View of Diamond Fork Canyon from Red Ledges Picnic...


Popular for camping, fishing, and hunting, Diamond Fork Canyon has some rock and a little winter ice climbing as well. Besides abundant wildlife, watch for range cattle and the occasional harmless Blow Snake. Keep an eye out for rattlesnakes as well.

Drinking water is available during the summer months at Diamond Campground (click here for reservations).

If you want a good place to bring the whole family for the day and still get your climbing fix in, this is a good place. There are trails to hike, fishing in the river visible from the routes, or rappelling from 30 to 100 feet. Surprisingly not a very busy place. Also shady belay spots.
