Great drive around Dixie national park. Great views and it does not cost to enter. Not too much traffic which made it much more enjoyable.

The sheer vastness of everything is amazing. The rock formations are wonderful and all different. Lots of deer as you are driving through the forest, so take care but lovely to see as they cross the roads. Lots of photo opportunities. All wonderful

I'm pretty sure service dogs are allowed. You can probably check the park website for a definite answer. Some trails at parks allow non-service dogs, some do not. Usually there are signs. :)
