Road trip during Winters in Utah-NV

Jump to last reply

I am planning for a road-trip in UT during winters with my family (spouse, and 2 kids - 11 yr and 14 yr). I will be driving 4x4 Nissan Pathfinder car with decent experience of driving in mountains.

Let me know if this route is okay (specially the last leg from Arches National Park to South Rim Grand Canyon) for drive during the last 2 week of Dec.

I will appreciate if you can also suggest me -
a) road condition in this route,
b) good lodging options on this route.
c) good scenic lookout points that i should not miss

Day 1 - Las Vegas to Zion canyon via I-15 & UT-9; Explore Zion Canyon and Stay overnight.
Day 2 - Explore Zion Canyon and drive to Bryce Canyon via UT-89 & UT-12; Explore Bryce Canyon and Stay overnight
Day 3 - Stay in Bryce Canyon and Explore local areas
Day 4 - Drive from Bryce Canyon to Capitol Reef National Forest via UT-12 (Let me know if this is a good idea to drive on this in Dec end) & Stay Overnight in Torrey
Day 5 - Explore Capitol Reef National Forest and explore local region; Stay overnight in Torrey
Day 6 - Drive from Torrey to Arches National Park via UT-24 -- I-70 -- UT-191; Explore region and Stay Overnight in Maob
Day 7 - Drive to Canyonlands National Park via UT-191 & UT-211 and Stay overnight in Maob
Day 8 - Drive From Maob to Grand Canyon (south rim) via UT-191 -- UT-160 -- UT-89 -- UT-64. Stay there for 3 days
Day 10 - Drive back to Las Vegas
