Navajo Lake dike was constructed many years ago to provide area visitors with an excellent recreational experience that provides fishing and boating for all ages. The dike is a very popular place to catch fish in the deeper waters if you are fishing from shore. Water travels from under the the lake through a 2 mile lava tube and exits at what is called Cascade Falls. Cascade Falls is a must see trail that follows the rim 3/4 miles to the falls.
