Page Hiking Tours - Buckskin Gulch
Experience Buckskin Gulch, the longest slot canyon in the world, through a guided adventure that starts in the middle of the canyon, bypassing the crowds. Just an hour from Page in southern Utah, this section of the Navajo sandstone canyon is stunning and remote, with ancient petroglyphs and the opportunity to visit a beautiful arch nearby that few people ever visit.
About the Tour
The first hour of the hike is wide open with panoramic views of the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument. Then we'll reach the lip of the slot and negotiate the steep descent into the cool and shady world of narrow, sculpted sandstone walls, where the sky is just a narrow slit above us. We'll see ancient petroglyphs left by the Ancestral Puebloans who also used this same route. We'll spend several hours exploring the canyon and enjoying a hearty lunch. After exiting the canyon, and if you've still got the energy, we'll make a detour to see a beautiful, unique arch that few people ever visit. We'll be back to our cars in the late afternoon.
This experience can be as short as 5 hours, or as long as 10 hours, depending on how far you want to explore the canyon.
Hiking experience is a must - the minimum distance is 4 miles. This hike is for fit and active hikers. Your experience will be much more enjoyable if your body is used to hiking for several hours.
IMPORTANT: This hike is not for anyone with a strong fear of heights and requires a steep Class 3 scramble into the slot. This is a physically demanding hike of a minimum distance of 4 miles and a max of 10 miles. Recent rain events may require hiking through mud and wading through pools of water. Conditions inside the slot canyon change continuously, so bring an adventurous and positive attitude. Entry into the canyon is allowed only if safe from flash flood danger.
