How Geocaching Works

This is a great cache to go to when seeking refuge from the heat of the canyon below. Situated at over 7,000 feet the temperature is at least 10 degrees cooler than it is on SR 9. To log this cache, you must submit a photo of yourself with the Southern view of the West Temple in Zion behind you or a photograph of your GPSR displaying the coordinates of the cache location.
It's a great place to take the family and have a picnic. The hardest part about this cache is driving up the long winding road to get to the turn-off. But once you are there you are set for a great view. Take SR 9 and about 9 miles East of Hurricane you will take Kolob Terrace Road, 4/5 of the way to the resevoir you will see a sign for Lava Point and you will make a right on the dirt road and drive about 1.8 miles to the parking area. There are picnic tables and a campground nearby. No vehicles longer than 19 feet are allowed on Lava Point Road. The road is in pretty good condition and accesible with a 2WD vehicle, but may be hard to get by on without a 4WD when it is wet and you may get stuck. The road is not plowed in winter.
