The Sandstone Quarry Trail is a fun, short, family friendly trail that passes along next to the Red Hill Golf Coarse in downtown St George. This trail is suitable for small children (with help in a couple of places), and leads to a cool little historic site where a monument has been erected by the Sons of the Utah Pioneers. The Sandstone Quarry was where they quarried rock for many of the historic buildings in town, including the St George LDS Temple and Tabernacle, the Historic Courthouse (Daughters of Utah Pioneers Museum), the Washington Cotton Mill and many other buildings and homes. This hike provides beautiful desert views along side luscious golf course greenery.
