Utah State Route 12
This 123 mile (198 km) highway connects US-89, just south of Panguitch and Torrey (intersection with Utah State Route 24). It crosses Dixie National Forest, goes by Bryce Canyon National Park, and cuts through much of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument before reaching the town of Torrey. The drive to or from Bryce Canyon to Capitol Reef takes about three (3) hours on SR-12.
