maps is listing it as just over 5 hours for option 1 and about 6 hours 15 mins for option 2.

    What does everyone think ? Do the travel times sound realistic ??

    Unfortunatly we have to drive it all in one day which is annoying.

    Thanks

    Fraser

    Default Both gorgeous -- but not in that time span!

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! Those are both nice routes. I think you have to decide how much time you want to spend on the road.

    The route 12 approach is stunning and here is a field report from part of it, but actual on the road (unless you never stop and look at anything) is probably closer to 9+ hours through central Utah. The route down US-89 to Kanab is also gorgeous and the roads are faster, but I really doubt you can cover that distance in less than 6.5 hours.

  3. Default Thanks - Just what I wanted

    Hi, thanks for the response, just what I was looking for.

    Unfortunatly, we have to cover that distance in a day, so I think we will go the quicker way. I dont want to be driving 9 + hours. We will be back again soon and will have alot more time to do Route 12 in detail then (i.e 3 - 4 days).

    Thanks
