“Cedar Breaks and Dixie National Forest are One Drive”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Drove to see the Changing of the Leaves. While the Yellow Aspens can be found in many places. The Salmon and Pink Glowing Leaves of some Trees (Sorry don't know the type) were incredible and I've Never seen them even in the Great Smokey Mountains nor in the New Hamshire/Vermont areas.

“You'll be in Dixie at some point”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Dixie NF is huge and covers a good bit of Southern Utah. You'll find yourself driving in and out of it while traveling. There is so much to see it would take a large book, if your interested stop and get a map and info at a VC.

“What a climb coming from the east!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The pines and aspens were beautiful. After driving so many miles of barren rock you come upon this vast expanse of trees, flowers and senic views. Pulloffs were more than accomodating for our pickup & travel trailor. Restrooms were clean.

“Vast and Varied”
Reviewed July 25, 2012 via mobile

We had the opportunity to spend time here while camping up at Cedar Breaks, however there are many beautiful campgrounds in the forest. As others have noted, this treasure is vast and varied in climate and habitat. Great hikes of all lengths and levels. Our family loved the short hike to Cascade Falls... Stunning views all the way to Zion NP and a waterfall that crashes down the mountain shooting out through a lava tube beneath Navajo Lake. On a bright summer day we were the only people there... Like having a slice of a national park all to yourself. We also went to Mammoth Cave, a lava tube... and our first cave experience. Reactions are mixed: 9 year old son loved the darkness and the mystery and scrambling over the rock; Mom found it interesting, a bit challenging to regain a sense of balance in the darkness; Dad disliked the closeness and low clearance as well as the mud and portions of crawling. Take good flashlights and clothes that can get dirty and remember it is cool underground.
