History of Brian Head A funny name; so how did Brian Head get its name? It still is somewhat of a mystery today; there are many different stories and interpretations embellished by those who think they know! As the early pioneers explored and settled the west, this unique location was known as Monument Peak; a landmark used by expedition leaders and surveyors as a point of reference. Sometime in the early part of the 20th Century the name was changed to Bryan Head, no records were kept or have been found, but speculation is that renowned explorer John Wesley Powell named the peak after an officer named Bryan in the US Geological Survey headquarters.

produced in a section of town, known as Little Ireland. In the developing town, Minnie Adams Burton established a hotel, restaurant, and dance hall known as "Minnie's Mansion"; it was quite the place! Every 24th of July, sheep and cattle herders and others in the district joined the town’s people in Brian Head to commemorate Utah’s statehood. Minnie's was the focal point, sharing a grand meal and celebrating with horse races, potato sack races, dancing, and fireworks.

Another account argues that Brian Head was named in honor of American politician William Jennings Bryan by the residents of Parowan circa 1890. Another tale claims that a United States government official’s wife, accompanying him to the area, did not like the name of Monument Peak. She wrote letters to U.S. Government authorities recommending that the name be changed to Bryan Head. Somewhere along the way the spelling changed to Brian Head.

The establishment of Brian Head as a resort town is a relatively recent development. Local resident Burt Nichols saw the opportunity to change the beautiful slopes surrounding the town. With ideas and support of others, he opened the Brian Head Resort, with one chairlift, a T-bar, and a warming house in 1964. In 1975 the town of Brian Head was incorporated. In 1990 Brian Head Resort facilities were greatly expanded with the addition of snow making technology and new terrain parks to cater for snowboarding. That same year, Brian Head Resort was further developed as a foremost mountain bike destination, utilizing over 200 miles of existing livestock trails as terrific mountain downhill biking. In late 2007, the Resort introduced the latest snowmaking technology and established an interconnect bridge increasing skiable terrain to over 650 acres.

As the area further settled industry came to the community; farmers, ranchers, and loggers all made their living here off the land. Brian Head became widely famous for the butter and cheese

Today Brian Head is the premier resort town of Southern Utah, with visitors coming from all over the U.S. and the world to experience a fun time. A funny name, but a great place to visit!

Mountain Biking For All There are many biking trails in and around Brian Head. For a trail map pick up a copy of the Bike & Hike Guide from Brian Head Visitor Center, lodges and hotels or from one of the bike shops in Brian Head. Trails are profiled in the guide ranging in difficulty from “low” to “advanced”; you’ll be sure to locate one that will meet your level of fitness and or challenge. Bike rental shop staffs have great knowledge of the trails, so speak with them to get local knowledge of conditions and locations, and advice on the best fit for you. Local shops provide bike rentals, safety equipment and will service and repair your bike for the challenges you are yet to take; some also offer round trip shuttle services. Most of the bike trails outlined are multi-purpose trails, open to hiking and mountain biking. Descriptions are written for the purpose of mountain biking, hence bikers should observe the right-of-way and yield to all other trail users. Below are some of the most popular rides in the area. Trail profiles are brief; riders are advised to obtain more detailed information from local bike shops in Brian Head. The biking season in Brian Head is short but sweet. Due to our high elevation, the season usually begins in mid-June and runs through mid October. Daytime temps usually hover in the mid 70’s, but be sure to bring warm clothing for morning and evening riding. Low elevation trails have been included for off-season riding and hiking. Blowhard Mountain Location: 10 miles south of Brian Head Distance: 7.5 miles Type: Point-to-Point, Shuttle required Physical Difficulty: Intermediate. It is downhill all the way. Technical Difficulty: Mid to High. Switchbacks, singletrack trail, loose and rocky. The Ride: Sections of the trail, particularly the initial descent are challenging. However, gorgeous views of both the Ashdown Gorge Wilderness Area and Cedar Breaks National Monument makes this trail a scenic ride.

