Candy Cliffs at Yant Flat image

The Candy Cliffs at Yant Flat are an out-of-the-way, incredible geological feature with views that rival (and maybe even surpass!) Snow Canyon State Park. The cliffs sit at the base of Pine Valley Mountain, at the north end of the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area. Accessible on a well-groomed dirt road and a hike a little over a mile long, this is one activity you won't forget!

Scout Cave Trail

 (3.6)

As soon as you enter the cave, it is immediately obvious why it has its name - the Native Americans in the area could easily scout out the entire valley from its vantage point. This sandstone feature is unusual for its relatively large size, and the trail is generally easy with just a few short portions that are steep enough to get the heart pumping.
