Description 

The Red Ledges Picnic Area is a popular area for rappelling. A couple of sport routes can be found and an ice route “White on Red” even forms once in a while. A large natural arch can be seen from the parking lot called Diamond Fork Arch. There is a paved parking area, picnic tables, and a pit toilet. Red Ledges is a day use only area (6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.) but no use fees are required.

Getting There
