Note, did this on December 18, 2014. I wanted to see how far I could walk down this slot canyon. Turns out unless I had wading gear, or was willing to go waist deep in cold water, I couldn't even get 1/4 mile from the confluence at wire pass. If you want to see this, go via wire pass trail...

Longest slot canyon in the world. The first couple of miles ease you into it (though evidently there are steeper entries than the one we did). Unfortunately we didn't get to go as far as we liked because it was filled with mud and puddles and the couple we were with weren't up for wading through the muck. But what... More

Took the Buck Skin Gulch tour through Grand Circle tours. The Gulch has a very wide variety of rock formations, colors, terrain to explore. The hike can be a little tricky in a couple of spots to get through but with time and patience I believe these spots can be overcome. Two spots in particular require one to get down... More

i liked that there are not so many tourists like zion or bryce canyon .. so if you want to be more remote and you have no permit for the wave yet ;-) do that

Having hiked this area many times I can say I never get bored doing this over and over again. 14 miles of slot canyon and great scenery and unusual rock formations.

We parked at Whitehouse Campground and had the Dodson’s from Paria Outpost (highly recommend) give us a ride to Wirepass trailhead. We started at 7:30am and took off from Wirepass. Once in the slot canyon, there are no landmarks or GPS signal to gauge how far you have traveled. I did have a map showing middle route, the cease pool... More

We tried to draw out for the wave three times but didn't make it. Buckskin is really worth hiking. It isn't strenuous but is really beautiful. We went in about seven miles so about fourteen round trip. There was a little mud from the previous days rain but nothing that caused problems.

Buckskin Gulch is fantastic. We entered though Wire Pass which was a great slot that consisted of an easy wash hike with a choke stone, boulder scramble, and an easy downclimb. When we were there Buckskin was blissfully dry; usually there is muddy hiking, wading, and swims involved. My husband thought Wire Pass was fantastic but got bored with Buckskin... More

Beautiful slot canyon, but a bit rugged to get down into. Only the truly hearty can make it past the cesspools.

It was a beautiful hike. We did it as a day hike with our four children. We went in through wire pass and then to Buckskin Gulch! We went in probably two miles before it was too muddy and no rocks to jump to:). Wire Pass is 1.7 miles so the kids were done hiking anyway. Beautiful hike would love... More
