Panguitch to Torrey, UT

Traveling from Red Canyon Village in Panguitch, UT to Thousand Lakes Camground in Torrey, UT and Good Sam recommends the following route:

1 Depart toward UT-12 / E Highway 12 0.0mi 0.0mi
2 Turn right onto UT-12 / E Highway 12 0.8mi 0.8mi
3 Bear right, and then bear right onto US-89 / S Highway 89 38.4mi 39.2mi
4 Turn right onto UT-62 / W Highway 62 12.4mi 51.5mi
5 Turn left to stay on UT-62 / N Highway 62 30.6mi 82.2mi
6 Turn right onto UT-24 20.2mi 102.3mi
7 Keep left to stay on UT-24 14.8mi 117.2mi
8 Turn left onto road 0.1mi 117.2mi

Can anybody tell me road conditions and ease of travel for 36 class A (gas) towing?

Panguitch to Torrey, UT

I don't know the current road conditions, but I've driven hwy 12 quite a few times. It's got some sharp turns that you will have to keep your speed down on, but it's easily navigated with a 36' coach. (That's the size coach I drive.) The stretch between Escalante and Boulder is both beautiful and nerve racking at the same time. The views are amazing and the road has stretches that feel really narrow because there isn't anything on either side of the road.

Calf creek falls is a nice 2 mile walk if you have time too.

Going up through Koosharem isn't nearly as scenic a drive. I would opt for the long way around.

The Good Sam routing is one way to get to Torrey and you wouldn't have any issues.

However, there's a more beautiful way - taking Hwy 12 directly to Torrey. You will have a steep climb towards Torrey but many RVers do it on this extremely scenic highway. We've done it many times in both directions so we'd highly recommend it. This route would be nine miles further.

Just went through there 3 weeks ago took Hwy12 from Bryce canyon to Torrey it is a beautiful drive but long and lots of turns. I went through it with a 34ft motorhome towing my C-RV. The summit you go over to descend into Torrey is 9600ft just to let you know. It is desolate country out there but very beautiful landscape.

We also took 12 from Bryce to Torrey last summer- we have a 43' MH towing a pickup and had no issues with that road.
