Dixie National Forest consists of almost two million acres and is the largest national forest in Utah. The large range of altitude (from 2,800 ft. to 11,322 ft.) plays a part in the diverse terrain the forest has to offer. In the lower altitudes foliage consists of sagebrush and desert-loving plants, in the mid-range altitude pinyon pines and juniper are plentiful. At the highest elevations, aspens, pine, and spruce trees make up the landscape. Hiking trails are found throughout and include slot canyons and high alpine trails. Anasazi ruins, caves, and lava fields are some of the more unusual sights to see. Camping, mountain biking, horseback riding, and photography are just a few of the many other activities available.
At the top of Cedar Mountain, at an elevation of 9,200 ft., Navajo Lake tempts visitors with boating, swimming, and fishing. Stocked every year, the lake boasts rainbow and brook trout. Camping is popular at the campground during the summer months, and for those who prefer a comfortable bed and shower, the Navajo Lake Lodge offers accommodations.
Cascade Falls emerges from a cave in the middle of a sandstone cliff. Fed by Navajo Lake, the falls drop 100 feet. Accessed by a short, easy hike on a well-maintained trail, the elevation begins at 8862 ft. and culminates at 8957 ft. Dogs are allowed on this trail, and the views of the valley below are stunning.
