Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument

Route 12 (121 miles)

This scenic byway snakes through two of Utah's five National Parks, including Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef. There are sensational views to be had on this 124 mile stretch of great motorcycling road, including multicolored canyons, cliffs and vast mesas. This road is truly a winding delight of stunning views and little traffic.

Arches National Park Loop

Routes 46, 191, 70, 128 (181 miles)

There are tremendous views to be seen on this great motorcycle route along the Colorado river and rock spires. Spectacular canyon riding, and there are many turn-outs available to pause and take it all in. Arches National Park is one of the most unique National Parks in the entire US. Be sure to stop by the excellent town of Moab.

Highway 9

Route 9 (45 miles)

This road has some great variety with long straights eventually give way to sweeping curves and mild elevation changes. Once in the Zion National Park region, it's a twisty ride, especially up the switchbacks to the tunnel and through the east side of the park. It's a great ride among the massive sandstone cliffs of cream, pink, and red that soar into a brilliant blue sky

Torrey to Mexican Hat

Routes 24, 95, 261 (174 miles)

The scenery is incredible on this route through red-rock canyons, natural bridges, and the wondrous Lake Powell. The views through this vast stretch of canyons with long sweeping curves all makes it a fantastic road to motorcycle through. With this route lying between Monument Valley and the above mentioned Route 12, it would make for an excellent few days of motorcycle touring.
