Nestled in the Dixie National Forest, the town of Brian Head is surrounded by beautiful red-rock and canyon views. Add in the abundance of outdoor activities, historical sites, and friendly locals, and it's easy to see how Brian Head has become one of the premier vacation destinations in the state. Most of the shops and restaurants throughout Brian Head can be found along Main Street, but the town is small enough that anything you wish to reach can be accessed by foot.
While you're in Brian Head, be sure to also make time for these activities and must-see destinations that highlight the beautiful outdoor scenery of the region:
-Go Skiing: With a base elevation of over 9,600 feet, Brian Head is the highest point in the region, which means that the mountains are full of white snow perfect for skiing in the winter months.
-Marathon Trail: For an afternoon of hiking, this site has an excellent variety of terrain and scenery for all skill levels and ages.
-Scout Camp Loop: A historic steam engine and beautiful alpine meadows are some of the highlights of this local trail.
-Dixie National Forest: Located just east of Brighton, this forest is a popular site among locals for camping, hiking, and tubing.
Despite the small size of Brian Head, there are plenty of big events held in the town throughout the year. Take part in a truly unique experience at the Two-on-Two Snow Basketball Tournament in March, cheer on the riders competing in the ski competition known as Rail Jam in April, or enjoy the games and live performances that are part of the Spring Carnival in April.
