Utah's heritage and natural beauty can
be discovered by traveling on scenic and historic state
highways. Utah's official scenic drive program includes
27 Byways (paved roads appropriate for passenger cars,
but often requiring speeds less than 55-miles-per-hour),
and 59 Backways (less conventional roads varying from
paved to unmaintained dirt roads). Watch for highway signs
indicating Byway and Backway routes.
Three of the roads
in Utah's Scenic Byway Program have also been recognized
by the federal government as National Scenic Byways: The
Scenic Byway, the Nebo
Loop Scenic Byway, and the Huntington/Eccles
Canyons Scenic Byway.
