Overview
More
The gulch is most famous because of the last 100 meters, before the junction with Dry Fork of Coyote Gulch - here the ravine cuts deeper into the sandstone, with a series of interlinked potholes, extravagant swirls and fins of rock, and several arches; these different openings and the many corners and crevices account for the curious name of this canyon.

Peekaboo Gulch is one of my FAVORITE places to go to in the area of southern Utah. It is a Beautiful Slot Canyon and I know anyone who goes there will enjoy it.

We did this hike by combining it with Spooky. There is a faintly marked trail from the end of Peek-a-boo over to Spooky. Would definitely recommend this hike. Note that getting into Peek-a-boo can be a bit tricky. There is an 8'-10' climb up into...More

Peek-A-Boo does require a little climbing over rocks but it's not terribly difficult. Granted, this changes occasionally with flash floods that either deposit sand or wash it away. It's still a good idea to wear long pants and a long sleeve shirt. You can combine...More

Peak a boo is amazing. If you bring kids make sure you have at least 2 adults. We took our toddler Luke who is 2.5 and he did great. It's a serious slot canyon so leave your big child carrying back packs and walking sticks...More

The worst part about this hike is the 12 foot wall to climb before entering. Well worth figuring it out.

This was an awesome hike, but be prepared! We are not slot canyon or desert experts by any stretch, but I've done plenty of hiking in other areas of the world...The trails are not clearly marked and in some places people have marked numerous trails,...More
