Description

Cascade Falls is a short trail with scenic views of the Virgin River headwaters and Zion National Park. Foreground views include severely eroded pink and white limestone cliff formations. The waterfall at the end of the trail spills from a cave opening in the side of the cliff. The cave is a part of a network of lava tubes that partially drain Navajo Lake. The stream is part of the headwaters of the Virgin River responsible for the formation of Zion Canyon.
