First off, if driving from Page Arizona, you might miss the entry point on the left side. It is unmarked and just after a bend on the road. It's a long drive in dirt road and there's a sign that it'll be impassable if there's...More

We parked at Wire Pass which gets you into the slot canyon quicker than parking up the gravel road at Buckskin - both entrances take you into the beautiful canyons. They are easy and flat except for one small drop over some rocks which is...More

Buckskin Gulch was a trip highlight. The location is remote, and a little difficult to get to (minimal signage and a long, deeply rutted dirt road) but it's worth it. You have a beautiful slot canyon practically to yourself. We chose to enter Buckskin via...More

The Wire Pass Trail is a very enjoyable way to get to the Buckskin Gulch destination...except. Except for this one little spot where there is about a 6 to 8 foot drop in a slot canyon that is very, very difficult to go through. We...More
