I thought this would be a great hike but I was surprised that this was one of the top 5 hikes I’ve ever done. We went up about 3 miles and the trees, water, and canyon walls were breathtaking. It’s a pretty easy hike...at lest the 6 miles round trip we completed.

Great surprise with this trail as the cool water was refreshing and the rocks were spectacular. I would not rate it difficult as long as you don't mind walking in some sand at the beginning. Very serene and private!

walked about 3 miles upstream in October and it was the most spectacular hike of a week of hiking various trails near Kanab. Beautiful fall colors, just enough water to make it interesting and grand Canyon walls.

The slot canyon was quite beautiful but do not expect to exit the canyon that way. Easier to find a game trail out of the canyon, if you plan on leaving through the north end. The north half has no water source so pack a good 6-7 liters. Wasn't the prettiest place to backpack but still worth a go at least once.
