The White Canyon is a beautiful little treat tucked away in Superior. It offers hiking, boulder hopping, climbing, and canyoneering, whatever floats your boat.

We parked at the gate and hiked the jeep road up, but could've easily driven up in the lifted 4Runner and parked at the wilderness boundary. It was a good little warm up in the chilly morning.

We didn't see anyone else on the sign-in book and we had to get a chuckle from another trip report that described an angry entry that complained about not having wheelchair access in this canyon :) By the time we got out and signed out around noon, we saw another entry of a couple, but we never met them in the canyon, which made us think of another description in a trip report of a couple hiking the jeep trail all the way up, signing in, and turning back toward the gate where they parked :)

Once we were in the canyon, we didn't worry too much about route finding. Like any canyon, if you lose the trail somehow, just do some boulder hopping and you will come across the trail again because they tend to cross the creek bed every now and then. It was the case here too. The scenery was definitely gorgeous! We ran into some free-ranged cows :)

We hiked to the pool where the boulder straddled on top of the narrow crack of the waterfall and took a little break while I went just a little further and climbed some big boulders. One person in our group was a novice hiker and did not wear proper shoes. So we turned back at that point. It was a cool little hike that would allow you to do a variety of fun things if you were into them, as evidenced in other trip reports. Definitely recommend this cool little gem tucked away.
