Southern Utah is home to some of the world’s most breathtaking rock formations, canyons, and mountains. Despite the incredible beauty that one can find throughout the area, a select few hidden gems genuinely stand out. One such place is the Candy Cliffs, located about 45 minutes northeast of St. George.
The Candy Cliffs is a wild and rugged landscape, with vibrant red stripes cutting across a plateau of yellow hoodoos and towering cliffs overlooking Cottonwood Canyon. From this vantage point, visitors can take in sweeping vistas of the surrounding Navajo sandstone formations and the sparkling turquoise waters of Sand Hollow Reservoir. Hidden among the rocks are petroglyphs carved by the ancient Ancestral Puebloans, just waiting to be discovered.
