we were really excited about this hike. We didn't expect a 4 mile hike in deep sand to get to the narrows and eventually the slot areas. It was a BEAUTIFUL HIKE though. Heads up, we spotted a curious rock formation within the first 1/2...More

Just too messy for this traveller located via Wire Pass and to jump in the waist high water was not for me

We hiked Wire Pass Canyon also which seems to me that Buckskin Gulch connects with Wire Pass Canyon. If you don't mind driving another few miles on the bumpy dusty dirt road, I think it is worth it to start at Wire Pass Canyon Trailhead....More

Hardly any people here. No tour buses. Had the place virtually to ourselves which made this better than the busy antelope canyons. Did not need a native guide. We wandered on our own which is rare in these areas.
