if your are a nature lover, don't miss the drive through the Dixie National Forest! We opted for this route as the shortest way to get from Bryce Canyon to Cedar City (using a "real" map), and certainly got more than we expected!! It is an easy drive but the scenery should not be missed. We stopped several times along... More

On our way to Bryce Canyon we stopped to enjoy a quiet hike into the red rocks of the Dixie National Forest. Off the beaten track and very quiet with great scenery and wildlife.

Driving from Grover Utah to Boulder Utah I was able see very beautiful country. I drove with the windows down to take in the fragrance of the trees and the fresh air. The speed limit was 45 mph but why would anyone want to hurry through this forest. The slower you go, the more you get to take in.

Drove out from Cedar City through this miracle of nature.Great scenery and rock formations everwhere. It must be wonderful to stop off in the summer and picnic.

We drove through the Dixie NF going from Zion NP to Bryce Canyon NP. We didn't expect much. Were we surprised! As we entered (in mid September), we were treated with beautiful, multicolored trees. As we drove, we saw many evergreen forests as well as beautiful yellow trees (aspens?). We drove to lake where we got out our bikes and... More

What a beautiful scenic drive, and a great shortcut to Bryce Canyon. When I drove there, there was fresh snow in the early morning just after sunrise on a sunny day. It could not have been more enchanting, but I know this drive is great all year round.

The national forest is stunning and a must visit if you are in the area. A natural beauty that is as spectacular as the Grand Canyon. I

Best off the beaten path hikes in the south of Utah outside of parks run by the state or feds. I liked the hikes around Brianhead best.

The Forest is so large that it cannot be fully seen and enjoyed in a week. A visitor needs more than a month. We have a high clearance 4 WD vehicle so we can get into the back woods. Take the time to see as much as you can. Your life will be enriched and you will never forget the... More
