Tough, narrow passage way. Somewhat strenuous. Good sites of geology. Worth a stop. I noticed some elderly folks and disabled folks trying it - really don't recommend it unless you're prepared for some tough climbs.

Because of time restraints, we chose to do the cave loop. At the split, we decided to do a short way on the canyon trail. It was definitely prettier than the cave loop. And shady! However, if you really want to see the cave, just...More

Take the trail that winds through slot canyon. It starts easily, almost a disappointment, but enjoy the openness and views as you work your way up to the canyon. Once inside, the canyon narrows to true slots through gorgeously striated tall rock walls that open...More
