Thanks to Instagram, you’re surely familiar with Arizona’s Wave (#thewavearizona). But few have heard of the Candy Cliffs at Yant Flat, though the two were carved by hands of Mother Nature with equal consideration. Located just within the boundaries of the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, in the Cottonwood Canyon Wilderness.
The mind-melting Candy Cliffs is a place that words and photos can’t accurately describe. From this vantage, hikers can see many of Greater Zion’s most iconic landmarks, from the white cliffs of Zion and Sand Hollow Reservoir to nearby Cottonwood Canyon, and even the city lights of St. George.
