Orderville is not known for labeling its streets so here's a tip on finding the trail head. Coming north on hwy 89 you'll make a right on road 100E...which isn't marked but is the same road as the high school and cemetery. Follow to the T and make a left...the road will curve right. Follow just a few hundred feet and at the next curve is where you can park OR if you have a 4x4 (something that can handle some deep sand) then continue on the sandy, unpaved road toward the water tower and park there. Hike the trail down and turn left...continue straight up the big wash (to the left) toward the red cliffs. Trail will dead end at the slots.

Nice easy hike. Definitely no need for 4wd to get to water tower.

Cool and short trail to check out some slot canyons, sure it would be great for a family. Was able to drive all the way up to "water tower" (which is definetly more of a water treatment building than a tower.)

CAUTION: You will need to bring a rope and/or have someone assist you (or wear canyoneering shoes) up a 10’-12’ incline to complete this slot canyon. We went earlier this morning (Nov 15, 2020) and were able to make it most of the way. Approximately 3/4 the way into the canyon, there is an approximate 10’-12’ incline where a shredded rope was tied around a rock at the top. The rope was less than a foot long and pretty much worthless now. It’s a very short but fun slot canyon with several narrow sections up to that point though. In my opinion, most families will be able to do this trip & gave a lot of fun! Enjoy!

Four stars only because the sand for the first 2/3rds is annoying!! You walk in a sandy creekbed until you get to the slot canyon and then its super super beautiful. Worth it for such a short hike. I did this around 430PM and finished before the sun set. Also, drove in just fine in a honda civic

the rock climb with the ripe was more difficult than we expected. a lot of sand walking up to the canyon and canyon itself was fairly short, but still a nice quick stop. nice and cool in the canyon.

Easy trail. Sandy most of the way. Variation of things to see. small white sand dune, red dunes and a slot canyon. Pretty good payoff for a short hike

Short, sandy hike through a shaded canyon that would be better during the day, as the whole trail is shaded and cold in the morning. Great slot canyon at the end that is kind of tricky navigating.

The road leading up to the trail is totally doable. I have a prius c and it was fine. A few gnarly climbs with ropes. Definitely a little more difficult than I realized, but it was totally worth it.

A short easy hike. Some wonderful rock formations along the way to the slot. The slot itself is short unless you can use the rope to get up further. I tried, but couldn't get a safe hand grip on the smooth rock on the top. Got some good pics. If you want longer cooler slots, go to peekaboo and spooky on the hole in the rock road.

HikingGreat!

We rented an AirBnb in Orderville and this trail was right behind our cabin. We "hiked" it a couple of times while here on vacation. Getting to the slot canyon is a tad annoying through the sand (I HATE SAND haha) But once you reach the slot canyon it is super cute and fun to play around inside. Trail is not marked very well. Once you get to a fork you will see some white sand hills and white sandstone pillars in front of you and what looks like a dried up sandy creek bed, go left to reach the slot canyon.

Great place! The canyon makes you feel like you are in Indiana Jones. After a short way into the slot canyon there is a rope to climb to get to the next section. I tried this and it was easy to get to the top but wasn't sure if I could actually climb over the boulder above it. I was by myself so gave up. But was still worth checking it!

Not necessarily a trail that you don’t want to miss. You can actually drive to the trailhead and not park along the road. This saves you about .6mi round trip, no shade. However, there is very limited parking at the TH. Once in the trail, All Trails maps the hike in the dried creek as the highlight, but the narrows are at the end. Very sandy trail and the narrows are tight and require some climbing (plus very narrow squeezes). Not an enjoyable trail for us as once we got in the narrows, the first obstacle had a group of people ahead who were taking their time and instead of standing around waiting on them at each inevitable climb, we opted to turn back. So this was not as fun as it could have been, preferably on a weekday, early, and not a holiday. Take lots of water and don’t go if it’s raining.

Great hike! The rope section was a little sketchy but worth it to see the rest of the canyon.

If you’re looking for a less traveled narrows hike, this is the one for you! A bit sandy at the beginning, but not terrible. The hike itself is easy, but if you want to get to the end you’ll have to climb a few obstacles with rope holds and tight crevices. If you’re any sort of agile/athletic you’ll be fine. Follow the river if you get lost, it’s the cavern all the way back towards the left, with a bit of red in the rocks. Loved this trail!!

Sunny hike in sand to the narrows. The canyons and rock formations are very pretty as you approach the slot. Journeying through the slot canyon was such a great experience. There was only one other group there but left as soon as we entered so we had the whole place to ourselves. My wife was able to get through with my 1.5 year old using a front infant carrier. My 3 year old loved climbing up the rocks. We made it as far as the first rope but it was too technical with small children. There were lots of wasp flying around inside the canyon. We left them alone and they did the same.

So fun for kids! Soft sand all the way to the narrows. My husband, three kids, ages 12, 9, and 4, hiked all the way up to where the path gets very narrow, right before the next part of the trail. Only myself, the 12, and 9 year old were able to make it up to this portion because of the narrowness. My husband is about 200 pounds and felt he’d get stuck. We passed through the most narrow part where there was supposed to be a rope to climb up to the next portion of the trail, unfortunately, the rope was torn and unreachable, so we had to stop there.

If you are wondering if it is worth the hike even if you don’t climb the rope obstacle, the answer is yes!
