Exhilarating Drive

Unparalleled Scenery

Moderate Hike

Join Us On This American Classic Hiking Trail!

If you love hiking then we imagine this is on your bucket list! Reported to be one of the longest and highest slot canyons in the world, the deep and winding Buckskin Gulch intrigues all who enter it. Get ready to be wowed by the epic depth of the 26-mile-long canyon while simultaneously feeling the squeeze as the space between each wall often shrinks to less than 3 feet. When inside you will be peering up in awe from the darkness of the canyon floor, marveling at the debris jams from previous floods and the curious plants growing out of the canyon. You simply have to see it to believe it! We’ll then take a look into the past, as we come across pictographs from long-lost tribes of Native American Indians to complete an unforgettable Buckskin Gulch tour.

Important Info

Permit: There is a $6.00 fee per person that can be paid online through recreation.gov, ahead of time or at the trailhead.

We always have to keep an eye on the weather before any hike in a slot canyon due to potential flash flooding.

Like all slot canyons in the Southwestern United States, the crack in the Earth was carved in the sandstone by flash floods, which adds to the feeling of adventure.

The Drive: We’ll start with a ride on paved highway. Then there’s 9 miles of unpaved terrain - taking approximately, we will drive this stretch in the Can-Am UTV or Suburban. The tour takes a total of 3 hours of driving, and the drive is one of the great elements of the adventure.

We do offer a refund on deposits if weather is a factor.
