Rob's Biking Adventure
One of the wildest and most scenic highways of south-central Utah was completed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1940. Designated as an All American Road, the Clem Church Memorial Highway passes through some of the most rugged lands of Utah. Once called the Million Dollar Road to Boulder, SR 12 finally brought in mail service by auto, rather than mule train. Though little remains of Camp FS-18, the CCC's legacy includes two hair-raising roads through the Escalante Canyons. Hells Backbone Bridge was called the Poison Road, since falling over an 800 drop-off meant certain death. The 109 foot bridge was completed in just six weeks.
