Description
Dixie National Forest consists of about 1.9 million acres of land that is located in southern Utah. The forest land was established as a national forest on September 25, 1905, and is managed by the U.S. Forest Service. Some of the popular urban areas near the forest include Saint George, Cedar City, Enterprise, Escalante, and Panguitch. To access the park, you can use several different routes including US 89, UT 12, UT 14, UT 18, and UT 24.

Once you arrive at the Dixie National Forest, you will find several interesting attractions. Some of the popular attractions to the forest include Powell Point, which offers panoramic views of three different states. You can also get to see Panguitch and Navajo lakes as well as the Red Canyon. The Red Canyon is comprised of red sandstone formations that rival those of the famous Bryce Canyon National Park. 

The forest land is also comprised of a large elevation range of between 2,800 feet to the highest point at Blue Bell Knoll on Boulder Mountain which reaches a height of about 11,322 feet. The forest is also home to four officially designated wilderness areas including Cottonwood Forest Wilderness, Ashdown Gorge Wilderness, Pine Valley Mountain Wilderness, and Box-Death Hollow Wilderness. 

The Dixie National Forest also has several amenities including several visitor centers like Duck Creek Visitor Center, Pine Valley Heritage Center, Escalante Interagency Visitor Center, and Red Canyon Visitor Center. Besides these visitor centers, the national forest also houses other amenities like five picnic sites, group camp, 26 campgrounds, and some trails.

Dog owners can bring their tail-waggers into Dixie National Forest, but it is important to remember that strict park rules need to be observed. Some of the basic park rules include ensuring that dogs are always leashed or in a secure enclosure. Ensuring that all dogs are prevented from entering into prohibited areas of the forest and ensuring that any poop that your dog excretes is immediately collected and disposed of in the right manner.
