We drove through Dixie National Forest and couldn't take our eyes off the towering pines and beautiful yellow hues of the quaking aspen leaves with their stark white trunks. The night before it had snowed a couple of inches which just added to the beauty.

We traveled they the Dixie National Forest at the beginning of October and the fall colors were spectacular. It was such a peaceful drive without much traffic. This is definitely on our bucket list to do again. Breathtaking scenery.

I'm pretty sure service dogs are allowed. You can probably check the park website for a definite answer. Some trails at parks allow non-service dogs, some do not. Usually there are signs. :)
