Drove through on Utah 14 from Cedar City on the way to Cedar Breaks. Some outstanding views. Drivers have to pull over and stop. A very curvy road.

A wonderful drive, seeing beautiful red mountains and great scenic views. There are great photo opportunities of the stunning vistas. Interesting trees, although some have died. Well worth a visit.

My wife and I are still not sure why Utah has a "Dixie" National Forest? It is very beautiful and mostly very peaceful with not too much traffic on many of the state highways through the N.F. Red Canyon is relative small compared to Zion or Bryce Canyon but it is no less beautiful!

We were in the area to visit Bryce Canyon but got in early and spent an afternoon at Dixie. The scenery was beautiful the staff friendly and the park is very accessible. Be sure to make the short hike to the Alpine pond and make sure to visit Brian Head point just outside the north gate. The 3 mile drive... More

Initially I planned to just pass through the area but when I got into the Red Canyon area I ended up hiking a couple of the trails and really enjoyed it. Less crowded than the nearby National Parks and some interesting scenery,

Beautiful scenery, no signs telling you what you can and cannot do. No body collecting money from citizens passing through. Same scenery as cedar breaks only the way Utah always was before the Federal Government decided to take it over and charge a fee to even see it.

There is almost unlimited things to do here. Cedar Breaks was amazing. We went in July and the wildflowers were all in bloom. Fishing at Duck Creek and Aspen Mirror. Hike to amazing Cascade Falls. Visit Cedar City and the Shakespearean Festival for wonderful high class entertainment. We spent the night in Brian Head and drove to Brian Head Peak... More

there is so much to see as you drive through the mountains here around Cedar City. Take some time and step out of the frantic real world and imagine what it was like 100 years ago. relaxing and beautiful.
