Buckskin Gulch

Grand Canyon Overview

Click here for more information about Grand Canyon National Park and the surrounding area.

This long slot canyon is a tributary to Paria Canyon, and is often hiked as part of a loop that includes both Buckskin and Paria. It is one of the longest slot canyons in the world and is touted as one of the world's great canyoneering adventures.

The canyon is very deep and narrow, with sheer walls. In many spots it is just a few yards wide. Hikers just trek down the canyon, climbing over big rocks and wading or swimming through potholes filled with cold water. Technical gear is not needed, but hikers should always carry emergency gear and supplies.
