    Default More questions than answers.

    Hello Debbie, welcome to the RTA forums !

    How long have you got ? Have you a route in mind ? What are your interests ?

    Zion and Bryce canyon would be a couple of obvious choices, but you could also head towards Moab and Arches and Canyonlands and then up past Dinosaur NM and Flaming Gorge res and through the Teton's, or over to Salt lake City. There are many options so you need to make a start to find what appeals to you.

    Have a look around the forums with a good map to hand and when you have answered some of the basics for yourself we can help to fill in any gaps.

    I don't know how much time you have for this trip, but I'll give you two possible routes with all the places to see.

    Route 1 options:

    Page, AZ/Lake Powell/Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. Upper Antelope Slot Canyon tour, hike 3/4 mile to Horseshoe Bend, take a 1/2 day float trip on Colorado River or do an all day boat tour on Lake Powell to Rainbow Bridge National Monument. (From Flagstaff take Hwy 89 to Page, AZ)

    Zion National Park - wonderful place to take hikes (Continue on Hwy 89 to Hwy 9 and enter Zion)

    Bruce Canyon National Park - also a great place to take hikes (Return on Hwy 9 to Hwy 89 and then to Hwy 12)

    Scenic Hwy 12 from Bryce to Torrey, Utah

    Capitol Reef National Park (Take Hwy 24 to park)

    Here again you have two choices see A & B below.


    Route 2 options:

    Monument Valley (from Flagstaff head north on Hwy 89 and then Hwy 160 to Kayenta and north on Hwy 191)

    Canyonlands Needles District & News Paper Rock State Park on Hwy (side trip off Hwy 191 on Hwy 211 and back)

    Moab, Utah: Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Island in the Sky district, scenic Hwy 128.

    Here again you have two choices see A & B below.

    A) Work your way to Salt Lake city and up to Yellowstone

    B) Work your way to Vernal, Utah and Dinosaur National Monument. Continue north though Flaming Gorge National Recreational area and on up to Grand Tetons.
