Tom’s Experience hiking through Kanarra Creek Canyon:
Kanarra Creek Canyon is a short and very fun nontechnical slot canyon that is also very photogenic.
After that, you enter the canyon and there is a lot of wading through the stream, so your feet will definitely get wet. There are two waterfalls that block upstream travel.
The first waterfall has a metal ladder that has been put against the waterfall to allow you to climb up and over. It is a little slippery but easy to climb and no need to get wet.
The second waterfall has some ropes that you can use to climb up and over. When we went there was no way to climb up this waterfall without getting wet.
From the second waterfall, you can hike further up the canyon to a nice swimming hole and a mossy natural rock slide. Dogs are not allowed on this trail in order to protect the water supply for Kanarraville.
Trail Info: Kanarra Creek canyon is located just East of the town of Kanarraville. Parking at the trailhead costs $10 per vehicle.
