Buckskin Gulch-Pariah Canyon, UT
Buckskin Gulch is 13 miles of mind-bending, 400-foot-high water- and wind-sculpted walls, rarely more than 10 feet apart, with no way to escape other than back the way you came (don’t go anywhere near it if there’s even a sniff of rain in the air). Most do Buckskin as an out-and-back day trip, but the best way to experience the southwest’s most spectacular slot canyon is by tackling the whole thing in one big push, camping where it eventually meets Paria Canyon, then finishing your trip with a couple days wading the shallow streams and exploring the mesas of the much-wider Paria River valley. Head north for two days to finish at White House campground or take on the entire southern section of Paria Canyon to Lee’s Ferry over four or five days.
