Buckskin Gulch to Wire Pass Trail



"For those who don't want to tackle the full Buckskin Gulch canyon hike, this is a great option. This hike starts at the Buckskin Gulch Trailhead, continues along the Buckskin Gulch for a couple miles, and then quickly exits at the Wire Pass Trailhead. For an even shorter, 5.6-mile through hike, you'll need to have either left a car, or catch a ride back to the Buckskin Gulch Trailhead to get back to where you started."
