We discovered this place after speaking with the chamber of commerce. She mentioned the road could be rough. It is dirt road, wash out was huge. We made it threw! After driving for a while, we reached the starting point and hiked down the dry bed to an amazing slot canyon. At one point there is a 6 foot drop... More

We did this hike from the Wire Pass Trailhead to just short of the Paria River confluence where we climbed out and headed cross-country to the Wave and back to the car. Be very aware of weather conditions due to the possibility of flash flooding and the extremely limited access to higher ground in the event of a flash flood.... More

Great slot canyon hike that is really very pleasant. Long enough to tire you some but very doable for most people. Beautiful does not describe it well enough. Highly recommend this one. Keep an eye out for native American rock art.

World's longest continuous slot canyon. In a single day we did Wire Pass to White House - all 21 miles! One of my favorite hikes from last year. I had to do it after Backpacker Magazine called it America's most dangerous hike! Check out the video of the 3 guys getting caught in a flash flood on You Tube.

Amazing beauty, but beware of dangers and long hike out. This is not a hike for novice hikers or ones that aren't ready to get a long hike in. The hike we did from beginning to end was over 20 miles, very wet and draining. You need to be ready for anything!

We did many slot canyons last month, all beautiful and different, but this is still my favorite. We entered from the road and from Wire Pass, both great hikes. If day hiking, start early, and go as far as you can toward the confluence with the Paria. Every turn opens on new beauty.

Terrific time hiking through the canyon and camping overnight. We camped at wire pass the night before starting (and left one car here) and hiked 13+ miles through the canyons. Just beautiful! For the first 4-5 miles, we did not encounter any water that we could not hike around -- but then -- no choice but to just deal w/the... More

Did this one from the top of The Dive thru Buckskin & out via Wire Pass. Great adventure! You'll need to get dropped off at The Dive and get your vehicle or get picked up when you leave after Wire Pass. Dive is a good 1000 feet higher than where you enter Buckskin. Would be a challenge to climb that.... More

This was my first time in slot canyons. We accessed Buckskin Gulch via the Wire Pass Trail. When we reached a point where water came mid calf high we turned around. Amazing views at every turn, you don't get tired of it.
