Dixie National Forest was one of the most beautiful forests I have seen on my travels. If you stay in Cedar City its as easy as getting on hwy 14 and that will lead you right into the forest. I visited during mid September of this year and it rained hard all day long. But despite that it was still... More

As you drive through the area you wonder why it is called Dixie then I can across the explanation and then it was clear that pioneers from the south were here and it made sense. There are some magnificent National Parks in the forest. Wow s must see

We were 'oohing and ahing' at all the viewpoints throughout our drive through this forest. Amongst the gorgeous mountains with their reddish colors, the hillsides were ablaze in yellows from the Aspen trees turning color for fall! First time here and glad we came when we did!

You pass through on your way to/from Bryce and Zion. It is in the middle and has great rock formations to photograph.

My wife and I drove through the forest along Highway 14 on our way to see Bryce Canyon. It was supposed to be the scenic route and it certainly was. We stopped to take pictures numerous times along the way. The leafs had just started to turn and the contrast of the brilliant yellow leaves on the aspens (?) vs.... More

The Dixie National Forest is a must for travelers in Utah. We discovered it on the way from Zion National Park to Bryce Canyon. We left Cedar City and the scenery began displaying itself to us in magnificent ways. Mainly, all we did was drive, stop along the way and marvel, and smile. YES SMILE!! Beautiful rock formations, and many... More

This beautiful National Forest is huge and expands throughout SW Utah including Cedar City. Also take Highway 14 east toward Cedar Breaks and experience the beautiful Cedar Canyon.
