Red Cliffs and Quail Creek Reservoir state parks are a
popular combined trip. Located 39 miles from Cedar City and
only 3 miles from each other. These parks offer the best of
both red rock and water activities. The climate here differs
considerably from that of Cedar City. With average temperatures
typically 10 degrees higher. Red Cliffs is an amazing
concentration of red and orange color hills and canyons that
invite the adventurous to explore. The main canyon hike leads
along Quail Creek to pools trapped by the rock formations.
Rock climbing and repelling opportunities abound in the park.
For those who prefer more leisurely activity, picnic tables
and fire pits are available for a small fee. It's a great place
for overnight camping as well.
Approximately 3 miles downstream and across I-15, Quail Creek
empties into Quail Creek Reservoir; strikingly blue and contrast in
the surrounding landscape. Here you can picnic, swim, tan and
participate in various water sports. Restrooms, pavilions and
fine beaches are available these areas. The quickest route is to
take I-15 south to leeds, exit 23. Then follow the main street
south through town until you see signs to the parks.
