Canyoneering Birch Hollow

Birch Hollow - Search Nearby - Added by Scott Barlow

Birch Hollow is a challenging 3. A III canyon. 8 rappels for a slot canyon experience when tackled by qualified and skilled individuals. The longest rap is 120 feet (40m).

Birch Hollow is near Zion National Park, and accessible from North Fork Road (East Zion) past the Ponderosa Resort. If you do not hike out through Orderville into Zion National Park (ZNP) and the Narrows, then a ZNP Permit is not required (turning around and hiking back to your vehicle).

The time commitment is about 4 to 6 hours if exiting upstream to your vehicle at the Trailhead, or 8 to 12 hours if descending downstream through Orderville to the ZNP Narrows with a Permit.

Be prepared for multiple challenges, including rappelling, stemming, down-climbing, tying proper knots, assessing anchor points, and it's a good idea to bring gear to replace webbing and quick links if necessary (sandstone color preferred).

Fun but long shuttle

Fun canyon but the hike out is long, especially if you only have one car. We lucked out and were able to hitch a ride back to the top from someone but I wouldn't plan on that is this isnt a very popular canyon.

First Canyon

This is a great canyon. This was my first ever canyoneering trip,and it was awesome. Easy and has some great views. It's not actually in Zion national park but in Zion ponderosa ranch. Great first timer.

Best Slot canyon repel ever. You can get around the first longest repel so you don't have to tie your two ropes together. Can be a long hike out depending oh how far your shuttle dares to drive in
