  • The payoff for what you put into this hike makes it a must do for anyone. Parking lot right off the highway. Slight downhill to the mouth of the canyon. It takes 5 minutes to walk from car to the star...  more »
  • Took a 4 and 6 year old hiking here was worth the effort. Felt safe and easy the whole hike, kids were tired after the round trip but they can handle it well.  more »

  • Slot canyons aren't just in Arizona. Texas has one too! This was a fun adventure. We weren't able to make it all the way to the Rio Grande. Eventually we hit water. Bonus that it's cooler in the canyon. The hike into the canyon gets more challenging as you go. Scrambling rocks and sliding down smooth sections got us farther. My little ones thought it was really fun. The initial walk is full of gravel but not too many obstacles. You'll start to hit some drops that become more and more challenging.
  • This hike was awesome! Not too long, very scenic, we went till we hit water and turned around.
