This trail was fantastic but not located at the road sign for Moonshine Wash. Go 4.7 miles past that sign to the turn off for Three Canyon and take a right if you have good clearance and AWD. We were in a motor home so we parked at the sign and walked the 1 mile to the trail start. We only encountered one other couple out there that were doing an out and back in the canyon. We did the loop and were happy we did. You have to scramble up a section of the canyon wall to get out and eventually scramble back down to do the loop and it was a lot of meandering to stay on course as the trail is not marked well in the sandy areas. It is very exposed out of the canyon and you really do need good guidance with a downloaded map and GPS or a printed topo map and compass, otherwise sticking to the canyon out and back you can’t go wrong. There is much more canyon to explore beyond this route but our hike ended up being 9 miles RT which was enough for us before lunch. We really enjoyed it and do recommend!

I would have given 5 stars for the portion of the slot canyon. We decided to do the loop. we scrambled up the cliff to no visible trail. Followed All Trails app. Without it we were in trouble. Did not like walking on the crust. Did follow some footprints. I would not recommend the loop. I would go down and back up the slot canyon portion.

Excellent loop for those with stemming and smearing skills. No need to disturb the crypto soil on the way out - there is plenty of slick rock to walk on until you find the trail down.

We took the LONG way 15.5 miles for a kick Ass Memorial Weekend hike. Had to scramble a bit. We had ample shade from the bluffs. We only encountered a few groups. With plenty of warning with the echo on the canyon walls. Could definitely go topless

Really nice slot, although the slot portion of this loop isn’t terribly long. Some good drops within the slot but nothing technical or dangerous, just careful foot placement. We did the loop and walked back outside of the canyon across sand and slickrock and really enjoyed the views. 4WD and clearance is needed to get all the way to the trailhead, but you could easily park at the main dirt road and walk in as well.

Very beautiful! The turn off is 5.4 miles after the bridge on the right there is a sign label “Three Canyons” that’s your turn! A vehicle with high clearance could be ok but we walked up and it’s was easy. We did not do the whole loop it was kinda unclear what way to go. The main slot canyon is and awesome out and back.

Would not recommend for large dogs unless you have strong extra hands and/or rope. Nice hike though

Super fun slot canyon. Does require some fairly good scrambling abilities but our 7 year old daughter did fine with some assistance and the older kids loved it. First part is just a sandy wash but then it drops down into the slot. We didn’t do the complete loop as we ran out of time
