With over 60 official trails, the recently created Red Cliffs Desert Reserve offers recreation and enjoyment in approximately 62,000 acres of beautiful red rock country. Located in southwestern Utah adjacent to the city of St George, the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve area has always been a haven for desert plants and wildlife.One of the main purposes of the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve is to protect unique animals and plants, especially the endangered desert tortoise. (Off-road vehicles are prohibited in most areas within the Reserve). With nearly 100 square miles available in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, hikers, bikers, horseback riders, rock climbers, and photographers all are able to share in the beauty and magic that the Reserve has to offer-from its colorful canyons to its mesa tops and vistas.Hiking and Biking in the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve includes 60 trail descriptions covering roughly 200 miles of trails, complete with: directions to trailheads, hiking times required, distances, elevations, trail conditions, major attractions, biking possibilities, five maps, and dozens of photos.One-half of the author's proceeds from this book are donated to protect the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve.
