I have ties to the Bennett Ranch in that my Grandfather, Charles Norris, who summered there with his Wife Nell in the 1950's. He built the BBQ that still stands today! (See Pictures). The Loop is one of the most striking, picturesque place in Utah....More

One of the best drives in utah. Red rocks that you could reach out and touch. There is an app available that explains different aspects of canyon. It's free and worth listening to while going through canyon. Don't miss this drive. It's a must do.

This is one of the most beautiful drives in Utah and Utah has a lot of wonderful drives. We saw two buck deer and two does, along with wild turkeys. The views are just amazing. You will not be disappointed.

This is a great drive with lots to see - canyons, creeks, etc. We saw lots of mountain goats and wild turkeys. If you're pressed for time, you can do the entire loop in less than an hour. It's paved.

Please don't miss this amazing drive! You will go through awesome canyons and gorges, and see it all again from 9000 ft elevation.
