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.

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.

I prefer a climb and more of challenge, but in the desert on a hot day a beautiful flat canyon trail with significant shady sections is pretty much perfect.
