Fun and easy hike while connecting into hidden canyon. Made a nice day combining scrambling, hiking, scenic views and some off-trail adventures if combine these two hikes.

I love exploring slot canyons. What I like about this trail is that when hiking the loop you hike through several different slot canyons. Non of them look alike. Each has their own uniqueness. I enjoyed hiking counterclockwise. I got some great pictures.

This is such a cool slot canyon hike! Went at the very end of November and a lot of the creek was completely iced over. But if you’re slow and careful, you can still see a good bit of the slot canyons! The road to get there is pretty rough, but definitely do-able in AWD.

It was cool to see, but the rim has the same views the entire time.

Very easy trail, family friendly.

Great slot canyon off the beaten path. No crowd and you may see no one. We went all the way to the end climbing all the ropes and obstacles. Very fun and challenging for me. Getting back down the rope sections was the toughest. I highly recommend doing this for a great adventure and to experience a beautiful and uncrowded canyon.

Did this loop in about 4hrs, hit all
The canyons, I’m a photographer to the photos were awesome! A lot better than dealing with the overpopulated slot canyons in AZ, and permitted. Some of the canyons get pretty tight so squeezing is required in some places and I am pretty fit. Had my camera backpack and had to remove to move forward through some areas. Hiking some of the trail can be strenuous through the sand so be prepared. But if you want beautiful slot canyons for photography, these are excellent!

incredible hike. Love being Down Under the hoodoos. Steep beginning and end but I hiked it with my three year old and nine year old and they did fine.

Great way to see the Bryce canyon Hoodoos. Spectacular views. Crowded trail. It was in the high 30s - low 40s with clear blue sky. We went counter clockwise so I think the uphill this way wasn't as steep. In any case plan on getting out of breath on the way up. Hiking is a must while in Bryce canyon and this is a great option if you don't have too much time.

Did this on November 22, 2018. Amazing hike with great views of Bryce Canyon. Additional it snowed while hiking up which made it a little tricky but loved it as well.

Beautiful to visit early morning with the rising sun!

Easy trail. Frozen waterfall.

Easy. Good to do on a day when you wanna do a bunch of stuff. Pretty

We purchased this app and were so glad to have its GPS for the start of the hike, between slots of Peekaboo and Spooky, and for getting back to main trail after Dry Fork. Footprints/trails criss-cross all over the place between slots. I echo last two reviewer's advice. Wonderful time for our family; the youngest, age 6, ate it up.

We enjoyed this trail. Wonderful view at the end and a distant petroglyph in the middle.

Nice relaxing hike to the falls. Stayed cool the entire time, falls were beautiful. Not as pretty now that all the leaves have fallen from the trees.

It was a lovely drive with lots of viewpoints. I did every other viewpoint driving toward Rainbow Point and then the rest driving back so I wouldn’t be stopping at every single one and so I had something to do on the way back.

This was a nice trail. It was colder so there weren’t many people at all. It goes over a wash and up to a fork where you can see a waterfall (no waterfall right now) and the mossy cave. The cave is certainly mossy and there’s an info sign that says it’s covered in icicles in the winter. The trailhead is fairly easy to find. Go east on 12 and around one of the bends is a parking area with a sign and a little shack.

Great pics with mid day sun.
Traffic jam in spooky at the choke stones.
Perfect weather!

Great easy hike for the family.
Deer In the valley and fish in the creek!
Great color on the walls with the afternoon sun.

Water in the slot kept it interesting.
Be prepared with neoprene socks and dry cloths for the hike out. Amazing texture in the rocks

Hiked on 11/3/18. This was an amazing trail that was 6.5 miles according to my girlfriend’s Garmin watch. It took us right under 3 hours while taking breaks at the nature guide spots. (Nature guide is found in brown sign in box 10/10 recommended picking one up as it points out many cool things). This hike was beautiful the entire way and had to stop many times just to take in the view. It was a very comfortable hike -warm in the sun, cool and refreshing in the shade (which there was a lot of). This all sand trail was easy to walk and came to a beautiful waterfall. Walk to the far right side of the waterfall to gaze at the hanging gardens, if you look closely you can see where the water is seeping from the rocks/ hanging gardens.

While in this region we combined Devils Garden (down Hole in the Rock Road - just drive down the road and can explore Devils Garden for as long as you want - we took 30 minutes there), and Grosvenor Arch (in Cannonville which is on the way to Calf Creek if coming from Kanab. Took 30 minutes to drive to off of the main road and 25 to explore - you can drive up to it)

Incredible and otherworldly hike.

I would recommend bringing climbing rope for the 20ft. climb into Peekaboo—close to the top, there was little to hold onto (of course your first climber might have to go rope-less).

In Spooky, there’s a part of the trail where you come to 4-5 fallen boulders. There are a couple of holes to drop down to continue the trail. We used the hole on the left. The drop is only about 8-9 feet, but it’s dark. There are ropes lodged beneath the boulders to help you lower yourself down. Spooky is aptly named! It gets very, very narrow. Not for the claustrophobic.

Dirt road from Hwy 12 to trailhead turn off was in good shape. Last mile to trailhead was in poor shape.

The beginning of Peek a Boo wasn't marked. Fortunately we saw someone scrambling up the +15' pour off into Peek a Boo. We helped each other to get up the face -- very challenging and a bit scary. Once we were in the canyon, we ran into a few more pour offs. but they were manageable and dry.

After exiting Peek a Boo, we used our GPS to help route us to the entrance of Spooky. GPS was very helpful! Spooky was equally as beautiful as Peek a Boo but much narrower! In addition Spooky required us to crawl down several drop downs (about 6-8' each) in between boulders. One drop down had some ropes which were very helpful. In the narrow areas, we had to remove our packs and we still were rubbing on both our fronts and backs to get through the canyon.

It was a spectacular adventurous hike. I'd highly recommend doing it as a group with at least one athletic person who can scramble up the +15' Peek a Boo entrance and then help the others up. A GPS will also provide peace of mind since the frequency of trail markers low.

An Indiana Jones adventure for a couple of 60 pluses. Scenery outstanding— had a bit of help finding peek a boo slot opening — didn’t always see the trail cairns running down to it from the parking lot- if u have never done any canyon scrambling is good to get a few pointers. Entered peek a boo and a kind man told us the value of using your back and feet to brace yourself and move up and down in tight places —

After then getting up the steep short entry — we were fine — was awesome plot in the slot and a real adventure because of how narrow it was

Exiting is easier if u see the cairn marking a short scramble up the canyon wall as opposed to going thru the last very narrow part of the slot.

Then follow the cairns across to spooky— spooky is narrower but easier as u r going downhill — there is a tough spot where boulders have fallen in and u go down thru a hole and grab a rope to lower yourself down — after that the canyon gets super narrow and I went sideways quite a long way to get thru — wiggled thru in a couple places — not for the claustrophobic for sure.

Exited and the way out was easy and marked with the stone cairns.

This was a super ad entire for someone who has never been in a slot canyon — a real adventure for sure — helps to have some level of upper body fitness as well as the hiking fitness level

Thanks again to the guy at the bottom who gave us a couple canyoning skills — helped immensely!!!
