Leprechaun Canyon - Utah
What to do if you have little time : Leprechaun Canyon
Leprechaun Canyon is a slot canyon very little used because off the usual circuits. It is however very easy to access and the hike presents no difficulty, except walking in sand.
This short hike of about 2,5 miles round trip, without any difference in altitude, begins in a sandy wash dotted with tall bamboo style grass. Then you arrive in front of 2 canyons. The one on the left is blocked by a rock. The one on the right is also blocked by a block of stone but you can go around it by going up on the slickrock. From the top, we see the area blocked by the stone that looks very narrow. Then you walk in the pink-hued canyon that is gradually narrowing. Finally, the progression is possible only by walking on the side and without backpack, but you will not go far because it is really very narrow and it is dark.
Access : from Hanksville, take Highway 95 South for 28.1 miles then turn left. The car park is immediately there, almost on the roadside.
