Utah Hill is a pull off along Old Hwy 91 in the Beaver Dam Mountains with mixed Pinyon-Juniper and Gambel's Oak woodlands, dominated by dense understory. This is one of the last remaining tracts of this habitat accessible in the Beaver Dams. Many birders consider everything form Lytle Ranch Road north to the north end of the Beaver Dam Mountains along Hwy 91 as "Utah Hill", although the main location is located around the antennae at the summit.
Utah Hill has for some time been the go to place during the breeding season for several specialty birds in Utah, most notably BLACK-CHINNED SPARROW and GRAY VIREO. Other birds typical of juniper and oak habitats are found here as well, including JUNIPER TITMOUSE and WESTERN SCRUB-JAY year round. BUSHTIT are occasionally recorded here too. During the summer months it is also possible to pick up SCOTT'S ORIOLE, GREATER ROADRUNNER, BLACK-THROATED GRAY-WARBLER, and CASSIN'S KINGBIRD here. The location despite its limited habitat type has a list of over 70 species. Birding can be done right along the sides of Hwy 91 on the north side of the summit. It can also be done taking the side road to the east here, or the side road a little further north that goes west.
From the Corner of Bluff Street and St. George Blvd in St. George go north on Bluff Street for 1.1 mile. Turn left onto Sunset Blvd and follow through Santa Clara for 4.1 miles. After passing the Jacob Hamlin Home on the west side of town it is approximately 14.4 miles on Hwy 91 to Utah Hill--the summit of Hwy 91 in the Beaver Dam Mountains.
