Leprechaun Slot Canyon begins at a canyon that soon narrows into a nice slot before narrowing even more. At the junction with the East Fork it leads up to an "inscription chamber" where people have left their names scratched into the wall over the last 50 years. The slot becomes restrictive but doable in areas.

Surprising slot and very, very accessible — right off the highway. Does get quite narrow and requires a bit of creativity in places, but is not considered technical!
