Terrace Canyon - Favorite Canyon in Red Rock

A trip to Terrace Canyon is always special. Right now it's even better with water flowing over the cliffs and walls. Terrace Canyon is located in Pine Creek Canyon. It's a level 3 hike with lots of fun bouldering. Here's some quick directions: From Pine Creek trailhead, follow the trail into the south fork of Pine Creek Canyon. When the canyon divides, scramble into the south fork. Boulder through the canyon about 30 minutes until a large canyon opens from the south. Boulder up this canyon to Terrace Canyon.
You can climb out of the canyon to Terrace Canyon Peak or hike through Hidden Canyon to Rainbow Wall. But many will want to relax in the beauty of the canyon.
If you have never been to this magical place, I encourage you to go.
