    Default More information please.

    Welcome to the Great American Road trip forum.

    The 'best' route is normally the route which takes you to the places which are of interest to you and which you want to visit of which we know very little.

    Without knowing more detail about this trip, the interests of the party, other than just UT and NM, and most importantly when this trip will take place and the time available for the complete trip, it is almost impossible to answer your question.

    You may find this paragraph helpful.

Those are your essential tool in any RoadTrip planning process. Start by marking all the places you know you want to visit. Then connect the dots. Then look for more places of interest and scenic routes along the lines connecting the dots. Repeat until you've got as many sites and roads as you think you want.

    Hello and welcome to RTA !

    I am presuming it is a round trip, in which case I would look to take a different route each way. There is no single best route to take but as you will need at least 3 overnight stops you could look for place you might find along the way that interest you.
