Nice short slot canyon for beginners. We took an all ages party of 20 and had a great time. We had a tough time with a spot at the beginning. Maybe it has become worse after a flash flood the other day.

Eventually we were able to get all but my mother with knee and hip issues up the problem spot and go the rest of the way to the rope climb section which we turned around at. Someone needs to come in with a big pry bar to knock the Boulder down that is causing the issue.

We went about 10 am and it was not hot till we got out of the canyon and had to make the hot half mile to our cars.

Very worth it. We were all alone on the trail and that made it really fun. If it was busy it might be a chore.

Great directions by Lynn except that you turn at the elementary school not the high school. Took a crew from 3 years to 70 through with no real problems. A few scrambling spots where a 20-foot length of rope helps but there are few straps hanging there as well.

Walking in the dry river bed through soft sand was challanging especially with the summer heat and sun blazing on us and the wind blowing the sand into our eyes. We didn't quite make it to the end of the trail where the red hollows were. Looking at the pictures here I kinda wish we would have trucked a bit father.
Hint: stay on the river bed, don't take the trails that lead off to the right, you'll burn up your energy before you get to the good stuff

Orderville is not known for labeling its streets so here's a tip on finding the trail head. Coming north on hwy 89 you'll make a right on road 100E...which isn't marked but is the same road as the high school and cemetery. Follow to the T and make a left...the road will curve right. Follow just a few hundred feet and at the next curve is where you can park OR if you have a 4x4 (something that can handle some deep sand) then continue on the sandy, unpaved road toward the water tower and park there. Hike the trail down and turn left...continue straight up the big wash (to the left) toward the red cliffs. Trail will dead end at the slots.

It's actually a very short hike and easily managed by anyone in decent health (obviously slightly longer if you need to park on the road by the new houses). It was spring break when we hiked it so we came across a few groups with kids who managed to scramble up the 3-4 boulders in the slots without issue. Great photo ops and a nice warm-up hike. On a side note, there's a nice German Bakery less than a mile up the road that serves lunch and great pastries...always a great treat after hike.
