If traveling from Capitol Reef to Moab, I suggest this scenic route. Moderate scenic drive with lots of options to stop at viewpoints and stretch the legs a little.

Beautiful drive, made it to just outside of Capitol Reef's eastern entrance. There's an odd string of small towns between Loa and Torrey, breaks up the drive nicely. The interesting landscape begins just after Bicknell if you're heading east. Lots of stops around Fruita in the National Park that are interesting to stop at.

Beautiful section of highway. Well maintained, trail access, and areas through Capital Reef are absolutely breathtaking. Residents in this area are lucky to get to drive this section of highway frequently!

My last trip on this road was in 2009. We stayed about a week in Torrey while we were exploring Capitol Reef NP. Lot of beautiful scenery!
