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

it was the tallest slot canyon with plenty of room at the bottom. It was great for those who are afraid of tight spaces

Buckskin Gulch is the longest slot canyon in world. This place is absolutely amazing! I did a 3 day backpacking trip through the canyon and loved it. You walk through some awesome slots and follow the Paria river. Some awesome opportunities for a great photography!

Not far from Kanab. Great place to hike. Met other hikers who gave us great tips on other places to hike as well.

Water came down the wash for a second time just as we arrived, so we didn't dare try to cross with a rental car. 4wd vehicles are a better bet, but cars will work if it hasn't rained for awhile. So we didn't make it to Wire Pass shortcut and the slot canyon, but enjoyed a hike around the first... More

Buckskin Gulch and surrounding area is worth you checking out. Do your research before hand, call The BLM and plan for cooler temps for your hiking if you can. The area is phenomenal, but it's the desert so much care must be taken.
