There is plenty of parking and a restroom here at the Red Canyon Slot Trailhead.
We head Northeast out of the parking lot.
The majority of this trail is very sandy so be prepared for that. We stay to the left here.
Here we are at the mouth of the slot canyons. You can park here and get out to explore the canyons. This is a dead end so you’ll have to do some back tracking to continue on the trail.
There are trailmarkers along the way to keep you headed in the right direction. This trail takes you up around The Sand Hills and toward Elkheart Cliffs Slot Canyon Trailhead.
There is a lot of beautiful scenery along this trail.
This is the trailhead for the Elkheart Slot canyon hike. It takes off down the hill just to the right of the powerline pole.
