Lions Mouth – Cedar City, UT

Trail Summary

One little hike that’s not super well known is Lions Mouth Cave. It’s not really a cave, but rather a giant rock with some pictographs. This is a fairly easy trail that is only about 1/4 mile long and is great for the little ones. There are some gorgeous views, and another side trail that circles the giant rock. Some locals debate whether the pictographs are real or not. Either way, they look really cool.

Directions

Go west out of Cedar on HWY 56 for about 20 minutes. On the left hand side there will be a dirt road called Pinto Road. Drive on that road for about 1 mile and there is a spot to pull over. The first turn has giant ruts in it, so go to the second turn. Park and follow the trail.
