This is a strenuous hike but well worth the trip. I am certain an ATV will get you there quicker, just like a train ride will get you to the top of Pikes Peak a lot faster, but where is the satisfaction in that? We completed the hike from the Peekaboo Canyon lot just North of Kanab to the entrance to Red Canyon in about an hour. We followed ATV trail 102. We thought 102L would be quicker but it wasn't. Too many ups and downs. Not pleasant in deep fine sand. The slot canyon was amazing. We ate a quick lunch at the site and hiked back staying on 102 in about an hour. Difficult but doable.

The directions to this trail lead me through someone's property which was blocked off. We were excited to stop here on our trip from Utah to Arizona but since the gate was blocked off at the old trading post we had to skip it.

Wonderful alternative route to Observation Point, but a couple of points that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere! 1) The sign at the trailhead says it is 3.3 miles (6.6 RT)...my Fitbit and phone clocked it at 9.5 miles round trip. Much longer than posted! 2) BRING BUG SPRAY. Swarms of flies literally everywhere and they will follow you down the length of the trail - it would have been much more pleasant without them and 3) The first mile or so on the return trip is entirely uphill - not too difficult but something I wasn't expecting.

We hiked this trail with 7 adults and 8 kids between the ages of 1-5. We only made it to the boulders before the rope in the slot canyon, but it was a blast for the kids and everyone enjoyed the hike. With the little legs it took us about an hour and a half to do the first half of the trail, in and out. We'll definitely do this hike again when we're headed down highway 89 and need a place for the kids to stretch their legs.

Must have four wheeler to get to this trail

My sister and I were lucky to have hitched a ride to the canyon on a razor, this is definitely not a drive for a vehicle without 4WD and even then I would recommend renting or finding someone with an ATV. The roads can get a bit confusing, for the most part just keep to the left the entire way. The canyons are short, beautiful and very worth it!

A waterfall is a great reward for any hike and this one is spectacular. Sandy trail with gradual climb allows for ability to absorb the views while hiking. I was the Easter week and there were only 8-10 others hikers that I passed. It took about 1 hr 45 min to the falls.
Highly recommend.

Short and Sweet. Had the family and turned around at the rope grab. Since the narrows were closed in Zion, this was a great 2nd option. We were also the only ones out there. 3.29.17

So the actual trail does not reflect what shows up on GPS. So, don't trust your phone, apps, or GPS. Trust the trail and trail signs and you'll be fine. Great view at the end, but the hike itself is not the most scenic.

Thanks to the previous reviews, we had directions and knew we needed 4 wheel drive.
We parked and took our razor in 4x4 to the trailhead. It was about 4 miles, then hiked with young kids. My 6 year old loves it. The hike was simple, other than a few tall rocks we had to boost the little one up. Great views!

Super sweet! Defiantly worth your time! The sand can get deep driving out, but it's honestly not that bad...

One of my favorite hikes I did along with several more on a Zion trip with my friend Guy. We stayed for about a week and did this hike on the 3rd day. We didn't want to do an out and back so we did this point to point. Guy asked me "How do we get back to the car?". I said "we hitch hike, someone will give us a ride". At the age of 52 he had never hitchhiked in his life. It worked out well.... The hike is incredible and actually has a beautiful little slot canyon we had no idea was there. The biggest surprise on the way was a boy scout troop doing an over night hike. One of the guys with them was in his mid seventies 5 miles out and hiking with 2 canes, not hiking sticks. He was obviously in a lot of pain but had the biggest smile on his face you've ever seen. We enjoyed talking with him. I'll post up a pic of where we crossed paths. Awesome hike if you get the chance...do it! Zion is only #2 behind the Grand Canyon for hiking in my book.

Supposedly beautiful...if you can get there! There is a 4 mile deep sand road to get to the canyon. Our rental Jeep 4 wheel drive got mired in sand about halfway there. We were ultimately able to get free with the kind help of the folks from our Bnb and an outfitter who happened by. A lot of digging and pushing got us turned around. A hot dusty 3 hour adventure but no canyon. A big 4WD truck got stuck without getting as far as we did. If you don't mind a long hot hike in and out, go for it. Otherwise, make sure you have the right vehicle.

Great hike to break up some driving time .

Beautiful but brutal! The canyon is gorgeous but the hike to and from is very hot, exposed, and is mostly deep sand. Its a real trudge up and down 15ft sand dunes that are not shown on the map. There are many ATVs and 4x4s, some of which brought back fellow exhausted hikers. Also note: The last 1/4 mile of the slot canyon has been blocked by boulders.
