This is a sweet spot to go rappelling near Spanish Fork, UT. It's located at the Red Ledges in Diamond Fork Canyon. There is a picnic area, grill and restrooms near the base. The unique formations are beautiful to hike around and fun to rappel down.

The hike is pretty short, but steep.  We did the hike several times so we could rappel down multiple times.

Take I-15 to US-6 (Price/Manti) Exit (exit 258) Take the exit east towards the mountains all the way up Spanish Fork canyon for about 11 miles (from the exit) Get in the turning lane for Diamond Fork canyon.  Go down the road for several miles until you see the Red Ledges Picnic Area.
