Put your phone away, keep the bad attitude at home and if you have bratty kids............leave them at the curb. This place is better appreciated if you leave all the nonsense at home.

The view is magnificent and spectacular. The redness is just so eye catching that we had to stop on our way back from Bryce Canyon. A bonus to our long drive back to Cedar City.

From Cedar City Route 14 connects to US 89 and is only 39 miles, but well worth the drive as it winds it way through many climate zones as it ascends and then descends to US 89. About a little less than half way is...More

Huge forest. Biggest in Utah. Great variety of trees and birds, plus small animals, deer, etc. Lots of amazing rock formations as well.

A real feeling of wilderness. Unexpected lava flows dating approximately 1000 years ago. heavily wooded and many open meadows

This is a very pretty and fragrant forest. The trees, lakes and views are breathtaking. Roads are well maintained and marked. We saw lots of deer and even a rock chuck. Bring your camera and take your time You’ll be glad you did.

This was our first time visiting. We could have spent more time there enjoying the scenery. Traveled in mid may and there was still one road closure due to snow. I advise going later in the season. very beautiful countryside.
