Many people only travel along highway 14 enroute to Brianhead, Cedar Breaks, Bryce, Zion, or one of the wonderful fishing lakes (Panquitch, Navajo, etc.); yet, this area on Cedar Mountain is a wonderful destination. This trail is very well maintained (bridges & wooden steps), and has several benches and a viewing platform to rest and enjoy the view.
Cascade Falls is a stream of water that gushes from the side of a mountain and plunges into the rocks and forest below to become the Virgin river.
