Kanab's Peek-a-Book Canyon is an awesome slot canyon that's easy to hike too and not as crowded as other in major parks. En route to the canyon, you'll enjoy an exciting off-roading adventure while getting to the canyon.

The trailhead is Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (Angel Canyon Rd.) located between the Kanab and Mt. Carmel Jct. To get started, head out on a sandy track on the north side of US 89 (37.154,-112.573). 4WD vehicles can drive all (2.8 miles) or part of this track, which leads to the drainage below the narrows.

4-wheel drive is needed to get to the destination and airing down the tires is strongly recommended. VERY Sandy. There are two sections of slot canyons and it opens up in the middle. The trail ends with a dry fall that is not climbable. Short distance to walk in and out. Great for families.

I used the parking area just of 89 to run there and back. If you plan to run/hike be aware that it's very sandy, downhill on the there (which means uphill on the way back), and you need to be very aware that it's mostly an ATV road so don't wear headphones and be ready to move out the way of jeeps/ATVs.

This is a short but sweet and simple slot that is a great introduction. with 4x4 you can get very close access and do this slot without breaking a sweat, but it sure is beautiful and worth a little hiking if needed.

Sandstone slot canyons are always fun, and Peek-a-Boo Canyon definitely lives up to it's name. Definitely a must do if you're in the area!
