Duck Creek Village vacation rentals

Duck Creek Village is high-country heaven

They say that coming to the high country of south-west Utah is to get yourself 'elevated'. Duck Creek Village is a case in point. Sitting 8,400 feet up the sprawling Cedar Mountain, Duck Creek Village vacation rentals serve as wonderful launchpads for all manner of natural highs. There are flower-decked meadows and back-country trails to spin through in summer. There's a snowmobile and ski cross-country nirvana to carve through in winter. And whatever the season, marvels like basalt lava tubes, layer-cake canyons, and glittering lakes make for a scenic backdrop that’s sure to take any remaining breath away.

Duck Creek Village—the great outdoors awaits

Being active here means getting out into the great outdoors. So, Duck Creek Village vacation rentals are the perfect place to start out from. Grab your jacket and you could be jumping onto an ATV or snowmobile; you could be putting on your boots for a hike or a bike ride; or, you could be getting the waders on for a morning of flicking lines into a cool mountain stream, catching trout in a net. Whatever you choose, exploration is the name of the game. And hundreds of miles of tracks will ensure you'll never get bored.

Phone-camera time at Duck Creek Village

When it's time to kick off the snow (or mud) from your boots, Duck Creek Village offers up plenty of sights to delight during those less active moments. Mammoth Cave is just around the corner. And even though there are no giant mastodon bones to ogle, there are some amazing ancient lava tubes to peer into. Navajo Lake is a silvery crescent set among black slabs of lava, while Cedar Breaks National Monument glows with its red-and-orange layer-cake geology. Time to get out the camera. Or enjoy a visual spectacle indoors at the Fine Art Bingham Gallery.

Making the most of each season in Duck Creek Village

With great heights comes great weather, and your Duck Creek lodgings' sky-high elevation will ensure you'll see the best that each season has to offer. Winter sees an awesome white-out, where 2 feet of fresh snow hits each month. During spring the gentle mountain rains tease vivid colors back into the wild meadows. Then, when summer hits, you'll find cooling mountain breezes keep day-time highs restrained to a comfortable 60-70°F. So not too much sweat for all those hikers, bikers, and climbers pushing themselves in this high-country heaven.

Duck Creek Village—a volcanic playground

Most Duck Creek Village vacation rentals lie strung along the valley floor, surrounded by the gnarly black hills and forested slopes of Cedar Mountain. This is all part of the Markagunt Plateau, an ancient basaltic lava field. Some of the cinder cones and lava flows here only erupted 1,000 ago. It's a dramatic backdrop for wildlife spotting, and there's plenty of that to seek out. Elk, deer, and porcupine top the list, but elusive mountain lions, black bears, and bobcats can make the day for the most patient.
