Directions from Highway 24: Drive southward on the Notom-Bullfrog Road 7.8 miles to Burro Wash. Park along the road, but beware of deep sand. Do not park in the wash.

Fun trail. A bit long getting to the NP sign & gate but gets better quickly & continues to offer beautiful views & moderate scrambling challenges. A great first slot canyon experience.

Nice introduction to slot canyon hiking with a few impasses where moderate scrambling skills are required. Follow single track instead of wash to save on distance. The trail gets much more enjoyable beyond the first scramble boulder obstacle. Well worth the effort and quite enjoyable. Bring bug spray for the flats and of course plenty of water.
