Cedar Mountain
Cedar Mountain is the most visited section of Dixie National Forest. This gorgeous alpine region can be easily reached from Cave Lakes Canyon by traveling about 40 miles north on US89 to UT-14. Cedar Mountain has one of the highest elevations in Dixie National Forest, peaking at over 11,300 feet at Brian Head.

Ski or Snowboard
Hiking, biking, horseback riding, ATV riding, swimming, and fishing are just some of the recreational reasons visitors flock to Cedar Mountain. The resort community of Duck Creek Village is a quiet alpine haven ideal for those seeking solitude and relaxation. Located at an altitude of 8,470 feet, Duck Creek Village offers great trout fishing at Duck Creek Pond, Aspen Mirror Lake, Panguitch Lake, and Navajo Lake. At an altitude of 9,200 feet, pristine Navajo Lake is the highest elevation lake on Cedar Mountain and offers excellent boating, fishing, swimming, and hiking with access to the 32-mile Virgin River Rim Trail. Cascade Falls, fed by Navajo Lake, flows from a sandstone cave and can be accessed by a short hike along a maintained trail. Mammoth Cave is an interesting feature of the ancient lava beds that surround Navajo Lake and Duck Creek.

Resting at 10,000 feet on top of the Colorado Plateau, Cedar Breaks National Monument is a natural amphitheater almost four miles long and 2,000 feet deep. The brilliant red and pink stone spires and eroded canyon walls of Cedar Breaks National Monument recall Bryce Canyon. A five-mile paved road runs through the monument boundaries with overlooks offering tremendous vantage points. Cedar Breaks was declared a National Monument in 1933 by President Franklin Roosevelt.
