Hidden Canyon

A fine adventure in a wilderness setting.”

It starts and ends at Weeping Rock, shown below.

Mystery Canyon

For this canyon, wear your red shirt.

Mystery Canyon ends with a spectacular 115-foot rappel into the Zion Narrows. You will be rappelling down a waterfall, which is very slippery with moss. If you are lucky, there will be a large crowd of tourists gathered to admire your canyoneering skills and videotape you for future generations.”

Keyhole Canyon

Maybe the shortest technical canyon in the Zion area. 1-2 hours and 3-4 rappels.

Pine Creek

This canyon has a start right underneath the highway where you park the car. Five minutes of hiking gets you to the first rappel. Cool, huh?
