Your trip will be taking you right through the Grand Circle. (www.grandcircle.org) This collection of seven national parks, eight national monuments, numerous state parks, scenic byways, historical sites, prehistoric Indian ruins, colorful ghost towns and stunning geologic formations offers lots to see and do!

You’ll travel between about 300 and 450 miles, and your trip will take between four and six hours, depending on the route you choose. The highway route through Cedar City and along Interstates 15 and 70 is quicker, and will allow you to stop at Cedar Breaks National Monument (www.ohranger.com/cedar-breaks). It’s one of the Grand Circle’s best-kept secrets, and may be on its way to becoming a national park! Get the full story here: http://www.ohranger.com/cedar-breaks/news/2009/cedar-breaks-america%E2%80%99s-next-national-park.

The longer trip, along routes 12 and 24, will allow you to experience Utah’s less-traveled roads and take you through Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (http://www.ohranger.com/grand-staircase-escalante) and Capitol Reef National Park (http://www.ohranger.com/capitol-reef).

Choose the route that’s best for you, but either way, dedicate an entire day to the drive, so you can explore the sights in the area!

While you’re in the Grand Circle, consider stopping at Zion (www.ohranger.com/zion), Canyonlands (www.ohranger.com/canyonlands) and Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park (http://www.ohranger.com/canyonlands/5-things-see-canyonlands).
