Buckskin Gulch—Kanab, Utah

If slot canyons are your thing, Buckskin Gulch is your hike. The 13-mile corridor through bright red sandstone is so narrow, hikers must remove their packs to squeeze through some sections—Wire Pass, the first two miles of the hike, is only two feet wide. Follow the gulch through its claustrophobia-inducing twists until it intersects with the Paria River Canyon, where you can hire a shuttle to ferry you back to your car.
Difficulty: Moderate
When to go: April-June or September-October (summer brings flash flood danger)
