The Dixie National Forest in southern Utah has been a hotbed for volcanic activity for millions of years. The region is littered with massive patches of the jagged black rocks that have been slowly overgrown with aspen and conifer trees. If you're looking to get away for a long weekend on forested trails where the nights are cool, then this region of the Dixie National Forest has an abundance of trails to explore and plenty of other family activities as well. There are lakes for fishing, caves to explore, and an awesome hike to Cascade Falls. This area is sure to have everything needed to keep a family busy for a week. The Henrie Knoll trail is a short out and back route that travels to the top of a knoll, 700 feet above the surrounding area. The summit offers stunning panoramas of the Markagunt Plateau and other nearby knolls. The view at the top is a great location for a lunch break while enjoying the fall colors.
