"With trips along soaring mountains and remote plateaus to high-walled canyons and plunging river gorges, Utah Byways is the ideal guide for adventurous travelers who want to explore the state’s extensive network of backcountry roads. This fully updated edition presents 65 trips in Utah’s spectacular preserved areas such as Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Arches National Parks, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Other adventures follow the routes of the Transcontinental Railroad and the Pony Express.
Tony Huegel’s glove-box-sized Byways have been leading drivers to the hidden surprises found along unpaved backroads for more than 10 years. These books are for recreational drivers who want to use their four-wheel-drive or sport-utility vehicle beyond the pavement to explore, but who might not want to do hard-core or lengthy off-road driving. They are also for adventurers who use these trips as jumping-off points for muscle-powered exploration, such as hiking and mountain biking.
Detailed descriptions are augmented with full-page photographs and two-color maps of each trip.
Icons next to each description indicate options for non-driving activities along each route, such as biking, wildlife viewing, camping, hiking, visiting historic sites, and more.
Trail-tested, how-to tips assist beginning and experienced backcountry drivers alike.
