6 Twin Tunnels at Red Canyon, Utah

You will drive through two stunning rock arches along UT-12. In 1925 when these tunnels opened, a huge banner read, “Welcome to Utah’s Fairyland.” Today, a modest road sign declares these arches to be, “A magical entrance to Red and Bryce Canyons.” After passing through the second arch, watch for mile marker 4 and a small sign reading Cassidy Trail. This is the escape route used by teenager Robert LeRoy Parker (a.k.a. Butch Cassidy) to elude a posse after getting into a brutal fight over a woman in nearby Panguitch, Utah. Cassidy Trail extends for 4.5 miles and is rated moderate.
