This is very exciting if you are outdoors person, of which we are. Re Canyon, Panguitch Lake, and Boulder Mountain have year round activities, like hiking biking fishing and picnicking and so much more. I love the different species of birds. I am not good in a canoe so I didn't do that . This is also located in Utah,... More

Dixie National Forest is the beauty surrounding the area, including Red Canyon. Take some time to stop and enjoy- there are trails and excellent paved bike paths in this area too.

From scrub oak and juniper to fir, spruce and aspen groves dotted with meadows, lava fields, red rock, lakes and streams give this forest plenty of attractiveness. Summer and winter playground for hiking, fishing, ATV and snow machines, camping, vistas on every bend!

Drove up to the caves, these are really lava tubes you can crawl through. This was fun for myself and my wife, the girls didn't care for it much though. Then we went horse back riding everyone loved it. Saw a lot of wildlife and some awesome views.

This vast, oddly named forest includes great natural beauty with numerous well-maintained trails. The nearby Cedar Breaks National Monument is a sometimes overlooked gem.

We work up here in Cedar City area a lot and our line runs through the Dixie National Forest. The best part (or worst for us) is the area north of SR 18 north of Central. It is closed to Motor Vehicles. So it makes our job harder. But it is pretty.

Drove through as we visited Panguitch Lake and Cedar Breaks. You will find some very picturesque views and such a variety of landscapes from rock, to lava, cedar/birch mixed woods, streams flowing from the lake through lush grasslands, as well as the lake. It is extremely quiet and worth some time.

I took the drive on 14 from Cedar City, east. This drive is amazing. You go through the forest and you can go up to Cedar Breaks from here. There are lots of places to stop and take a little hike, or a big hike. We saw lots of deer and plenty of birds along the way. I did the... More

Dixie National Forest is beautiful. Especially the area around Bryce Canyon. But if you happen to be traveling in a motor home or trailer and heading west on Hwy 14 past Duck Creek Village on your way to Cedar City, DON'T stop to fill-up with water and dump your tanks. The camp-hosts are the rudest and most unhelpful hosts I've... More
