Located north of St. George, the Pine Valley Recreation Area is set among pines and firs and offers a nice place for just relaxing and enjoying the cool realms of the forest. In addition, there’s the opportunity to fish for rainbow and brook trout at nearby Pine Valley Reservoir
Short, scenic and fun, this little trail leads from the campground at Red Cliffs Recreation Area into a narrow canyon beside a small stream. As you hike, the canyon narrows until it is just a few feet wide and a beautiful little waterfall blocks the trail. But it is easy to climb around and the trail continues into the canyon.
Spring and fall are ideal times to hike here. Afternoon temperatures are very hot in summer, and the stream may completely dry up. Summer mornings can be pleasant and it is great fun to play in the stream during warm weather. Climb around the waterfall and then slide down the natural shoot.
