Bristlecone Pine Trail
This is another relaxing trail that meanders through the forest. The round-trip is less than one mile. The trail goes along meadows of wildflowers and aspens and ends smack in front of a grove of spectacular bristlecone pines and there is an impressive view of Zion in the distance. The sign for the trailhead is not easy to find unless you know right where to look. When traveling toward Cedar City, the trailhead will be on the left, just past the turn-off to Cedar Breaks. Bristlecone pines are usually considered the oldest living thing on the earth, but aspen are giving them a run for the title.
Duck Creek and Duck Lake
If you enjoy fishing, then this is the place to go. Choose between the popular Duck Lake trout fishing or the picturesque Duck Creek option.
The view point along highway 14 overlooking Navajo Lake offers a picture perfect setting. The turn-off to Navajo Lake is located just north of the view point. Small boats and fishing are the main attraction at this small lake.
Navajo Lake Loop Trail
This popular trail is open to bikes or hiking. The route from the Cascade Falls Trailhead to Strawberry Ridge is a moderate, but long hike, with beautiful views of Cedar Breaks-like hoodoos and bristlecone pines along the path. Hikers often break this long bike trail down into three hiking sections.
This is not a hike, but a great scenic overlook. The West Temple in Zion National Park is the focal point. The pull-out is located past the Navajo Lake view point. When traveling toward Cedar City it will be on your left.
This is a nice drive on a dirt road to a wonderful view point. A high clearance vehicle is suggested. The dirt road may be impassible when wet.
This is a fun adventure off the beaten path. Make sure to take a bright flashlight for each person. There is more than one tunnel in the cave and some people pull themselves through a small opening on their bellies to an opening at the other end. The cave is about a half-mile long. Caution: At the end of the cave there is water seepage and it becomes slippery. Do wear closed toe shoes because the rocks in here are sharp and you are making you way with just a light. It is pitch dark inside.
The Ice Cave
The Ice Cave is located on the road behind the Duck Creek Visitor Center. This cave is small with only one chamber, but it has snow and icicles in it year round. Caution: The cave is wet and slippery.
Note: Cedar Breaks is surrounded by Dixie National Forest and is a must visit location when in the forest.
