Fishlake National Forest

Breakfast at the hotel and go to explore the amazing nature. The Fishlake National Reserve is an extremely beautiful mixed woodland, crossed by small rivers and streams and filled with many small lakes, mountain peaks and canyons. This place is significantly different from what we've seen, because the rock here does not have such a rich red tone, and you see green meadows instead of prairies. The terrain looks fascinating during the flowering period, as well as in the autumn, when deciduous trees become bright yellow and conifers remain bluish-green.

Cove Fort

Historic Sites

Cove Fort is one of the few forts of Utah, well-preserved from the late nineteenth century to our time. This happened because, unlike most similar buildings, it is built of stone, not of wood. The historical place is a must-visit for those who want to learn more about the life of the first settlers and touch the history.

Arshels Cafe


On the way to the next natural wonder, we stop for lunch. Arslels is a country cafe with a very simple interior and delicious, home-cooked food. The specialty of the place is excellent pies and desserts, they are definitely worth a try.

Cedar Breaks National Monument

National Parks

Despite the fact that the first settlers called this place "cedar breaks", most of the trees growing here are pines and junipers, many of which are over a hundred years old. The reserve is home to many rare animals, here you can find badgers, porcupines, elks, deer and even pumas.

Pizanos Pizzeria

Pizanos Pizzeria is a place where Italian taste and American comfort meet. Watch how delicious crust pizza is prepared in the open kitchen. In the evenings, sporting events are regularly held here and the quiet family pizzeria turns into a noisy and cheerful place.

The Red Door Retreat

A busy day comes to an end, it's time to return to the hotel to have a good sleep. And tomorrow you can enjoy the variety of flora and fauna of Zion Park.
