Provo to Moab , Utah

Tomorrow we will leave Salt Lake City , Ut. for Moab , Ut. We are trying to decide on one of two routes. I-15 south to I-70 East to highway 191. Or I-15 to Spanish Fork then Highway 6 to I-70 East then highway 191 to Moab, Ut. We are leaning toward the second route. Any one driven either of these routes RECENTLY.

I-15 to I-70 to U191 is definitely the easier route to drive. US6 is windy and hilly and if I were driving a 39' Discovery with a toad, I would definitely opt for the easier route. However, US6 is shorter and more scenic overall if that tickles your fancy. You could also go I-15 to Scipio and then take US50 to I-70, then on to 191. US50 is also narrow, hilly and windy but not as far to travel on that kind of roads as US6 and it cuts off quite a few miles between Scipio and the I-70 exit. But, again if you are looking for the easiest route to navigate with your Discovery, definitely opt for I-15/I-70/191.

I always go the Hwy 6 route out of Spanish Fork then I-70 over to go from SLC to Moab. The other route though maybe a little less hilly and much more interstate highway is longer; probably 45+ minutes to add to trip. Hwy 6 is loaded with truckers and RVers. It's 2 lane but not a problem for big rigs.

Another vote for Hwy 6 and through Price. It is good road and as stated, shorter time wise. As anywhere else in Utah, drive carefully and watch out for those who do not.
