Incredible! Buckskin Gulch is the longest and deepest slot canyon in the Southwest...
While others are narrower or more challenging to explore, the length and variety of the terrain in the gulch make it the best overall. The canyon is narrow for 12 miles; the cliffs become steadily higher downstream, reaching a height of 500 feet above the streambed at the end, where Buckskin Gulch meets the Paria river which also flows through a deep canyon for several miles either side of the confluence.
The walls of both canyons are rather dark, and the great depth means that the sun rarely illuminates the narrow passages fully. The walls of the gulch show the characteristic swirls and curves worn by countless millennia of floods, and they are eroded into innumerable eerie rock formations which can resemble all kinds of distorted creatures and strange objects.This area is unique in the world and you will not see this anywhere else.
Photography is unlimited in this desert landscape with the orange and pink formations created under ancient sea bed. The Buckskin gulch tour is very flat and does not require any special skills or physical ability just a sense of adventure. These trips are primarily in the shade and are very comfortable even in the hot summer months due to the high canyon walls. There can be pockets of water/mud in certain months of the year so boots are a good idea whether dry or wet.
