360 Adventure Cascade Falls, Utah



Cascade Falls, Cedar City Area Utah

CASCADE FALLS UTAH


I did a fun road trip to Southern Utah with a Goal of enjoying 3 places.

1. The Flowers on in Alpine Loop Trail in Cedar Breaks during their annual Flower Festival.
2. Doing a secondary hike in Cedar Breaks.  I chose Spectra Overlook.  If you haven't checked out that post, I think you would like it.   Spectra Overlook in Cedar Breaks,
Then I planned on hiking this CASCADE FALLS.

My last destination on my road trip was Kannaraville Falls, which was fabulous.  A must check out spot.  



It was such a delightful trip, and because they are all so interesting diverse hikes, and most of them not very long, that I did all 4 hikes in one day.  


 As I was driving, I noticed one of those SCENIC PULL OFFS, and lucky for me, I pulled over, and like many pull overs there was an information area there on the side of the road.  It told me about the uniqueness of this lake.  It has a network of lava tunnels where they lake flows out of.  One of those lava tunnels goes right to where we are headed.  Cascade Falls.  The hike is only   1.2 miles.  It says it is a moderate hike, but it is not that hard.  Here is more information.

LAVA TUNNEL AT BOTTOM OF NAVAJO LAKE IS WATER SOURCE TO CASCADE WATERFALL


The turn off to the falls heads around to the other side of Navajo lake.  It is a beautiful fishing lake that is about 3 miles long and is surrounded by beautiful forested hills.  It is stocked with brook and Rainbow trout, and you can actually rent a boat at the lake from Navajo Lake Lodge.







The Picture below whose the lake and they you can visualize the lava tunnel from there to the red marker where they falls are.
Below is a 360 tunnel at the Falls.  Walk around and check out the area.  It is very cool to see the water just come out of the cool hole in the mountain.  I am here about middle of July, so there is not a ton of water.

360 Google Earth Trail Cascade Falls, Utah





Cascade Falls is part of the Dixie National Forest.  

The hike is a well maintained hike there there are fun steps to keep you safe.  I never felt stressed on this trail even though you are up against a cliff often, and there is a sharp drop off on the other side.





You can see there are beautiful red cliffs off in the distance here

Here is more information from All Trails about this hike.



Here is one of the nice Scenic Overlooks along the trail.  This hike can be hot, so of course take plenty of water.



This section is especially cool.  I love the overhang, and the cool steps climbing up out from under it.  The bikers in front of me loved the nice shade and bench to take a rest.





Notice the height of the cliff, and the drop off on the other side and the awesome shapes in the cliffs in front of me.

Here are a few things that I have gear wise that I will NOT leave home without.  
HIKING STICKS

WATERBACK PACK.  It is so nice to have quick water whenever you need it while hiking.

My External GPS is a MUST. I don't have much problems getting lost because of this little baby.  It is a life saver.  








On my wish list, is this handy device that lets you send a text from anywhere through GPS. Super Cool, and the goTenna do not require a service plan. Someday if I make some money off this blogging stuff, I am going to get one of those babies.
