Slot Canyon is an unmaintained trail off a sand road, far from most visitor traffic. Here, flash floods formed a breathtaking slot canyon. At points, forty-foot high walls arch above a foot-wide canyon floor.

Hot but definitely worth it! Had to maneuver around people a bit but the slot was very cool to look at and walk through... do it! Can be hard to find because the sign is not prominent on the road.

It's not a hard hike, but man, it was worth finding. It was peaceful and there are plenty of crevices to explore. It's family friendly also. It's not hard to find. The sign says "The Slot" go straight down into the canyon and turn left.

This trail is beyond over-crowded. plan on waiting in line to get through the tight confined spaces because everyone goes through then immediately turns around and comes back through the other direction to congest the canyon even further. people park and drive like idiots on the entire dirt road to the trail head. beautiful trail throughthe landscape but hard to enjoy with the constant need to get out of the way or be in the way of the other 50+ people continuously flowing through the Slot. We ended up going off trail the last 3/4 mile just to avoid the crowd.
