St. George was tracking another dragon, this time through red sands. He headed into the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, following the trail down to the bottom, where he was pleased to find evidence of the dragon's passing at the point the red sands parted briefly. While studying the dragon's tracks, St. George noticed movement to the north, near a white-topped red rock not very far away. He carefully wound his way over to the rock and quickly captured the hiding dragon.


4-Wheel Drive with high clearance: Take the I-15 Washington Parkway Exit. Head west. At the sharp left turn, find a path around the signs and go straight ahead onto the dirt road. Head .6 miles and take a right at the fire hydrant. Another .4 miles up that road, and you can park at the Dino Cliffs trailhead.

Car or Mountain Bike: Take the I-15 Washington Parkway Exit. Head west, and take the sharp turn to your left (Buena Vista). Follow the road around and take a right on Graham Manor. Follow that road all the way to the end to the clubhouse parking lot. From there, look to the north and find the fire hydrant. Head up .4 miles from the hydrant to the Dino Cliffs trailhead.


  1. We didn't locate the letterbox. I am not positive if we were in the correct area. When we followed the trail down to the bottom, it went down a steep hill but couldn't figure out where the rock was.

  2. It doesn't sound like you were in the right spot. If you didn't find the dinosaur tracks at the bottom of the hill, it wasn't the right place. Better luck next time!

  3. One year later and I finally went back and found the letterbox. Yeah! We were at the turnoff one too soon. It was so simple once I was in the right place. Thanks! So fun!
