Red Desert Road is located within the Cedar Breaks region of the Dixie National Forest. This easy but very scenic route travels through lush mountain landscapes and wide-open prairie fields. Along the way, there are lava rock flows that wind their way through the trees and across the meadows. You can stop and view numerous craters left behind from when this region was littered with volcanic activity. The trail does have a few challenges in the middle section of the route. There is large lava rock in the trail and it becomes quite muddy from spring runoff. Connecting this trail Second Left Hand Canyon to the north, makes for a wonderful all-day adventure.
