Cedar Mountain just an hour north of St George is a wonderful high altitude destination to view aspen and oak groves in colorful fall display. There are plenty of places to lodge at while your here. Duck Creek and Cedar Breaks National Monument are some of the closest areas to I 15 but if you want to venture out further there is the Kaibab Plateau which is home to the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. The lower elevation areas such as Zion National Park do not typically see color changes until late fall but the higher elevation areas change in mid September through the middle of October. Navajo Lake is another beautiful area to view the colors:
There is a small ski resort called Brian Head just oustide of Cedar Breaks National Monument that is America’s highest in altitude incorporated town at 9600 feet. The dry Utah powder is wonderful in the winter time. Panguitch Lake is a 1200 acre lake just 15 minutes from Brian Head that offers year around fishing and boating. Ice fishing and snowmobiling on the lake in the winter time are very popular activities. This part of Southern Utah is a great place to stay and play located just 3 hours from Salt Lake and Las Vegas. Feel free to contact us for more information and we hope to see you up here this fall.
