A beautiful area of uniquely shaped red rocks looks like a sample of Bryce Canyon. You get to look up at these formations unlike Bryce where you must look down (unless you hike a trail below the rim). They are right beside the highway too.

Visit Cedar Breaks is has amazing views. I think Brice Canyone has a runner up. Go there and take a short hike. It is wonderful

Posey Lake camping was to be our base camp for the rest if our byway 12 adventure. To get to Posey there is a turnoff in the town of Escalante. It takes about a half hour or so to get there and is a beautiful drive. The road turns from pavement to groomed gravel as you leave the desert scape... More

Despite just driving through, our family had to stop several times to take pictures because it was so beautiful. This was as attractive to me as the national parks, and I had to buy a postcard to remind myself of how beautiful it was.

Unusual and fun. We walked a few trails... Loved the dry river beds (as I'm from the East Coast, I've never had much experience with dry rivers). We spent our day trying to count all the wildlife and I poked at bushes trying to figure out which ones smelled so good. Did you know that the bark of Ponderosa pines... More

This is a review of the area just west of Bryce Canyon. I'm not sure if its part of Dixie National Forest; the "Tropic Reservoir" is right in the center. Ruby's Inn has ATV maps of the area. (There are not many renegade trails - seems like people stick to the trail, but there are no maps out on the... More

I was planning to do a hike here but got snowed out! It was a magical, snowy oasis in the middle of Southern Utah- cold and crisp and GORGEOUS! I hiked around Duck Creek and saw my first EAGLE in nature! THAT made my WHOLE day! I can't wait to come back when it's a little warmer so I can... More

We drove through at several points. Roads were well maintained. The snow added to the beauty of the trees.

Drove through Dixie National Forest on the way to Bryce Canyon from Zion Park. As with most of the scenery in the southwest Utah area, it is ever changing and spectacular. Hard to get from one place to another (time wise), as I'm constantly stopping for photos. :-) Wish I had more time to go into some of the hiking... More
