"The siren call of unknown roads and secret canyons draw adventurers into the landscapes of southern Utah each weekend. Places like Moab and Zion National Park are popular for good reason—but there are other roads to explore. Some of the more promising ones, like Highway 12, wait along the route from Fishlake National Forest to Bryce Canyon.
Here, you'll find uncrowded destinations, farm-to-table restaurants and campsites with unspoiled views of the wildest country in the lower 48. It's gorgeous country, but it's born of vast solitude and demands your respect.
Follow this template for an unforgettable weekend of camping, hiking, canyoneering, mountain biking and indulging. It's good to have a plan down there, but don't let it stop you from exploring unnamed roads that call your name—and they will."Launch Project
