Looks like an awesome trip. We drove through Kanab a few years ago and saw a road heading out that way. Looked long and dusty. We are planning to go vagabond in another year and would like to explore areas like that.

Our van is 4x2, would we be OK on the main roads? For the Jeep trails, are UTV's allowed? We have talked about towing a UTV or maybe a Suzuki to go exploring. Or are all the roads rough? It's so hard to decide what kind of fun to have.

I think pretty much any road in a National Park requires street-legal vehicles, so UTVs might be a problem.

A 2x4 vehicle would be fine on the main roads although the government agencies recommend high clearance 4x4. You will need a high clearance 4x4 to get to most of the points that overlook the Colorado River. Grand Canyon NP requires licensed street legal vehicles no Unlicensed vehicles allowed. A Suzuki would be a good solution.

We had a light rain for about 20 minutes. Five minutes after it started the roads were slick as snot.
