Scenic Drives Southern Utah
Cedar Mountain Plateau
This incredible Island In The Sky has been endowed with the beautiful Dixie National Forest covering hundreds of square miles of diverse terrain with Pine, Spruce and Aspen trees, rolling hills and expansive meadows, lakes and streams, and awesome lava fields surrounded by precipitous reddish cliffs and offering a plethora of beautiful scenic destinations sites.
Zion Overlook is one of the world's most spectacular panoramas of nature's robes of summer's greens and of fall's brilliant yellows and reds with the dramatic towers of Zion National Park as a backdrop.
Strawberry Point, a rugged small peninsula on the edge of the plateau where hundreds of feet below you gaze out at a sea of green that laps against the towering wind-carved red cliffs and "hoodoos".
Cascade Falls, a stream of water that gushes from the side of a mountain and plunges into the rocks and forest below to become the Virgin river.
Navajo Lake stretches four miles westward from the remnants of its volcanic beginnings and nestles in the forested shoreline of its own long valley.
Mammoth Cave was created by lava flow millenniums ago and left long tubes as it cooled, that now offer a unique adventure into its black cavern.
Brian Head Lookout is accessed by a spectacular drive to over 11,000 feet where you can see "forever" over the plateau to the distant mountains and the valleys below.
Cedar Breaks National Monument is a stunning sight of color and form on the edge of the plateau. [Read more under National Monuments]
