SR-12 is designated a Scenic Byway and an All-American Road. It is a gateway connection to many parks and recreational areas that include: Bryce Canyon National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Red Canyon, Kodachrome Basin State Park, Escalante Petrified Forest State Park, Anasazi State Park, and Hole in the Rock.
As part of UDOT’s routine maintenance program, various construction projects
have been planned for this corridor. They are phased so as to minimize the impact to the traveling public, especially during the peak tourist season
