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.

Staying in Vegas, we decided to visit the South rim of the Grand Canyon. Checking Google maps, my husband saw a lush green area that was an hr closer.

Red Canyon is a wonderful place to hike and dog-friendly too. We didn't see another human being on our hike. I prefer Red Canyon to Bryce.

Dixie National Forest is a perfect example of the definition of color country. The rock formations are incredible to see. They change with the movement of the sun.

I bought a Polaris Rzr side by side, and have been exploring the trails through the Dixie National Forest. Wonderful trails, and amazing scenery. The color changes are awe inspiring. There are also a lot of places to explore by car, and wonderful hiking opportunities.

Beautiful views are abundant. Weather absolutely perfect. Clean streets all over the town. Good lunch at Marks Deli, too much too for very reasonable price. ATV's galore. Lots of shopping for a little town.
