Utah State Route 12

Utah State Route 12 is a road that runs between US 89 to the west and Utah State Route 24 to the east and covers 122 miles.  This road has a lot to offer a motorcyclist and is one of the best overall sections of blacktop that I've ridden.  If you like straight roads with the same scenery for mile after mile, stay away from Route 12.  If you like corners, elevations changes, national monuments and parks with little traffic, you'll love this road.


We rode from east to west on Utah State Route 12, just outside of Capitol Reef National Park

The "Hogback" is one unique section of road

Route 12 is great for corner carving

The view from 9,600 ft is great

Bryce Canyon National Park is near Route 12

Before leaving on this trip and during our journey, fellow motorcyclists raved about Utah State Route 12 and that it was a "must" to ride.  They were right!