Lowder Ponds Location: 4 miles east of Brian Head Distance: 11.5 miles Type: Loop Physical Difficulty: Intermediate. Overall climbing is steady, with some short steeper climbs. Technical Difficulty: Mid. Some loose gravel and roots on the singletrack. The Ride: This trail combines ridgeline singletrack, with downhill ride through changing forest clusters amongst wild flower meadows and ponds.

Bunker Creek Location: Brian Head to Panguitch Lake Distance: 12 miles Type: Point-to-Point, shuttle required Physical Difficulty: Intermediate. Technical Difficulty: Low to Mid. The Ride: With a couple of ridge climbs the trail is mostly downhill, so expect a fast and exhilarating cruise. Riding is relatively easy, notwithstanding the 11,000 feet elevation. From this 11,000 feet ridge you will take in spectacular views. Be prepared for a few quick turns, the occasional boulder and a few tree roots.

Marathon Trail Location: 1.5 mile south of Brian Head Distance: 26.7 miles Type: Point-to-Point, Shuttle required Physical Difficulty: Advanced (due to length). Technical Difficulty: Low to Mid. The Ride: A mix of single and doubletracks, Marathon Trail leads south from Brian Head vicinity through the south rim of the Markagunt Plateau connecting with Navajo Lake and Virgin River Rim Trails.

Technical Difficulty: Mid to advanced. Some rocky descents and loose gravel. The Ride: From Utah’s highest peak this trail is one of contrasting surroundings. From the alpine tundra the trail drops 5,000 feet through lush forest to red rock desert surrounding Parowan. Dubbed by locals as the “vertical mile”, so ensure your brakes are in good condition.

Mountain Biking For All (cont.) Navajo Lake Location: 21 miles south east of Brain Head, at Navajo Lake. Distance: 11.5 miles Type: Loop Physical Difficulty: Low. A nice winding loop trail for novices, with a few short climbs. Technical Difficulty: Low. Generally a nice steady single track, perfect for beginners. But also a fun, fast ride for advanced riders. The Ride: This is an ideal trail for those travelling with children and/or novice mountain bike riders. Built by Dixie National Forest in 1996, this one offers a smooth, groomed tread and low grades. Once you become familiar with this trail, you will find it fun when ridden from either direction. You will also learn that it can be accessed from several locations. Scout Camp Location: Brian Head Distance: 11 miles Type: Loop Physical Difficulty: Intermediate. Two short strenuous climbs, terrain generally rolling. Technical Difficulty: Mid. Some rocky terrain, twisting trail. The Ride: This mostly challenging dirt singletrack trail navigates through forests of mixed spruce and aspen, intertwined with small meadows of native flowers.

Up and down sequences, hoodoos, some steep hills. Technical Difficulty: Mid to High. Quick shifting on some hills, fast switchback descents. The Ride: If you’re looking for a scenic ride, this is one of the best. Enjoy this unique ride along ridges and through the hoodoos of

gorgeous rock formations, cliffs, and canyons. The steep climbs are balanced out by quick descents for an all-around great ride. Two options exist – use a shuttle for a one-way ride of 7 miles, or use the pavement of Hwy.12 for a 15 mile loop. There isn’t actually any “Thunder Mountain” – this is simply a name created by the Ranger District. However, it well describes the amazing, flat-topped tiered limestone columns you will find about three miles into this trail. Virgin River Location: 21 miles south east of Brian Head, centered on Navajo Lake. Distance: 33 miles Type: Point-to-Point, Shuttle is needed, there and back. Physical Difficulty: Advanced.

