I really enjoyed this trail and it's awesome views. Word of warning: going on foot the whole way from the lot can be very taxing as the sand is fine and often deep. Once in a while you get lucky and the sand is very compacted or only a couple inches deep before rock, and you can pick up the pace. Often though, it takes much more effort than a standard beach.

We started hiking from the lot and it's not too bad since you're going mostly downhill. The return can really zap your energy though, but well worth it even ignoring the canyon: from the mountains in the distance to the cool and unique sand color against the vegetation.

The canyon itself is so unique, especially if you've never been in a slot-canyon like this before. Also, if you're a photographer, bringing a monopod (at the least) would be a good idea since it can get pretty dark in there. I had to go down to 1/20sec frequently at f5.6

Fun trail. Road in is a Sandy mess and 4wd is a must. Once you get there it is awesome!

I had to park and walk to the slot. Totally worth it! But try not to go on a hot day, no shade.

Of the many trails that I have hiked in Zions east rim, this nu far is three most beautiful and majestic of them all. Except for the length perhaps this trail is technically easy with no climbing. That's not to say that the views to the north, to the south, and into Zion s Canyon are not breathtaking - they are! This may be my favorite hike ever. As stated in previous recordings the actual trail deviates from what is shown on the map but is easy to follow. I ran in to Senegal groups during the hike, but it was a mostly overcast day so the temperature was great for an August day. You won't want to miss this one.

We turned down the gravel road to this trail and we were immediately confronted by a cranky man and his dog asking why we were on private property. We followed the directions on the map exactly. I couldn't tell if he had a gun so we apologized and left. You also have to drive through a creek with water or hike though it. There is a really awesome hike a few miles up the highway with nicer neighbors. Suggest you try that one.

Started at sunrise. This is a gravel road until you get to the Gulch. Wow! What a view! The trail is easy to navigate since it is also an ATV trail. Didn't see the sun until I got back to the trailhead. Not a lot to see along the way but I did see a wild turkey and a couple of mule deer. The view is worth the walk though.

Great easy hike! Push on climb the ropes and keep going. We turned around after climbing the second rope.
Somehow my track got deleted :(

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.
