A Guide to Exploring Utah’s Incredible Slot Canyons

There is something magical and sobering about exploring slot canyons in Southern Utah.

Hiking, swimming and sometimes squeezing through high sandstone walls carved by the elements over thousands of hundreds of thousands of years makes you keenly aware of how powerful the natural world around us is.

Don’t worry though, if the thought of squeezing through a 10-inch crevice 100 miles from civilization inspires panic like that time your brother zipped you into your sleeping bag while he watched Saturday morning cartoons, there are plenty of incredible slot canyons like the Zion Narrows that don’t require any squeezing.

For the thrill seekers out there, there are several options to bring your rope and harness for some canyoneering.

Whatever your speed is, a day spent exploring the cool, winding depths of any of these Utah slot canyons is one you won’t regret.
