Red Cliffs Desert Reserve

Saves: 19
Check-ins: 10
The seemingly sparse land is a protected area for a diverse array of plants and wildlife. It's the merging of three important ecosystems - the Mojave Desert, Great Basin, and Colorado Plateau. It's home to the desert tortoise, Gila monster, sidewinder, rattlesnake, and chuckwalla. Plants include blackbrush and other shrubs that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The Reserve was established in 1996 to protect this important habitat. To get to the Visitor Center, take the I-15 to Route 34 and go west. About one mile up, turn right on N 200 E; you'll see the center on your right side a short distance ahead. (Submitted by Ashley Poirier)