Several switchbacks may require dismount as they are both steep and sharp, a few singletrack challenges. Best time to Ride: Summer through Fall. The Ride: The unbelievable views make the length of this trail completely worthwhile. Make this a two or three day ride – take your time and enjoy spectacular views of the Virgin River and Zion National Park. Several camping options along the way make this a nice, full weekend climb. Get ready for many climbs and some technical, steep descents. Town Trail Location: Brian Head Distance: 5 to 6 miles depending on the route. Type: Loop Physical Difficulty: Intermediate. Gradual climbs. Technical Difficulty: Low. Wide single-track. Best time to Ride: Late Spring through early Fall.

So Many Things to Enjoy in Brian Head ATV Trail Riding

If the power of an engine is your thing, or you really want to get off the beaten track, ATV-ing may be your scene. Climb the summit to Brian Head Peak, journey past miles of ancient lava flows or meander through aspen groves and alpine meadows. There is much to discover. Trail maps are available online at www.stateparks.utah.gov

Native Flora

You will notice significant changes in vegetation as you travel from the valleys to Brian Head. Sagebush and rabbitbush on the valley floor, low-growing pinion pines and juniper at mid altitudes to aspen, ponderosa pine, bristlecone pine, Engelmann spruce, and subalpine fur at high altitudes. Sadly, many of the spruce trees have died, attacked by spruce bark beetles; some harvesting was initiated to reduce fire danger, logs have been used as building materials for furniture and for log homes. Locals have collected many of the wind fallen trees for firewood.

Fishing

Southern Utah fisheries are where you will discover fishing at its best. Meandering trout streams and pristine lakes surround Brian Head, including Yankee Meadow, Panguitch Lake, Lowder Ponds, Red Creek Reservoir, Mammoth Creek, and Navajo Lake. Just some of the great spots where you can secure the catch of the day! Fishing licenses are sold at businesses in town or online at www.wildlife.utah.gov/licenses

Bird Watching

Get out your binoculars and clean the lenses on your camera. Brian Head has great opportunities to view fabulous specimens of birds. Brian Head Peak Road and Cedar Breaks National Monument are the best areas to view Mountain Bluebird, Clark’s Nutcracker; even Golden Eagles have been spotted in the area. Pick up a Birding Trails Guide at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center at the Brian Head Town Hall.

Scenic Sky Lift Rides

Chairlift service is available to hikers, bikers, and sightseers in search of Utah’s famous red-rock vistas. Open Friday through Sunday during the peak of the summer season. Experience the stunning views of Cedar Breaks National Monument and Brian Head Peak at 11,000 feet.

So Many Things to Enjoy in Brian Head (cont.) Wildflowers What is really spectacular is the array of blooming

wildflowers intertwined amongst native grasses during late spring and summer months. The winter snow covered meadows give way to a carpet of beautiful colored flowers; it is most stark atop the Markagunt Plateau in and around Cedar Breaks National Monument. Scenery is lush; the air while fresh is spiked with the fragrance of spruce, fir, flowering grasses and blooming flowers. This environment is one to behold.

Scenic Drives Fall Colors As the seasons change in preparation for winter

the trees begin their natural defoliation. Before doing so, the leaves show multiple shades of orange, yellow, and brown providing a stunning backdrop to this amazing landscape. NBC ‘Today Show’ travel editor, Peter Greenberg, describes this area nationally as one of “8 great and unusual fall foliage destinations”.

The natural beauty of the area is unmistakable as you drive through; pack a picnic lunch and take a leisurely drive on a bright sunny day. Most noteworthy is National Scenic Byway 143, known as the Patchwork Parkway, beginning in Parowan and travelling up the canyon to Brian Head, climbing to the peak at 11,000 feet and winding your way to Panguitch. The Byway features a myriad of natural, scenic and historic qualities. Pick up a Scenic Byways guide at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center at the Brian Head Town Hall or log onto www.hwy143.com

Under the Stars

Today we are rarely free of light. Even on the darkest of nights, fugitive light infiltrates the splendor and clearness of a dark starlit sky. Not at Cedar Breaks; isolated and elevated at night you can experience the wonder of cosmic space as the stars and planets sparkle like diamonds in the sky. Join one of the ‘Star Parties’ hosted by park staff and astronomy volunteers on Point Supreme during summer. For dates check www.nps.gov/cebr/upcoming-events

Brian Head Peak

With an elevation of 11,307 feet, Brian Head Peak is the highest point for the geological formation known as the Grand Staircase. A fort built by the Conservation Corps. sits atop the peak and is the perfect place for observing the view stretching clear into Nevada to the west and beautiful Cedar Breaks to the south.

