Fiery Furnace



The Fiery Furnace is routinely described as a maze, and that metaphor is fitting. A continuation of the shattered fins that make up the Devils Garden area to the west, the Furnace holds twisting and turning canyons, slot canyons, and gorges that can easily disorient even seasoned canyoneers. The sandstone takes the shape of many interesting formations, including arches, overhangs, and passages. There is no established trail within the furnace, and hikers can technically rove as many miles as they desire, crossing and recrossing their own tracks. The ranger-guided tour is approximately two miles long however.
