This is a very special segment of the Salt River Canyon Wilderness. The river at this location has tremendous character with intricate river bends, bluffs, cliffs, and lush vegetation. The primary access to this location is via Shute Springs Creek, however it may be possible to hike upstream from the Highway 288 Bridge. The hike up from the bridge would be 1.8 miles and will require swimming and/or wading. Hiking to this location via Shute Springs Creek is a pleasant and rewarding hike through seldom visited remote backcountry with great views along the entire route. Shute Springs Creek must be bypassed near the Salt River due to technical pour-overs. Backtrack a little ways to an obvious saddle on the east side of the canyon and cross over to a secondary paralleling wash. The trip log stats are round-trip via Shute Springs Creek.
