The autumn leaves on the Dixie National Forest are as brilliant and colorful as you will find anywhere. When you find yourself high in the alpine meadows lined with ever green pine trees and see the splashing of the golden, red and orange aspen leaves creating a vibrant canopy for the forest floor. You can go from Brian head peak... More

We stayed in Duck Creek and drove through the Dixie National Forest on our way to Bryce Canyon. It was beautiful, complete with mule deer, Bison (on a private ranch), coyotes, pronghorn antelopes and Ospreys.

We drove up and down from Cedar City through the Dixie Forest. We saw some four wheelers and it must be wonderful for them to be able to drive through such beauty. There are a few lakes along the way, one is Navajo Lake and the town of Duck Creek (and yes, there are ducks in their lake). We also... More

We drove through Dixie National Forest on our way to Bryce Canyon. As we got close to Bryce, there were some cool tunnels made through the red rock formations that we just had to stop and photograph. Beautiful area, wish we'd had more time to explore.

The Dixie National Forest is a around 2 million acres of protected forest in southern Utah, which overlaps and buts up against National Parks like Bryce Canyon. We recently drove through sections of this National Forest during a two week road trip and were particularly impressed with the Red Canyon area, 12 miles west of Bryce Canyon National Park. Here...

Can't be missed while traveling around Bryce. This is a beautiful forest and natural wilderness run by government. Very nice.

While driving north out of Page, AZ on Highway 89 you will eventually come upon the turnoff to Bryce National Park, which is in Utah. Do yourself a favour and turn off to Bryce even if you can't spare the time. Drive 3 miles or less to Red Rock, which is within the Dixie National Forest. Along this short trip... More
