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

Syllabus
Long Canyon Slot is a 1 mile round trip canyon trip with 40 feet elevation gain. Located 76 miles southeast of Richfield Utah. The trailhead is car accessible. March and April 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: This hike begins off the Burr Trail Road. From Boulder, drive 11 miles east on the Burr Trail Road to a small, unmarked, paved pullout on the north (left) side of the road. From the pullout, the narrow slot is visible directly across the wash. Walk into this short canyon to experience the tall walls and narrow perspective of a slot canyon. This is a short, easy, 15 minute stroll. Maps: USGS 7.5 Minute Quad: King Bench.
