Author Full Detail Guide
There are many Peek A Boo trails in Utah. Be sure to map it and see you are talking about the right one. This is a beautiful slot canyon that will make your pictures pop. You can hike from the road or drive most of the way to it if you have a very capable 4WD high clearance vehicle. Very deep sand. 8 to 12 inch average. Nice cool shade in the slot.

    Note: On the BLM Topo, this is called 'Red Canyon Slot.'
    Once we left the trailhead, I realized I could've driven down the road to the slot canyon, making the 3 mile approach much quicker. The shallow sandy road would be easily navigable with a mid-clearance AWD vehicle. It had even snowed the day before, and the road was in fine condition. The approach was so long that I decided to test out a cross-country route. It wasn't much faster, so we stuck to the road on the way back. I guess the only positive aspect of the approach to the slot is that you do get to see some awesome pink sand dunes!

    As for the slot hike itself. It's cool. But I was left underwhelmed. I think I was expecting to be wowed after the long approach. For a lot less effort, there are many other better canyons in this area. One positive thing about Red Rock Slot: we were the only ones around. Helps to go in mid-January :D
