Indian Creek Scenic Byway: Monticello to Needles District, Canyonlands is a 40.7 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near Monticello, UT that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for nature trips, birding, and scenic driving and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
I have done this route a couple of times over the years. Just did it again enroute from New Mexico to Salt Lake, Utah. Rec. opportunities are all but endless along this route. I try to stop and see at least one on the way and always wish I could spend a week.
Traveled this road several times when I was younger.
I thought it would be more scenic. NOT
Not near as busy as the Island in the Sky, the Needles District is still worth the trip to see. There are some good 4X4 routes, and numerous hiking trails as well.
