About This Area

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

The approximately 45,000 acres of public land in the Red Cliffs NCA are located in south-central Washington County. The towering Pine Valley Mountains and Dixie National Forest lie to the north, while the communities of Ivins, Santa Clara, St. George, Washington, and Leeds ring the National Conservation Area (NCA). The NCA is an important component of the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, a multi-jurisdictional land base that has been collaboratively managed by BLM, the State of Utah, Washington County, and local municipalities since 1996 to protect populations and habitat of the threatened Mojave Desert tortoise and other at-risk native plant and animal species. – content pulled from the Red Cliff Area website

Shanti Hodges is the Founder of Hike it Baby. Shanti started the organization in Portland, OR in 2013 so she could find friends to hike with. It quickly caught on locally and people started contacting her to help develop hike communities that were baby and toddler focused in other cities. To further support her mission to get families outside, Shanti wrote a book “Hike it Baby: 100 Awesome Outdoor Adventures with Babies and Toddlers.” She is committed to getting local and national parks to be more aware of how they can better support families with babies and newly walking children. Shanti lives in Southern Utah with her husband and son. In her spare time she’s a hike guide and hosts women’s hike retreats
