For years this hike was a hidden gem where you would almost never see another person.
Kanarra creek flows out of springs high on the edge of the Colorado Plateau and has carved a wonderful forested drainage providing ample shade, cool pools of spring water, and intriguing side canyons to explore. This makes for one of the best hikes in the middle of a hot summer afternoon.
As an out and back hike with no technical obstacles, ample online directions, easy permit system to navigate, and a simple and obvious route, this is a hike which is frequently accomplished without a guide. However if you would like to understand the geology, natural history, flora and fauna of the area, as well as be equipped with comfortable water hiking equipment, and leave the logistics to us, we can provide a guide who will definitely enhance this experience.
