The views alone are worth the trip. Aside from the dramatic panorama of Pine Valley to the Hurricane Cliffs, visitors will find a shady kiosk featuring colorful interpretive signage, a depiction of geologic descriptions, a map of the entire park and a restroom.

Confluence Park, Washington County’s 344-acre natural park where Ash Creek and LaVerkin Creek meet the Virgin River, has been a popular spot for walkers, hikers, bicyclists and photographers since its official opening in 2013. Purchased with donations from a variety of local, state, national and private funding organizations and agencies who believed this location needed to be conserved and protected, the park is now owned by Washington County. It is managed through the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve office.
