Hike to Zebra Slot Canyon

Zebra Slot Canyon - Search Nearby - Added by Leo Xu

4.8 miles round trip, you can see the most amazing slot canyon just outside of Escalante!

This place is just outside of Escalante, Utah, about 6 miles drive down the Hole in the Rock Road / BLM 200. You will see a small parking lot on the right side, the trailhead is not marked, but it's right cross the road from parking lot, once you see the trail you can just easily follow it for 1.9 miles until you hit a big dried up creek. Go left to Zebra slot canyon, go right to Tunnel slot canyon. 

Tunnel Slot Canyon: When you reach the Creek, turn right, about 0.8 mile the canyon will be on your left side, you'd better pull out the GPS on the phone or it's very easy to miss it, it was flooded when I was there, so I didn't go in the tunnel.

Zebra Slot Canyon: When you reach the Creek, turn left, hike along the creek for 0.5 miles and you'll see the canyon. It was waist deep water when I was there, but I still waded in and it was freezing. The canyon is super narrow; I'm 5'7'', 135lbs, and I had a hard time moving forward in some spots. Be prepared for some scratches. 

If it's raining or there are flood warnings please do not enter the slot canyons.

Amazing and gorgeous slot. Was much less busy than nearby spooky and peek-a-boo slots when i visited, which made it a special experience in my book. water was cool but not deep and worth the wading. Tunnel slot is also cool, but short (you can see straight through it) and was full of water. It is quite a contrast to zebra.
