Beautiful scenery even if you do not head to the touristy Cedar Breaks National Monument. Many locations above 9,000 feet so it’s cool in the summer. Cedar Canyon east of Cedar City should at least be driven through ... Hwy 14. Camping and hiking opportunities...More

We drove through this forest on our way to Bryce Canyon National Park. It is quite stunning, especially in the evening when the red rocks just glow. Worth a stop at some of the viewpoints to get out, have a look around and take some...More

This area presents the best of both high desert worlds - green forests and variegated red rock desert formations. It's an inspiring natural wonder that is a pleasure to explore on foot or traveling through by vehicles.

Lots of hiking opportunities but in late April, most of them are inaccessible. A very detailed map is available but it is very difficult to find out about road and trail conditions.

Driving through this area on the 143 or the 14 is amazing. There are views on every turn. In April traffic is scarce and on the highest parts there is snow.

You can look at pictures all you want but until you actually see the red soil and mountains first hand you have no idea how amazing it truly is. The entire Dixie area is wonderful to explore and don't forget Bryce Canyon. It will blow...More
