Marysvale to Circleville is a short exciting drive passing through great mountian scenery, Dock Spring and the Piute Reservoir. Be sure to stock up on supplies at the Sinclair convenience store before you depart or choose nearby Junction. A fun drive to the south will take you through BLM and state land. The open and winding valleys make for a great half-day trip!
