Zebra Canyon, Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument

Zebra Canyon

Directions to Zebra Canyon: take Hole in Rock road to the third cattle guard, park at the obvious spot in the desert, and follow the trail. In less than a mile the trail drops into a wash, and the scenery gets interesting.

This is actually a pretty easy hike, but it didn’t feel like it. We were all tired from yesterday’s hike to Hidden Canyon and the late night. This was the only hike where one of the kids ran out of gas and needed some extra encouragement on the way back to the car.

We were here last year, so we didn’t have to wander around trying to find the entrance to this slot canyon. It’s not the narrowest of slot canyons, but you can’t wear a backpack or a kid carrier into it. Chase was riding Mark’s shoulders and cracked up when Mark had to go through contortions to climb an obstacle without dumping Chase off.

I took a few photos, but I’m including some I took last year in the gallery as well.
