  • Don’t miss it! Exceptional slot canyon hike. Easy access in 4X4 and some 2WD. Purchase self issue permit online before you go.

  • We got to the trailhead in a AWD suv on a dry road. Beautiful slot canyon and not too many people on a weekday in November.

  • Start on wirepass trail (same traihead you use to start the wave) and keep walking until the end of the wash. Really easy, flat walk. We walked about a mile before we got to the slot canyon and then walked about anothet 3/4 mile until the trail split and then we turned around. At the trail split there are beautiful hieroglyphs and you can also observe the sheer magnificence and size of the slot canyon. Truly breathtaking. Longest slot canyon in the world and one of the most beautiful in Utah. Not very crowded when we went around 5pm. There are paper slips at the trailhead that you can use to pay - $6 per person for a day trip - and display on your car for the ranger. I cannot recommend this trail enough. The 3 mile round-trip hike is childfriendy . We saw a few pets on the trail as well. There is a small section where you climb up and down a makeshift ladder, it's pretty sturdy though. The hike is easy and soooooo BEAUTIFUL. One of my favorite hikes around Kanab/Page. $6 per person to hike it. Worth it!!!
  • Wow! Did not expect this... My wife and I originally tried to get access to the antelope canyon which (as you probably know) is difficult to get in. So we asked some locals and found out about Buckskin Gulch and decided to give it a try. It was amazing! Apparently, Buckskin Gulch is the longest slot canyon in the world and it does feel like it goes on forever. The views inside are amazing, almost spiritual feeling. As you hike you'll get to this cave area with ancient carvings of local animals and hand imprints - VERY cool! Being inside the canyon keeps you fairly cool out of the suns rays. This was actually our favorite experience from our 1 month stay in St. George! Full video about our experience on @Hobarts Abroad YouTube & TikTok :)
