FAQ

Are there toll roads in Utah?
Adams Avenue Parkway is the only toll road in the state. It is a short connection that allows drivers to bypass a busy section of the road. Its toll can be paid in cash.
Are snow chains necessary in winter?
Snow chains are not necessary as long as your car has winter tires. After snowstorms, it may be necessary to have snow chains to pass through certain sections of roads, but they are usually plowed before long. If you don't have chains with you, it's best to avoid travel until then.
Can I take a rental car from Utah to Tahoe?
Most rental companies allow you to drive to California from Utah. Be sure to check to make sure before, booking though.
Do I need a 4wd vehicle to travel to Utah's national parks?
No, a normal car will do just fine. Just plan to stick to paved roads and hike some of the state's amazing trails.
