What can I say marvelous,!! so much better than Antelope Canyon where you stand in line with tons of people & barley even get a chance to take pictures. We we're awestruck, such a fascinating canyon that we're planned our next visit already again for this year. This must be on everyone's bucket list, & yes most definitely will you... More

This is a great canyon. Lots of sections with slots that open up into canyons. You can hike for miles and never be uninspired! We have been in a lot of areas with canyons and slots but this was easily the best.

We accessed Buckskin Gulch from We accessed Buckskin Gulch from the Wire Pass trailhead about 8.5 miles down the dirt road from 89, about 35 miles west of Page, but you can also use the Buckskin trailhead which is closer to 89, about 4.5 miles down the dirt road. Buckskin Gulch is allegedly the longest slot canyon in the world... More

Having only one day, I attempted to hike all 18 miles of the longest continuous slot canyon in the United States. Although Mother nature prevented this from happening due to a deep and large pool of water at around mile 14 that I was ill prepared for, this slot canyon is one amazing, yet strenuous, hike!

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.
