Hiking Kanarra Creek Trail is a family affair

If you want to experience a beautiful slot canyon with the family, Kanarra Creek, Utah is slow-moving and not too difficult to access. Hikers of Kanarra Falls Trail can expect to encounter multiple waterfalls, including two that are 8 feet or taller, and breathtaking sandstone colors throughout the slot canyon.

While it’s not something for small children or those new to hiking, the trail is appropriate for kids with some hiking experience. Hikers should know how to navigate tripping hazards like tree roots and narrow trails, be comfortable hiking in water, and wear appropriate footwear. Because it is a slot canyon, hikers should check the weather and avoid days that threaten precipitation. For hikers who are uncomfortable on potentially slippery rocks, a walking stick may be helpful. And, if attempting the hike during cooler months, wetsuits are advisable.

The hike is ideal for a hot day because much of it can be done in the water. Most of the river is about ankle-deep and slow-moving, so even children can join in without fear of being overpowered by rapids or currents. The trail is popular with locals, and hikers should expect to share the trail with others, including children.

To access the trail, get off I-15 on the Kanarraville/New Harmony exit 42 and head toward Kanarraville.