Disc Golf

Brian Head Resort offers Utah’s highest and longest alpine disc (Frisbee) golf course. The 18-hole course starts at 11,000 ft.; all holes are par 3, with a total course distance of 10,000 ft.

Dixie National Forest Local Recreational Attractions

The Dixie National Forest occupies almost two million acres stretching 170 miles across southern Utah. Utah's largest national forest straddles the divide between the Great Basin and the Colorado River. The scenic beauty of three neighboring national parks and two national monuments prevails over much of the Dixie National Forest as well. The sandstone formations of Red Canyon rival those of Bryce Canyon. The view from Hell's Backbone Bridge into Death Hollow is breathtaking. From the top of Powell Point, it is possible to see into three different states. Boulder Mountain and its many different lakes provide opportunities for hiking, fishing, and viewing outstanding scenery. Recreational opportunities in the forest are highly diversified. Visitors may enjoy biking, camping, canoeing, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting, and swimming, and in very primitive settings away from the sights and sounds of motorized vehicles. Others may enjoy vehicle-based activities such as picnicking, viewing scenery and interpretive exhibits, snowmobiling, sailing, and water skiing. The forest has 83,000 acres of wilderness, which offer opportunities for solitude, horseback riding, and hiking.

The Dixie National Forest supports a wide variety of wildlife species. Terrain varies from gentle plateaus to rocky cliffs and furnishes habitat for many species such as the cougar, bobcat, blue grouse, golden eagle, cottontail rabbit, wild turkey, antelope, and Utah prairie dog. Big game hunting has traditionally been the major wildlife attraction in the forest. Mule deer are harvested on every ranger district, and elk are expanding their range in the forest. Good fishing is found in the many lakes, reservoirs, and streams in the forest. Game fish include brook, rainbow, cutthroat, and brown trout. Forest visitors can often observe many interesting birds and mammals next to a lake, stream or pond.

Winter Sports

Opportunities for winter sports such as cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are available in many areas. The Forest Service works with Utah State Parks and Recreation to maintain trails for skiing and snowmobiling near Cedar Breaks and Bryce Canyon.

Mammoth Cave

One of the most interesting features of the Dixie National Forest is the ancient lava beds that surround the pristine Navajo Lake and Duck Creek areas. This geologically recent lava flow represents the last of the extensive volcanism on Cedar Mountain. Geologists believe that some of this lava rock is not more than 2,000 years old. Much of the lava did not come from a central volcano but welled up from cracks and fissures in the earth’s surface. There is a profile of a cinder cone that can be seen on the north end of the Navajo Lake and Hwy U-14 junction. Another interesting feature of the lava beds is Mammoth Cave. This tunnel or lava tube was formed by cooling lava and water. The cave is about Ÿ mile long and is safe to explore if proper care is taken. Explorers will need to climb down to entrance so be sure to wear proper clothing and footwear. There are four caverns located inside the cave with the tunnel heading west being the largest. Please note that some areas of the cave may be blocked off during certain times of the year to protect the essential habitat for wildlife.

Season

Mammoth Cave is only accessible from late June through October.

