Scenery You'll See
This route is the officially designated National Scenic Byway. You'll be climbing to over 9,000 feet in elevation for some stunning views of Mt. Nebo, one of the tallest peaks in Utah and in the Wasatch Range. Along the way you'll travel through pleasant gentle canyons, pine forests and dense stands of aspen trees as you make your way through the magnificent Uinta National Forest. The route is especially beautiful in the when aspens and maple trees change colors.
Towns/Cities You'll Pass By/Through
The starting point is the town of Payson which has an annual Payson Golden Onion Days - it features fireworks, flowers and art shows. Aside from Payson, towns are not part of this road trip. It is a curvy scenic drive. The road starts out in a narrow canyon following a trout stream as it finds its way through the canyon. Eventually the road climbs out of the canyon on its way towards Mt. Nebo.
Attractions & Points-of-Interests Along the Way
Along the way you can stop at the Utah Lake Overlook to enjoy a spectacular view of the beautiful blue waters of Utah Lake.

A highlight of this route would be viewing some amazing red rock spires at the Devils Kitchen Geologic Interest Site.

There are many places to camp, hike or picnic along this route. The first campground along the route, Ponderosa, is situated in a stand of conifers and offers 22 great sites. You can also visit Bear Canyon Campground at the end of road. There's also a trailhead to the Nebo Bench Trail nearby. This trail leads all the way up to the summit of Mt Nebo.
