Cedar Moutain and Dixie National Forest are great places to spend some time during the hot summer months.  Caves, waterfalls and ancient trees are just a few of the things you'll see when you visit. If you only have a day, here are our favorite places to stop.

Bristlecone Pine Trail

One of the most familiy-friendly hikes on the mountain is the Bristlecone Pine Trail. It's a short hike, but offers views of Zion Naitonal Park and weaves it's way through some of the oldest trees in the world.

Cascade Falls

The Cascade Falls trail offers some of the best views on the mountain, and leads to a pristine waterfall.  This trail gets very hot during the day and doesn't have any shade, so it's best to do it early or later in the evening.

Mammoth Cave

Mammoth Cave is a natural lave tube cave located near Duck Creek, UT. The tubes extend in multiple directions and are of varying heights. If you feel like belly-crawling, there are a lot of long tubes to explore. If you don't want to crawl, there are some large caverns that are interesting to explore, too.