29


Yankee Meadows

The Yankee Meadows area is a little known gem that offers outstanding beauty and recreation. Your journey begins eight miles along Hwy 143 towards Parowan. You’ll the see the Yankee Meadows turnoff next to a small water retention basin (good fishing spot). As you drive up the Yankee Meadows Road (locals often call it First Left Hand Canyon) you’ll first encounter the Five-Mile Picnic Area neatly tucked away along the Bowery Creek. The picnic spot is surrounded by the towering red rocks of Vermillion Castle dotted with juniper trees and scrub oak and maple. Five -Mile is open late May through September for public and community use. No overnight camping is allowed and no potable water is available. Use of the 17 picnic areas is on a first come-first served basis. However, there is one picnic site that is tailored for large groups, which can be scheduled for use through Parowan City. As you continue along the route, the Vermillion Castle will unfold above you. The area was named for the bright red rock formations and gray stone conglomerate cliffs. There are several trails that lead to the top of the cliffs where one can see the “Noah’s Ark” and the “Grand Castle” formations. In the fall, the scrub oak and maple blaze red and orange making it an outstanding area for leaf peepers. As you continue up to Yankee Meadows, the road meanders through lush fields of aspen and spruce. A Dixie National Forest campground is located on the east side of the road. The pavement ends at the campground and turns to a good gravel road continuing up to Yankee Meadows Reservoir. The scenery is fantastic at the lake with towering volcanic cliffs of Sydney Peaks rising in the distance. Summer and fall, trout fishing and non-motorized boating are the most popular activities. The reservoir shoreline is owned and administered by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources while the water is managed by the Parowan Reservoir Company for irrigation purposes. Public access to the reservoir is open, but camping and grazing are restricted. Facilities are limited at Yankee Meadows so remember to take out what you bring in. No overnight camping is allowed at the lake and no potable water is available. Keep in mind that cell service is generally not available.

Navajo Lake The Navajo Lake recreation area is located atop Cedar Mountain, approximately 20 miles southeast of Brian Head. This pristine lake was originally known to the Paiute Indians as “Pa-Cu-Ay”, meaning “Cloud Lake”. Early pioneer settlers gave it its present name after a confrontation took place near the lake between the settlers and some traveling members of the Navajo tribe. Navajo Lake was formed when an ancient lava flow dammed the eastern side of the lake valley. Resting on a layer of limestone, the lake soon developed underground drainage through sink holes. Some of the water drains towards the Pacific Ocean via Cascade Falls and the Virgin River (the river that formed Zion Canyon). The balance runs east beneath the lava rocks coming out at the Duck Creek spring and sinking again to feed numerous springs that form the Sevier River (one of the few rivers in North America that flows north). The manmade dike that stretches across the lake helps to maintain a constant water level. Boating, swimming and fishing are the most popular activities at Navajo Lake in the summer and snowmobiling, ice fishing, and snowshoeing are fun in the winter.

Panguitch Lake Panguitch Lake is located approximately 20 miles east of Brian Head and sits at an elevation of 8,400 feet. The word "Panguitch" comes from the Paiute word which means "Big Fish". The lake is in close proximity to several world-class attractions such as Bryce Canyon National Park, Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, and Cedar Breaks National Monument. The Lake has approximately 10 miles of shoreline and is ideal for year-round fishing. In the summer you find excellent fishing for some of the largest rainbow trout in Utah. Boats are available for rent. There are plenty of activities to enjoy in the area including: mountain biking, ATV riding, and horseback riding. In winter, ice fishing is a popular sport and easily accessible from local lodges. You can also enjoy snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. Panguitch Lake sits in the Dixie National Forest and is adjacent to National Scenic Byway 143 between the towns of Panguitch and Brian Head.

For additional information on Dixie National Forest visit www.fs.fed.us/r4/dixie or visit the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center at the Brian Head Town Hall.

Parowan Gap The Gap is a historical site of major significance. Parowan Gap has two distinct features, one natural, one man-made. The pass near Parowan is a classic example of a wind gap, an unusual ancient geological landform marking where an ancient river has cut a 600-foot-deep notch through the Red Hills some 15 million years ago. Secondly, the gap is a nationally recognized extravaganza of petroglyphs--a superb "gallery" of Native American rock art. Here one can witness what is at least a 1,000 year accumulation of art work carved into the rock. Geometric designs, images of lizards, snakes, mountain sheep, bear claws and human figures adorn the smooth canyon walls of the pass. These features, set amidst the vast panoramas of the Escalante Desert, make for a fascinating getaway located just a few miles off the interstate mainstream.

