Just over half of the western portion of the highway has been designated the Beaver Canyon Scenic Byway as part of the Utah Scenic Byways and Forest Service Byways programs. SR-153 starts in Beaver, Utah as a surface street named 200 North at its intersection with SR-160 (Main Street). After approximately 3 miles (4.8 km), it enters Beaver Canyon alongside Beaver River, and after another 1.5 miles (2.4 km), it enters Fishlake National Forest. Continuing up the canyon, the route passes Three Creeks Reservoir, Elk Meadows Ski Resort, and Puffer''s Lake as it climbs into the Tushar Mountains. In this area, the route reaches its highest paved elevation at 9,200 feet (2,800 m) (Utah''s 5th highest paved road). Shortly after the Puffer''s Lake turn-off, the pavement ends and the route reaches its highest overall elevation of over 10,200 feet (3,100 m).
