Navajo Lake and
Duck Creek

The picturesque lakes on the Markagunt Plateau, located along SR-14, draw visitors to their shores with their beauty, fishing, hiking trails and bike paths. Scenic Navajo Lake sits at 9,200 ft. The name came about when Cedar City cattlemen and a Navajo Indian raiding party had a violent encounter during the 1800's.  Small boats can be rented near the 3.5 mile long alpine lake. If you are looking for something more active, you can hike or bike around the lake on the Navajo Lake Trail which is a 11.5 mile loop.  Navajo Lake is found on SR-14 near mile marker 25.  Turn on Forest Service Road 30053 and follow it to the Te-Ah Campground to the trailhead.

Zion National ParkNature Notes

The life line to the Southwest is the Colorado River and its tributaries. These bodies of water flow through the Great Basin Desert carving the beautiful parks you see today, but also giving water to the arid desert environment. Even with the harsh drought the west has suffered lately, the Colorado River is able to supply many sections of the US. These areas include Salt Lake Valley, Rio Grande Basin, Denver, Cheyenne, the southern coastal plain and irrigation districts in California.
