South Utah to Salt Lake City via Flagstaff

I will be making a trip in a few weeks through Utah. I want to see the best Utah has to offer on this trip as I pass through the state one time heading north ultimately to Winnemucca. I am driving a 30' ACE and towing a vehicle. I would appreciate any input on which scenic drives to take and which roads are too narrow, etc. to travel on.
Thanks in Advance!

From Flagstaff to Salt Lake City will give you some nice drives if you stay off interstates. However, you won't see 'all' that Utah offers.

You want to take 89 north out of Flag to Page, AZ and continue to Kanab, Utah (Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is here - an awesome place - sign up for a tour) There's also Coral Pink Sands State Park with colored sand like you've never seen before. You could also drive to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon from Kanab as a day trip.

89 north to UT9 will take you into Zion Nat'l Park. If you want to stay in Kanab area and just do Zion as a day trip, you can make it a very scenic circular drive. Hwy 9 east into Zion and the towns of Springdale and Hurricane then pick up UT59 which becomes AZ389 taking you to Fredonia at Hwy 89. Then 89 north to Kanab.

89 north to Hwy 12 east will take you to Bryce Nat'l Park and on to Torrey, UT and Capitol Reef Nat'l Park.

From Capitol Reef that 24 to I-70 a short distance to Hwy 191 south to Arches/Canyonlands Nat'l Parks.

Then backtrack on I-70 to Green River and take 191/6 north bringing you to I-15 at Spanish Fork, UT just south of Salt Lake City.

All roads are RV-friendly. We've driven them many times with our 40' motorhome towing the Jeep. They are popular RVing routes.

Have a great trip!

It is not clear to me in your post did you take HWY 12 to Torrey,UT on you way to Bryce.

The reason I am asking is I would like to take about the same rough as you except. I am not to sure about (safety) about pulling my 32' feet wheel all the way on HWY 12.

We would like stop and camp some where around Escalante or Boulder Utah.

I also thought there was a tonal on HWY 9 after Kanab, Utah that is to small for a RV?

Staying off the Interstate would be a plus for us.

Thank You and 73's
