      Head of the Rocks Overlook, Utah Scenic Byway 12
      Photo by Peter Thody
      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.
