Scenic Byway 143 below Panguitch Lake

Panguitch Lake is located on the National Scenic Byway 143. This national byway is known as one of the most spectacular roads in all of the United States.

Cutting through the Dixie National forest, the views that can be seen on this byway are quite spectacular. Rich with history of the ancient Paiute Indians and early settlers, this highway has a lot to offer.

Scenic attractions are found at every turn in the road.  Cedar Breaks National Monument is just off this scenic byway, and aspens, pines and flower covered fields are all part of the view in the spring, summer, and fall.

Allow some time to explore the history and beauty that can be found all around Panguitch Lake.
