Road to Mighty

Southern Utah is home to Utah’s Mighty Five® national parks and connected by some of the most scenic byways and backways in the country. These roads curve through lush valleys, roll across red rock domes and climb mountains of pinyon, juniper and pine. Most importantly, these roads take you places you'll want to stop and stay. Discover why Utah's five national parks are just the beginning.
