The Utah Portion of US Route 6 takes a wild ride through the Great Basin Desert and Wasatch Range! At Delta, it splits from US 50 before venturing towards the historic Tintic and Eureka mining districts. Near Santaquin, travelers will join I-15 for some high speed action to Spanish Fork canyon – that’s where you’ll hop off with US 89 for an incredible trek into Soldier Summit. After cresting those mountains is when things get really interesting as this route makes its way deep down Utah’s coal country – there’s even one final surprise waiting along side of fellow traveler U S 191!
Traveling east from Green River, I-70 and US 50 form a dynamic duo as they wind along the dramatic southern edge of the Book Cliffs. Conjoined with them is US 191 to Crescent Junction – an impressive feat considering this trio continues for miles! An eye-catching visual spectacle in Utah’s breathtaking landscape awaits adventurers who make it all the way through Grand Valley into Colorado.
