Amazing. First time in Utah. The hikes are rich in colored rock. One of my favorites. Research weather and quick sand before this trail. Dress appropriate for taking a dip on a hot day.

A pleasant, beautiful and mostly flat hike. The trail starts after the "no collections" sign and can be found easily following footsteps. It follows the wash for the first 2.5 miles or so. The trail divides there, take a left to go to Zebra. You will find the entrance easily following footsteps. If you hang a right, you can do an extra loop and enter tunnel canyon from the other side. Tunnel canyon is generally filled with water and unless you are prepared to get wet and/or cold it is advisable to approach it from the zebra side. It is close to the zebra entrance, towards the right when coming towards zebra. Btw, we did the long loop and explored an adjacent wash. This was quite beautiful; however, there was quicksand (fiancé momentarily slipped in knee-deep), so be careful.

A bit of a hike for the shortness of the slot but we were doing 7 hikes in two days and this one was en route so we added it.

Zebra Slot is incredible...but short. Still, it's worth seeing. We hiked it in April 2015 and everything was dry making the hike through the wash especially grueling on the way back. I found a website that tried to explain doing both slots as a loop but we must have dropped down too soon and ended up having to hike a LOT in the wash. Even though it's not a looooong hike, our legs were pretty tired. But, man is it pretty...and the Moqui Marbles are so cool...just take your time and enjoy the views.
