Highlight: Panguitch Lake
Panguitch Lake is where some of Utah's largest rainbow trout are fished each year; it's no wonder since the Paiute word for "big fish" is Panguitch. Visitors to the lake can also enjoy canoeing, camping, and exploring the Panguitch Lake OHV Trail System. As Utah grew in the late 1800s, the Panguitch Lake area became a retreat for people from all over southern Utah. You’ll find restaurants, boat rentals, general stores, lodges, and cabins for rent. Summer is the most active time of year around the lake, but during the winter months, ice fisherman and outdoor enthusiasts flock to the area for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. This trail easily descends 2,600’ through a beautiful mountain region within Dixie National Forest, ending in the valley near Parowan, Utah.