About the Parowan Gap Petroglyphs

Native Americans traveling through the area carved out designs known as petroglyphs onto the smooth faces of large boulders found on the east side of the gap. The petroglyphs here are thought to be the work of several cultural groups and represent a long period of use by Native cultures.

32

What these designs mean is still unknown. Archaeologists debate that they represent concepts, ideas or actual happenings. Perhaps they were part of a religious activity or hunting ritual. The local Native Americans consider them to be an important part of their cultural history relating stories of their ancestor's ways. While the precise age of these petroglyphs is not known, we do know that the agriculturally based Sevier-Fremont lived in the area over a thousand years ago. There is little doubt that some of the designs were made by this group, or perhaps even the earlier nomadic archaic peoples. Researchers believe that the semi-nomadic ancestors of the present day Southern Paiute also created some of these figures. The Parowan Gap Petroglyphs are listed on the National Register of Historic Places signifying its importance as a cultural treasure; please take care when visiting and viewing this site. Pick up a Parowan Gap Petroglyphs Interpretive Guide at the Brian Head Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center.

Getting there

Travel from Brian Head to Parowan. Go north on Main to 400 North. Turning west and travel for 10.5 miles on good gravel road.


Utah Shakespeare Festival Held annually in Cedar City, this prestigious festival is entering its 50th year of presenting great performances from around the globe to theater patrons. It was in 1964 that young Cedar City theater professor, Fred Adams, envisioned a Shakespearean festival that would entertain the thousands of national park tourists that visit the area each summer. Having grown into one of the top Shakespeare Festival’s in North America, the Utah Shakespeare Festival earned the coveted Tony Award for Best Regional Theater in 2000. William Shakespeare once wrote “the Play’s the thing”. Maybe he was referring to Cedar City, where “PLAY” is not only synonymous with the great outdoors, but with performing arts as well. Indulge yourself in a little Play amongst Festival activities; attend one of the Shakespeare or other contemporary productions, experience the Greenshow, come along to a programmed seminar or take a backstage tour, we are sure you will be entertained! Six plays are presented in repertory each Summer season, in two grand theaters; the outdoor Adams Shakespearean Theatre, one of the closest replicas of the original Shakespeare ‘Globe Theatre’, and the indoor Randall L. Jones Theatre, a stunning and modern theatre featuring classical and contemporary works. During the Fall season the Randall L. Jones Theatre host three more world-class plays.

Cedar Breaks National Monument

Bryce Canyon National Park

Zion National Park

Kolob Canyon

Brian Head is an excellent base to explore nearby Cedar Breaks National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park and Kolob Canyons, all within a short drive of Brian Head.

Cedar Breaks National Monument Approximately two miles south of the town of Brian Head is Cedar Breaks National Monument, a giant amphitheater high atop the Markagunt Plateau, over 2,500 feet deep and more than three miles across. With spectacular colors formed by an abundance of mineral deposits, Cedar Breaks National Monument is breathtaking to behold. The formations in Cedar Breaks consist of ridges, pinnacles and buttresses carved from the steep cliffs by wind and water erosion over more than 30 million years. From the highest point of 10.662 feet to the lowest at 8,100 feet, guests are treated to spectacular views of dense forests of subalpine fir, Engleman spruce and quaking aspens, plus fields containing more than 150 species of wildflowers. Bristlecone pine, one of nature's oldest living trees, grows along the rim of the amphitheater and can be seen in abundance throughout the area. A six-mile scenic drive leads past four overlooks, each offering a different perspective of the amphitheater. A log cabin constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1937 still serves as the visitor center. For those who want to get off the beaten path, two hiking trails near the rim provide an added appreciation of the geology and flora and fauna of Cedar Breaks. The Spectra Point/Ramparts Overlook Trail is a four-mile round-trip hike along the rim, with spectacular views of the amphitheater. The Alpine Pond Nature Trail is a self-guided, double-loop trail through forests and meadows. The lower portion offers excellent views of the Breaks.

