A slot canyon is a long, narrow, deep and tortuous channel or drainageway with sheer rock walls that are typically eroded into either sandstone or other sedimentary rock. A slot canyon has depth-to-width ratios that typically exceed 10:1 over most of its length and can approach 100:1. The term is especially used in the semiarid western United States, including the Colorado Plateau region. Slot canyons are subject to flash flooding and commonly contain unique ecological communities that are distinct from the adjacent, drier uplands.[1] Some slot canyons can measure less than 1 metre (3 ft) across at the top but drop more than 30 metres (100 ft) to the floor of the canyon.

Many slot canyons are formed in sandstone and limestone rock, although slot canyons in other rock types such as granite and basalt are possible. Even in sandstone and limestone, only a very small number of streams will form slot canyons due to a combination of the particular characteristics of the rock and regional rainfall.

Slot canyons around the world[edit]

Slot canyons are found in many parts of the world, predominantly in areas with low rainfall. Some of the best-known slot canyons are to be found in the Southwestern United States. Other significant areas include the Sierra de Guara in northern Spain, the Pyrenees on the border of France and Spain, and the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia.

Knox Gorge, Karijini National Park

Australia[edit]

The largest known area of slot canyons in Australia is in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. They occur in a narrow band of sandstone that runs roughly 30 kilometres (19 mi) from east to west, and about 100 kilometres (62 mi) from south to north. The majority of these canyons are in the Wollemi Wilderness, and are difficult to access. A small number are regularly visited by canyoners on weekends in summer. The Grand Canyon, near Blackheath, has a tourist track along its rim, but requires abseiling (rappelling) or swimming to visit fully.

Sandstone slot canyons can also be found in a few more remote parts of Australia, including Karijini National Park and the Bungle Bungles in Purnululu National Park, both in Western Australia, and Carnarvon Gorge in Queensland.

Wire Pass leading into Buckskin Gulch, Utah

United States[edit]

Southern Utah has the densest population of slot canyons in the world with over one thousand slot canyons in the desert lands south of Interstate 70.[2] Utah's slot canyons are found in Zion National Park at The Narrows, along Canyonlands National Park's Joint Trail, throughout Capitol Reef National Park, within the San Rafael Swell and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, especially along the Escalante River drainage including Coyote Gulch. Many more slot canyons are located on public Bureau of Land Management and state-owned lands in southern Utah, in areas surrounding the aforementioned parks and monuments. Buckskin Gulch—one of the longest slot canyons in the world—begins in southern Utah and continues into northern Arizona within the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. Northern Arizona also has a high concentration of slot canyons including Antelope Canyon and Secret Canyon, which are two of the most famous slot canyons located near Page on land owned by the Navajo Nation. Slot canyons are also located in the valley between U.S. Route 89 and the Vermilion Cliffs in Arizona, and can be seen as one descends into the valley on U.S. 89, but these are on the Navajo reservation and are closed to the public. The Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument's slot canyon trail in New Mexico is unique as it was carved into tuff (volcanic ash). In California, several slot canyons are located within Death Valley National Park.

Lower Antelope Canyon, Arizona

Drowning danger[edit]

Local as well as distant storms can cause dangerous flash flooding in slot canyons, and hikers should not enter them if there is any sign of rain in the surrounding area.[3] In many slot canyons, it can be miles before a safe exit or rescue is possible.

On August 12, 1997, eleven tourists, including seven from France, one from the United Kingdom, one from Sweden and two from the United States, were killed in Lower Antelope Canyon by a flash flood.[4][5] Very little rain fell at the site that day, but an earlier thunderstorm had dumped a large amount of water into the canyon basin, seven miles upstream. The lone survivor of the flood was tour guide Francisco 'Poncho' Quintana, who had prior swift-water training. At the time, the ladder system consisted of amateur-built wood ladders that were swept away by the flash flood. Today, ladder systems have been bolted in place, and deployable cargo nets are installed at the top of the canyon. A NOAA Weather Radio from the National Weather Service and an alarm horn are stationed at the fee booth.[6]

Delightful Inn and Best Food in the Area
PAM R. From: Bloomington, IN

We stayed at Stone Canyon to visit Bryce. We found the Inn to be delightful and the staff very attentive. The cottages are wonderful with fireplaces, great beds and baskets of goods to stave off any hunger.

We dined at their restaurant – Stone Hearth Grill – for two nights and found the food great. We enjoyed a great bottle of wine the first night from the wine list. The next night we enjoyed our own (with a corking fee) as we had purchased some in Colorado on the drive down.

Michael was our waiter the first night and was wonderful. He gave advice on what hikes to do in Bryce and Zion. Great place and wonderful to have such a great restaurant to dine in after a long day of hiking.

Hidden paradise!

We arrived a little early, but were checked in with no problem. Our bungalow was just adorable. Very cozy and comfortable. It began to snow after we settled in so the fireplace came on with the touch of a button and we enjoyed the scenery before dinner. Dinner was a 5 star meal and with the big windows we could enjoy the beautiful mountains. We had to leave very early the next morning to make a flight in Las Vegas. I wish we could have just tucked ourselves away for a week at this wonderful property!

Amazing sleek and modern cottage

Date of stay: March 2020

We stayed for 3 nights in a wonderful newly built and modern cabin with parking next to it, a patio in the back, a small kitchenette. We had a king sized bed but still had room for our backpacks, suitcases, etc. There were also two upholstered chairs that were comfortable for drinking coffee before setting out. Between Bryce Canyon NP and Kodachrome State Park.

The restaurant wasn’t open our first night as it was the beginning of the season, but it was very convenient when it did open.

Tranquility Plus!!!!

Date of stay: March 2020

This is a wonderful place to stay! It is away from anything so is super peaceful and tranquil! Yet, close enough to Bryce National Park so super convenient. We checked in late (with prior arrangements) and we never saw a human while we were there, only the many rabbits who greeted us!

The cabin was very, very clean and super nice! Two large bedrooms, two baths, an awesome walk in shower, fireplace and our own private hot tub!

I wish we could have stayed longer, next time we will!

Beautiful property close to Bryce NP

Date of stay: January 2020

Had a wonderful night in one of the cabins at Stone Canyon Inn and would have liked to stay longer. Two bedrooms, two baths, our own hot tub on the deck, and kitchen made this a perfect home-away-from-home while visiting the national park. Front desk staff was very helpful as I inadvertently reserved the cabin on line for the wrong night… not once but twice (!). Thankfully, they were able to change our reservation once we spoke to them live. They are just a bit off the main road in Tropic, which makes for a lovely, quiet setting. Cabin was clean, beds comfy, full kitchen if wanting to cook your own meals (although you’d have to bring all your own spices, etc. because they only had salt/pepper). Their restaurant was closed for the winter so we got take-out from the BBQ place in town (which was pretty good). Would definitely stay here again.

We just checked out today and I am already missing our cabin at Stone Canyon Inn. My husband and I travel frequently all over the U.S. and globally. Our beautiful cabin here was our favorite place we’ve stayed all year—as well as the cleanest and most cozy and comfortable. We stayed in a cabin with its own private hot tub and every night after hiking Bryce we soaked and watched the stars for over an hour (and the stargazing here is phenomenal due to low light pollution). We had all the amenities we needed and were constantly mesmerized by the beautiful views out every single window. An adorable little deer visited outside our window most days. We loved it here so much that we extended our stay for a 3rd night, and I wish we would have stayed even longer. We are already planning our next visit! Thank you so much for your hospitality and for creating such a lovely place for travelers! ❤️
