National Monument: This spectacular bowl is filled with Hoodoos
and strange formations and colors, similar to that found at Bryce
Canyon. Nearby Ashdown Gorge is a favorite for back-country activities.
Also close by is Brian Head Ski & Summer Resort Southern Utah
Water seeps through the bottom of Navajo Lake and exits the mountain
on the south, creating a stunning waterfall set against the iron oxidized
limestone formations of the Virgin River rim.
This 30 mile long rim is dotted with trails which either access the
rim or follow its contour. Hiking, Mountain Biking, X-Country Skiing
and Snowmobiling are prime along this magnificent view point. Zion,
Bryce and even the Grand Canyon North Rim are visible from points
along the rim.
The lakes, rivers and streams of this area are filled with Rainbow,
Brook, German Brown and Cutthroat Trout. You'll find some trophy
size fish in nearby Panguitch Lake.
As soon as the snow melts the wildflowers fill the meadows and valleys
with a myriad of colors. There are few places in the southwest where
the forest is more beautiful.
Aspen, Oak and Pine combine for shades of emerald, ochre and crimson.
The scenic walks and drives are never more spectacular than late September
and early October in the Duck Creek area.
Brian Head Ski and Summer Resort, and Panguitch Lake are all within
a 20 minute drive of Duck Creek Village. Zion and Bryce Canyon National
Parks along with the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument are
each less than 45 minutes away. This truly is the ideal center for
your visit to southwestern Utah's spectacular attractions.
