In 1996 an impressive coalition of federal and state land managers, cities, environmental groups, and local counties realized the need to protect the fragile ecosystem of southwestern Utah, so they united to create the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. Some 62,000 acres were set aside to protect animals like the desert tortoise—federally listed as threatened—and other varieties of wildlife on the state’s Sensitive Species List of animals that have become increasingly pressured by rapid population growth and heightened recreational land use. Today, the reserve represents a magnificent opportunity for some of the best desert camping and hiking in the state. Start your adventure by staying at Red Cliffs Campground. It’s the ideal place to get hydrated and rest up for a day of desert hiking. Although temperatures in the reserve can soar well above 100°F in the summer, you’ll find some relief at Red Cliffs.
