Paria Rimrocks, Utah
PreviousHoodoos on yellowish-white slickrockNext

The Paria Rimrocks are a line of low cliffs on the north side of the wide Paria River valley, just north of US 89 in far south Utah, and have become quite well known in recent years because of the photogenic hoodoos and other formations along the base; some right at the foot of the cliffs and so easily reached, others higher and less accessible. The main area is served by a BLM trailhead, from where the best hoodoos are half mile away. Rocks forming the upper section of the cliffs are pure white, while the lower sections are dark red, and this abrupt color contrast is reflected in some of the formations.

Location: Along US 89, near the Paria Ranger Station - details
