If you have had more than a ten minute conversation with me you probably know, I love Slot Canyons! Narrow, winding trails through towering sandstone walls put a huge smile on my face. And just a few minutes outside of Kanab is a stunner. Peekaboo Slot Canyon will not disappoint.
I know it can be confusing but there are TWO peekaboo slot canyons in Southern Utah. And several ways to spell it. Someone didn’t think that one through very well….
We have the “Kanab Peekaboo” while the other is much more remote in the Dry Fork area of the Grand Staircase- Escalante, so it’s the “Escalante Peekaboo”. If you are doing your research look for Peek-A-Boo canyon, Peekaboo canyon, and Peek A Boo canyon. All the spellings have a little different result
A tour guide can drive you right to the mouth of this easy walking Slot Canyon.
The morning light is really nice for good photos, you may want a tripod though.
We go as often as we can. Different lighting means a different show every time.
Coral Cliffs Tour Company are our go-to guides for all the adventures surrounding Kanab. Jeff and Julie at Coral Cliffs Tours, are an awesome local family company. They have a Peekaboo Slot Canyon tour priced considerably better than any of the other private tour companies in town.
Just in case you are wondering – you do not want to try and get yourself there unless you have a HIGH CLEARANCE four-wheel drive and KNOW how to drive in deep sand! Just because your Subaru is 4WD, it is too low. Jeff and Julie have to drag someone out of there almost every week. Don’t do it.
Call Jeff and Julie at Coral Cliffs Tours – 435-899-0697 or 801-631-3500
After you explore this little canyon, come out the mouth of the slot, go around the corner to the left, and up the short trail to “The Needle”.
Awesome formation and more great photos. You are gonna love this place!
