Brian Head & Duck Creek
Scenic highway 14 passing through Duck Creek Village and continuing to Cedar Breaks National Monument is a location you don’t want to miss! Forty gorgeous miles across the southern section of the Markagunt Plateau, east from Cedar City, to where it joins with Highway 89. This forested portion of land is governed by the Forest Service and open to many activities. Upon reaching the top of the plateau you will be at 11,000 ft. elevation. There are several scenic view points that look down into Zion National Park or out among the towering pine forest. Navajo Lake is picture perfect with the small lake framed by aspens and pines. The lake is interesting in that all water from the lake drains though sinkholes in the limestone beneath it.
Duck Creek, found along-side Highway 14, is a wonderful fly fishing stream with wild brookies and some nicer brown trout. There are many fishing ponds stocked with trout on Cedar Mountain, including Navajo Lake, Panguitch Lake, Duck Pond, Mammoth Creek, and Aspen Mirror Lake. The elevations on Cedar Mountain range from 8,500 ft. to 11,000 ft. perfect for cooler temperatures and wonderful fishing.
