About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This is a short trail on the side of the road at the south end of Snow Canyon. Perfect trail for an early walker with a well marked sand path, no elevation gain and a fun slot canyon that will keep you cool on warm days.

Add a little distance to the trail by going up to the view point which is to the right and up a short steep hill when you arrive to the slot entrance. As you walk into the slot listen for crows and look for

The slot canyon has all kind of fun climbing areas for little kids and pockets in the rocks to hide in. Kids will enjoy the tall walls and how the shade of the slot canyon really is incredibly cool and a blazing hot day.

If you have a kid who hates shoes, this is a trail you can let them run barefoot on. It’s sandy the whole way into the slot. Also consider doing this hike on a windy day because you will be protected once you enter into the slot canyon.

Trail highlights

Natural Play Area, Shaded Hike, and Viewpoint

Playing in the crevices inside the slot canyon is one of the best parts of this trail. Look for lizards and tarantulas on this trail. Beautiful cacti line the trail as well. This is excellent slot canyon training for little kids to get them used to the concept of canyons and canyoneering. Very easy for all ages and no elevation gain so grandparents can do this one too.
