Discover the spectacular family friendly Kanarra Creek

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.

Entering the Kanarra Creek Slot CanyonThe hike is about 3.5 miles out-and-back. The first mile or so is along a dirt road that can be hot and is not all that exciting.

Hiking Kanarra Creek CanyonAfter 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 Kanarra Creek Slot CanyonThe 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.

Final waterfall in Kanarra Creek CanyonThe 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.
