This spectacular scenic drive takes in the arid and colorful landscape surrounding the Green River as it slowly tumbles from its namesake city to Lake Flaming Gorge. You can see this byway — often referred to as “the best of Sweetwater County” in just a few hours. Or make this beautiful drive last by camping overnight and spending more time watching for wildlife.
