Water seeps through the bottom of Navajo Lake and exits
the mountain on the south, creating a stunning waterfall
set against the iron oxidized limestone formations of the
Virgin River rim.
As soon as the snow melts the wildflowers fill the meadows
and valleys with a myriad of colors. There are few places
in the southwest where the forest is more beautiful.
This 30 mile long rim is dotted with trails which either
access the rim or follow its contour. Hiking, Mountain Biking,
X-Country Skiing and Snowmobiling are prime along this magnificent
view point. Zion, Bryce and even the Grand Canyon North
Rim are visible from points along the rim.
The lakes, rivers and streams of this area are filled with
Rainbow, Brook, German Brown and Cutthroat Trout. You'll
find some trophy size fish in nearby Panguitch Lake.
Aspen, Oak and Pine combine for shades of emerald, ochre
and crimson. The scenic walks and drives are never more
spectacular than late September and early October in the
Duck Creek area.
Lake, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Brian Head Ski and
Summer Resort, and Panguitch Lake are all within a 20 minute
drive of Duck Creek Village. Zion and Bryce Canyon National
Parks along with the Grand Staircase Escalante National
Monument are each less than 45 minutes away. This truly
is the ideal center for your visit to southwestern Utah's
Breaks National Monument: This spectacular bowl is filled
with Hoodoos and strange formations and colors, similar
to that found at Bryce Canyon. Nearby Ashdown Gorge is a
favorite for back-country activities. Also close by is Brian
Head Ski & Summer Resort
