Canyons are inherently risky. Flash floods occur without notice on sunny days. Technical skills & surrounding topography knowledge required yet does not eliminate risk.

Syllabus
Immaculate Canyon is a 5 mile shuttle canyon trip with a 1700 ft drop in elevation. Located 16 miles south-southwest of Flagstaff Arizona. A high clearance vehicle is recommended to access the trailhead. May and June are the best months to enjoy this activity. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.


Overview: Park somewhere near Buckhead Point and drop into the canyon at 35.0011 -111.7889 . Expect to encounter about 10 rappels up to 180ft with some deep waders to brief swimmers. Once out of the narrows, follow the flowing creek down the main canyon towards the West Fork and take that downstream to the parking lot along 89A. Either spot a lower vehicle at Call of the Canyon or follow 89A south to the AB young trail and take that back up to Woody Mt road and walk the road a few miles back to Buckhead Point
