Paria Canyon and Buckskin Gulch


Buckskin Gulch is a long slot canyon tributary to Paria Canyon. It is managed as wilderness and regarded as one of the world's best hiking destinations.

Together with Paria, a number of hiking options exist here, with one route stretching for some 38 miles, from trailheads near the Utah/Arizona border down to Lee's Ferry on the Colorado River. There is no trail-you simply hike down the canyon, which is so narrow you can touch both walls in some spots. Towering sheer cliffs rise above you. For mile after mile, there is no escape from the canyon other than hiking to its end. That makes it an extremely dangerous place should a flash flood occur. Hikers must gauge weather conditions carefully before entering.
