    Great way to end our hiking day. We did the grand tour and also did a few meet/greet with animals on our own. Highly recommend but be warned you might come away with a new pet. Next time we will stay on property and volunteer!

    From the south, after you leave the Powell Dam, near a curve on Hiway 89, watch for a left turn off - - House Rock Valley Road #6005. It’s hard to see the entrance of the road. This road is a flat dirt road, easy to drive on!! If you missed it, the map will direct you to keep going an extra 2 minutes and have you turn left into a mountain road # 4170 near tall cell towers If you don’t have a Jeep or a car with a high chassis, DONT GO INTO IT! It’s a very rocky road going down a hillside and will potentially damage your car and have you stuck !

    There is a Wire Pass Trailhead sign, parking lot, and bathrooms. It's an easy trail until you get close to the slot canyon. We are a 76 and 80 year old couple who found it doable and delightful!!

    awesome adventure that requires a tour guide to enjoy this place. unless you are a experienced hiker that owns a 4x4 vehicle then you should able to handle this hike. for us, we signed up with dreamland tours with Jaron as our tour guide. we met up at house rock valley
    junction and from there, it was approximately an 1 1/2 hour. the first hour was good ride but the last 1/2 hour was pretty rough. when we finally got to our destination anf started hiking, the scenic view is truly amazing. everywhere you look its totally breathtaking. we never saw any other hikers out there. Jaron was extremely patient and showed everything we know. it is truly worth it to be out here. i have never been to THE WAVE , but I’m extremely satisfied with this trip. Highly recommended to check this out and definitely give a dreamland tours a call

    My kids loved sandboarding on the dunes. It was a highlight. However once you go down, you have to come back up sand, which is hard. To rent the sandboard or sled, it is $25 each. The scenery is really pretty.

    Tips: I recommend bringing thick socks and slides for the kids as you go on the boards bare feet or socks. I had thicker socks for my daughter to use since I wasn’t using it. Also, bring extra clothes so they could change out of sanding clothes. Also, the sleds can be shared which we did.

    After going to Upper Antelope canyon last year and truly enjoying our tour, which is VERY EXPENSIVE but beautiful. I did some research and found PEEKABOO, just over an hour outside of PAGE, Az. Peekaboo is open to public without charge, or you can do tour. You will need 4-wheel drive to get there but then can walk the canyon at your leisure. It is a FLAT walk with one area you need to step up on, but SUPER STURDY. EASY EASY walk here, Upper Antelope isn't bad but you have to go up a steep ramp at end. PEEKABOO you simply turn around. Both are AMAZING to see - NEVER limit yourself - YOU GOT THIS! Visit either or BOTH!!

    Wonderfully preserved house that was occupied by early Kanab settlers. The docent that gave the tour was very knowledgeable.

    Old Paria (also spelled Pahreah) lies just off Hwy 89 between Kanab and Page.
    It was the site of one of the early Mormon settlements.
    The site was chosen because of its proximity to the Paria River that starts at Bryce Canyon and ends at the Colorado River jus downstream from Lee's Ferry.
    Today all that is left is the old cemetery and some explanatory plaques.
    However, the site is definitely worth visiting for the beautiful colorful rock layers surrounding the old village site.
    Pretty to the eye and providing some good photo opportunities.
    Definitely worth the short detour!!

    Not being sure of what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised. The interesting geology and the incredible colors was cause for many stops for pictures. Well worth the time to meander down the road

    Kanab is lovely quaint small town to visit and is very close to some of the most beautiful National parks of Zion and Bryce Canyon. Coral pink sand dunes are so close and so many slot canyons like Paria Canyon, cottonwood canyon. Buckskin Gulch, lake Powell and moqui cave to name a few others in the area. Wanted to do the "wave", but you need special permission for that!

    We had a day for doing activities around Kanab. Allen, in the Visitor Center, laid out a perfect day! Best Friends Animal Sanctuary was a good stop. We didn’t take the 90 minute tour but rather drove the property on our own. The work they do is impressive. We walked through Belly of the Dragon, hiked a portion of the trail. Ended the day walking to Red Hollow Slot Canyon. The hike is made a bit tiring because of walking through the deep, soft sand but the reward of making it to the slot is worth it. Thanks for the suggestion, Allen! Oh, lunch at Havana Cabana was an excellent decision!
