Pioneer Park has many places for you to rock climb and rappel.  There are lots of anchors on top of Dixie Rock and also on the eastern side of the park near the radio tower.  Climb at your own risk.

Next, is the Little Narrows or St. George Narrows.  This fun mini slot canyon is named after the Zion National Park Narrows hike.  The Little Narrows are a very tight squeeze for me but children and thinner adults could make it through just fine.  The entire mini slot extends for a little ways and you can either exit through the normal route or through the “birth canal”.  Both are fun options but one is tighter as you can imagine! Regardless of how tired and exhausted we were, if we had a ton of fun doing the Trek then it will receive a higher rating. Our little kids did it with ease, it’s the parents you have to worry about.
