Navajo Lake
This alpine and partial manmade lake is located in the Dixie National Forest, in the mountains above Cedar City. It is surrounded by a lush and dense aspen forest. The fissures in the rock under the lake act as natural drainage and the drainage spills out several miles away at Duck Creek and in the middle of the mountainside at Cascade Falls.

One of the southern most alpine lakes in the United States, Navajo Lake offers a leisurely time. There are small fishing boats and fish in abundance in the lake. There are trails that run nearly the entire length on the lake. There is also lodging available. This area is very different from most parts of the desert southwest. Due to the extreme high altitude, in excess of 10,000 ft. (3,050 meters) special considerations should be taken for those who my have problems in this altitude Winter can be very treacherous in area of the lake, so that would not be the best time of year to visit. If you happen to go in the autumn the area is alive with the color of the changing aspens that, along with several pines and spruce surround the lake.
