ST. GEORGE – On Monday, the Bureau of Land Management-Utah St. George Field Office will re-open the Red Cliffs Recreation Area for public use. The area has been closed for repairs after flooding damaged facilities and impaired access last month.
On July 20, a thunderstorm caused flash flooding in Quail and Leeds Creeks, which flow through the Red Cliffs Recreation Area. The flooding carried large boulders, tree trunks and sediment into the area, causing extensive damage to the access road, footbridge across Quail Creek and facilities, as well as demolishing two low-water crossings.
For more information, please contact the BLM-Utah Public Lands Information Center in St. George at 435-688-3200.