Cedar Breaks GPS Ranger

A personal self-guided video tour is available as you walk or drive the spectacular Cedar Breaks Amphitheater. The GPS Ranger automatically delivers the story of the hoodoos and fins, Southern Paiutes, spectacular wildflowers, and much more. A Cedar Breaks Park Ranger is with you on the screen as you immerse yourself in the wonder of Cedar Breaks National Monument. Video and audio is automatically delivered using GPS technology. The GPS Ranger is available now to visitors for a nominal fee at the Cedar Breaks Visitor Center. Proceeds benefit park programs.

KOLOB CANYONS Kolob Canyons is the little known portion of Zion National Park, but it is just as spectacular as the main canyons of the Zion proper. Just two miles off Interstate 15 at exit 40, the five mile scenic drive follows a valley alongside Taylor Creek, with a showing of rugged, red, Navajo sandstone canyons of unique geological history. Kolob is home to diverse animal and plant life, and provides peaceful and serene surroundings to those that visit. Kolob Canyons is a beautiful place to tour throughout the year. You have a choice of a couple of short trails; one follows Taylor Creek leading to Double Arch Alcove, a large canyon wall overhang extravagantly colored by streaks of mineral-laden water, and sheltering hanging gardens of wildflowers. In the winter, the red Navajo sandstone glimmers with a fresh dusting of snow and in the spring the waterfalls cascade down the rugged cliffs, streaking them black from the run-off. Wildflowers bloom in abundance during the summer, and with the coming of autumn, the yellow-gold leaves of the valley’s scrub oak offers an attractive contrast to the vast scenery.

Visitor Center The visitor center at the Kolob Canyons entrance is accessible from I-15, exit 40. During summer months, the visitor center is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Spring, Fall. and Winter hours are shortened, call 435-586-9548.

Zion National Park Established in 1909 as Mukuntuweap National Monument, it was renamed Zion National Park in 1919. The name of Zion was given the park by Mormon pioneers referring to the Hebrew word meaning a place of safety or refuge. Amid stunning scenery, found nowhere else on earth, Zion is a geologic showpiece with sandstone cliffs among the highest in the world. Zion features one of the last mostly free-flowing river systems on the Colorado Plateau. Measuring 229 square miles (147,551 acres), Zion’s elevation ranges from 3,666 ft (1,128 m) in Coalpits Wash to 8,726 ft (2,660 m) in Horse Ranch Mountain in the Kolob Canyons section. As host to Utah’s richest diversity of native plants (almost 800), Zion National Park’s variety in elevation, sunlight, water, and temperature create ''microenvironments,'' like hanging gardens, forested side canyons, and isolated mesas. Home to 75 species of mammals, 271 birds, 32 reptiles and amphibians, and 8 fish, you will often see mule deer, rock squirrels, lizards, and many species of birds. Rare or endangered species include the Peregrine Falcon, Mexican Spotted Owl, Southwest Willow Flycatcher, desert tortoise, and the Zion snail, found nowhere else on earth. Evidence of Ancestral Puebloans, formerly known as the Anasazi, date from about 2,000 years ago; Paiutes from about 800 years ago to present. Mormon settlers arrived in southern Utah in the 1860s. Park visitation in 1920 was 3,692; in 2004 it reached 2.7 million. Zion National Park is a showcase of geology. The arid climate and sparse vegetation allow the exposure of large expanses of bare rock revealing the park's geologic history. Located along the edge of a region known as the Colorado Plateau, rock layers have been uplifted, tilted, and eroded, forming a feature called the Grand Staircase. This series of colorful cliffs stretches between Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon. The bottom layer of rock at Bryce Canyon is the top layer at Zion, and the bottom layer at Zion is the top layer at the Grand Canyon.

