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

We camped at the King's Creek Campground in Dixie, which was such a nice change after being stuck in RV parks. This is a real campground in the forest. It was lovely. The bathrooms were clean. At night we went out to the boat put-in area on the lake and layed down and looked at the stars. It was magical... More

More of a warning than a review lol. Beautiful alpine forest but don't take the Route 14 at night. I was advised this was a 'slower but more scenic way' to Cedar City from Bryce. IF someone had said, the road climbs up to 10,000 ft, has sheer cliff falls on both sides, snowey, pitch black, 20 degrees, and nothing... More

This is a large and wonderful forest which we encountered several times. There are so many beautiful sights that I cannot mention them here but if drive on SR12 you will be amazed.

I drove through Dixie National Forest on my way to Cedar City, Utah. It's a beautiful, scenic drive. There are alot of options of things to do, like snowmobiling & Cross Country skiing during the winter and hiking during the warmer months

Lots of things to see. Make sure to take the # 12 scenic route. We plan on going again this year. Drive slow or you may miss something beautiful.

When it is hot on the valley floor, head up to the high country. Some very nice high elevation grasslands, hawks abound, and usually fairly quiet in the non-hunting season. You can camp most anywhere and it is free. This Aquarius Plateau country is worth the visit!

We love to camp in this forest and ride our ATV through the trails, it has a mixture of Pine forest, high meadows, lava rock flows. Duck Creek Area is popular with visitors but there are a number of places to visit here including the Mammoth Lava Tubes.
