We drove through the Dixie NF going from Zion NP to Bryce Canyon NP. We didn't expect much. Were we surprised! As we entered (in mid September), we were treated with beautiful, multicolored trees. As we drove, we saw many evergreen forests as well as beautiful yellow trees (aspens?). We drove to lake where we got out our bikes and... More

What a beautiful scenic drive, and a great shortcut to Bryce Canyon. When I drove there, there was fresh snow in the early morning just after sunrise on a sunny day. It could not have been more enchanting, but I know this drive is great all year round.

The national forest is stunning and a must visit if you are in the area. A natural beauty that is as spectacular as the Grand Canyon. I

Best off the beaten path hikes in the south of Utah outside of parks run by the state or feds. I liked the hikes around Brianhead best.

The Forest is so large that it cannot be fully seen and enjoyed in a week. A visitor needs more than a month. We have a high clearance 4 WD vehicle so we can get into the back woods. Take the time to see as much as you can. Your life will be enriched and you will never forget the... More

Enjoyed driving through the Dixie National Forest in early October. The road to Duck Creek was very pretty & the elevation was above the tree line in some spots. Was amazed to see lava beds while traveling through DNF. Just a beautiful drive!

Slot canyons, waterfalls, red rock and ancient lava flow, there isn't much Dixie National Forest doesn't offer. Amazing mountain bike trails, fishing for anglers of all ages, and a show of Fall colors that is just breathtaking. I am grateful to call this area home, some of the most beautiful and awe inspiring landscapes I have ever seen.

Our travels locked us into dates and we were very disappointed to miss the fall foliage peak on October 17 ... At the higher altitudes, the Aspen are at peak around the last week of September to the first days of October ... Some color at lower altitudes

There were so many places to see and enjoy. The very high country fall color was gone but lots of mid level areas were prime like around Duck Creek. Red canyon was a awesome place to see.
