The roads we drove on in the Dixie National Forest were quite scenic. For that matter, most if not all of Southern Utah is a beautiful and worth a visit.

The driving you will do to get here isn't worth the trip unless you have other places to see along the way.

Scenery was excellent. You can look out from a turnout over the canyons of Zion. There is also the beautiful Red Canyon with visitor's Center and facilities. This is a large forest that spreads over southwestern Utah.

The autumn leaves on the Dixie National Forest are as brilliant and colorful as you will find anywhere. When you find yourself high in the alpine meadows lined with ever green pine trees and see the splashing of the golden, red and orange aspen leaves...More

We stayed in Duck Creek and drove through the Dixie National Forest on our way to Bryce Canyon. It was beautiful, complete with mule deer, Bison (on a private ranch), coyotes, pronghorn antelopes and Ospreys.

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. :)
