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 

Drive seven (7) miles up Diamond Fork Canyon. Look for a paved parking area on the left (north) side of the road. It is another three (3) miles to Three Forks Trail Head (trail head for 5th water hot springs).

Climbing Season
