The baby baby narrows
Jun. 2020
We debated taking a trip to Kannarra Falls when planning our trip to Zion, but looking back, I'm SO glad we did it. The first mile into the trail is pretty boring and I got a little nervous, but once you started to approach the slot canyon and enter the river, it because so amazing. I like that this hike is maxed at 150 hikers per day to keep the hordes of people at a minimum. I would definitely make a trip back here!

Stunning, quiet slot canyon
Aug. 2019 • Family
I hiked this hike with a 5yo, 8yo, and three teens. It takes a solid hour to reach the slot and the path is not well marked. Follow the river! We wore Teva sandals which made the multiple river crossings easier. The slot is just beautiful and worth the hike. There are a series of waterfalls, the first of which has a questionable ladder. My 5yo slipped and almost fell. However, after a week of exploring Utah parks, this hike was named the favorite by all 5 of my children! Bring cash for parking, snacks, and plenty of water. Watch the weather and remember it's not a loop, you trace your steps to get out.

Beautiful Place to HIKE
Sep. 2019
Water in September is freezing but nice weather for hike.
Wearing Keen water sandals all the way from the parking to the falls.
Great for older kids and teenagers as well.
Buying permit online in advance is highly recommended(Limited only 150 Hikers per day and no dog, no young kids allowed)
Do not hike this trail if it's raining or if there is a threat of thunderstorms in the area. Parking is very limited - not too much space. Please prepared

Great slot canyon hike
Aug. 2019 • Family
I was looking for exciting things to do to have my teens (15 & 19) actually experience the beauty of God's creation.
This little known gem was awesome! Hiking along and through the creek to the falls and slot canyon was it! They limit hikers to 150/day so you hardly see anyone else on the trail.

Great little slot canyon with "easy" access
May 2019
I have done slots all over Southern Utah, and this is one of the easiest to get to. You do now have to have reservations I hear, but not sure how to do it. Very beautiful, kids can do it if they can walk a couple miles - you have to walk in the sun about a half mile before you get in to the shade of the canyon. I have done this with grandkids, Scouts, and Waterpolo teams - great couple hour break if you are in the area and tired of driving I-15.

Beautiful Slot Canyon

Great hike but too many peeps are destroying with graffiti and littering on the trail. If your going to hike please leave no trace.

Wonderful just the way it is

This place is Wonderful just the way it is. Yes you should buy tickets online before you go. Yes some of the climbing areas have sketchy ladders and logs to climb to keep going through and around the waterfalls. But hey this is an intersting hike. If you want an easy hike walk around a track or parking lot.

We are in our 50s amd had no issue with any of the hiking climbing or rocks. Go an enjoy nature

Dysfunctional hiking permit system

The locals don't take kindly to visitors. Hopefully the town refines their laws but don't go in 2019

Beautiful nature hike.

A beautiful landscape through it really cool slot canyon. But with all that money they make for parking you would think they could invest in better ladders. The ones the have are CRAP. Very dangerous. I saw people bleeding and getting their heads bangs on canyon walls. They could buy something that is much safer for the price of two or three parking passes.

Definitely worth it if you're in the area
Apr. 2019 • Family
We were staying in St George UT and decided to make the drive up to Kanarraville to hike the slot canyon to the falls. YOU NEED TO PURCHASE A PERMIT ONLINE! On a busy day they may sell out so plan ahead. We purchased ours several days in advance. It was a 57 degree day cold and windy at the parking lot. There are a couple of Porta potties at the parking lot and a nicer Forrestry service type bathroom near the 1dt River crossing in the canyon. With some advice from a couple that just came down the canyon we switched from socks and shoes to hiking sandles, shorts a t-shirt and a sweatshirt (this was a good switch as you will get wet and sandles dry much quicker). Once we got up into the canyon at the 1st river crossing we found the water ice cold as expected and the wind was pretty much gone. Sun was more evident in the early canyon and after a while we were warm enough to remove our sweatshirts. The scenery was beautiful, snow in the upper mountains was viewable and pretty with lots of red rock down low. As you get higher into the slot canyon, you will cross the river very frequently until you actually walk up it through the slot canyon. With the limited permits sold each day it helps reduce the crowds and wait time to climb the ladder near the end. Our feet were nearly numb after leaving the slot canyon but it was so worth it!! Bring snacks as it's long enough to work up an appetite.
