We love hiking slot canyons, this one doesn't get extremely narrow but add the creek and a few waterfalls and some moss covered slides and you have a winner. The water is cold all year. There is a long walk on a dirt road before you get to the slot so don't give up. After the first fall it opens... More

I like canyons...I really like slot canyons. This one is pretty cool -- once you get to it. It is not in the National Park but is in a town (Kanarraville) between Cedar City and Kolob Canyons. The start of this is a parking lot where you pay $10 to park. (you can park down by the city hall for... More

Skipped the crowds of Zion to do this fun 4 hour hike through a creek winding through a slot canyon. We did not set out until mid-afternoon on a Friday, but seemed to miss the majority of the crowds (so our photos did not have lots of strangers in it). Park in the pay lot and happily give up $10/car... More

this was an amazing hike. It was really easy to get to. Hike is about 4 miles round trip. You could make it longer but we turned around not to far after the last set of falls. The falls and slot canyons are breathtaking. You do have to hike through water if you want to see the falls. There are... More

Great hiking through a small stream/creek. Very young children will have difficulty. I would recommend 7 or older. Moderately busy in late May. Water was still fairly cold (high 50's). Free parking is available about 4 blocks away (west) @ City Hall. Parking @ Trailhead is $10. Port-a-potties are available @ the trailhead and @ the city park next to... More

Just got back from doing this hike a few days ago.The slot sections are very nice and the not so tight areas are nice too, but not so impressive. I was hoping for a lot of ice to walk on and got it in the wider sections with slower currents. Unfortunately, in the slot sections the current is faster and... More

The start of the hike in Kanarraville Utah (just north of the Kolob Section of Zion NP) is easy to find. The hike itself is straightforward and beautiful. There are some nice falls to climb, slides to play on, and slot canyons to admire. The ten dollar parking fee imposed by the town is a blatant ripoff. It might not... More

This was an awesome experience with the entire family. You start off on a dirt hiking trail which leads to a creek. Once you reach the creek, it is your choice whether you want to hike the dirt trail or hike in the creek. The majority of the creek is less than 1 foot deep, but it can get up... More

This hike is close to the North Kolob Canyon section of Zions. You take I-15 and exit at the Kanarraville exit and go into the town. On the main street about XX South you turn left at a sign that says River hike. There’s a parking lot at the end of the road with a self pay station that costs... More

I believe Kanarra Creek that TA is referring to is in Kanarraville which is not in Zion Nat'l Park. This hike was great. If you get into Kanarraville drive down the main road and you will undoubtably see a sign directing you to the parking lot. They charge $10 to park. From the parking lot it is my estimation that...
