62.7 miles: 1 hours, 16 minutes
Known as the "drive through the ages," the Flaming Gorge-Uintas Scenic Byway is a prehistoric time machine. The drive from south to north starts with rocky terrain on US 191 and transitions to cool blue waters of Steinaker Reservoir. Soon, Aspen and lodgepole pines rise from the Ashley National Forest. The finale? Towering Aztec sandstone formations plunge into fiery red canyons along SR 44. At nearly every turn-out, there’s a new view.
