It was our intent to hike up Peek-a-Boo Canyon, traverse over to the top of Spooky Canyon, then hike down (or, more accurately, shimmy through) Spooky. Evidently, we didn't go far enough up Peek-a-Boo before we scrambled out and ended up going into Spooky at the bottom. Going up Peek-a-Boo means you have to climb up a 20-foot dry fall (no technical gear required) before getting into the canyon so having a buddy to help definitely comes in handy. Peek-a-Boo is fun and gets rather narrow in spots. Spooky, however, was so narrow that you have to turn sideways to make it through. In fact, the walls touched both my husband's chest AND back at times (and he's a slim guy). By the time we got to Spooky there were a lot of people going through the canyons, so our advice is to go early and beat the crowds. In fact, we didn't finish Spooky as there was a serious traffic jam in a spot that required some upward stemming. Another bit of advice is not to camp near the trailhead as there are no trees. We found a very nice car camping spot off Egypt Wash Road.
