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,...More

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.

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. :)
