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

Author Full Detail Guide
Fun short dry canyon with 3 rappels max ~50'. Scenic hike with sunrise arch and others along the approach. Just across the Lower Salt river from water users #1. In winter (~8 cfs) can use a river rock fisherman crossing and keep your feet dry. In summer (~450+ cfs) will require some swimming or packraft crossing.