Visitor Center

The Zion Canyon Visitor Center, a short distance from the Park's South Entrance, is adjacent to Springdale, along Hwy U-9. During summer months, the visitor center is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Spring, Fall, and Winter hours are shortened.

Zion Canyon Shuttle Information

The Zion Canyon Scenic Drive is only available by shuttle bus April through late October; private vehicles are not allowed. Highway U-9 through Zion/Mt Carmel Junction is open to vehicle traffic all year. The National Park Service recommends the following steps to allow for an enjoyable trip through the park using the shuttle system. 1. Park at the Zion Canyon Visitors Center. Enter the park on foot at the Zion Canyon Giant Screen. 2. Use the exhibits at the Visitors Center to plan your visit, whether it is hiking or sightseeing. The bookstore has a variety of information to ensure you enjoy every minute of your visit. 3. Board one of the free shuttles into the canyon that run regularly from 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. 4. Wheelchairs, walkers & strollers can be accommadated on the shuttles. Pets are not allowed.

Bryce Canyon National Park Bryce Canyon National Park was named after southern Utah’s pioneer Ebenezer Bryce, who came to the Paria Valley with his family in 1875. Bryce was sent by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to use his carpenter skills in settling the area, Bryce built a road to the plateau top to retrieve firewood and timber, and an irrigation canal to raise crops and animals. Local people called the canyon with the strange rock formations near Ebenezer's home "Bryce's Canyon". Bryce Canyon National Park is identified with a series of horseshoeshaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau in Southern Utah. Erosion has shaped colorful limestone and sandstone into thousands of spires, fins, pinnacles, and mazes. Collectively called "hoodoos," these unique formations are whimsically arranged and tinted with colors too numerous and subtle to name. Ponderosa pines, high elevation meadows, and fir-spruce forests border the rim of the plateau, while panoramic views of southern Utah spread beyond the park's boundaries. The park boasts some of the nation's best air quality and coupled with the lack of nearby large light sources, creates unparalleled opportunities for star-gazing. Little is known of the Native American inhabitants of the park prior to Mormon pioneer settlement. Limited archaeological studies indicate that this area was used primarily for hunting, with most habitation in the river valleys below. Trips to the plateau were limited to harvesting its forest resources, particularly wild game. Later settlers continued this seasonal use. Open all year, the Park is visited by more than 1.5 million visitors annually, offering recreational opportunities in each season. Hike,

Altitude Sickness

While Brian Head offers great recreation at an altitude above 10,000 feet, there is the potential for about 25% of visitors to experience some physical discomfort. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is an illness brought on by the combination of reduced air pressure and lower oxygen concentration that occur at high altitudes. Symptoms can range from mild discomfort (headache, nausea/vomiting, and other flu like complaints) to major life-threatening ailments of the nervous system, lungs, muscles, and heart.

While in Brian Head, eat light and drink plenty of fluids. Diets high in carbohydrates, moderate in protein and low in fats provide the energy for increased physical activity. With dry air the risk of dehydration is possible. A good rule of thumb is to drink 8 oz of fluids (water, fruit juice, etc) every hour. Alcohol and caffeine have a negative effect on fluid retention so take in moderation. Listen to your body; breathe deeply increasing oxygen intake and adjusting to the high altitude. Take regular breaks to prevent fatigue. Seek medical attention promptly if you are ‘out of breath’ and breathlessness does not go away. Headaches are common. Minor discomfort can be relieved with non prescription pain medication; again if symptoms persist, pain increases or intensifies, seek medical help immediately. Contact the Brian Head Medical Clinic for treatment of high altitude illness, located in the Navajo Lodge, lower level. (Ski season only) Open 7 days, 10am to 5pm during the ski season. 435-677-2700
