Sites 2, 3, 4, and 12 must be accessed by carrying your gear a short distance from the parking area and sites A-G only have fire rings. Vault toilets are provided but there is no water. You must bring your own. Roads and parking spurs are gravel. Pets must be leashed in campground.


The canyon has some excellent hiking and horseback riding opportunities. Three steep scenic loop trails (3 to 5-mile loops) provide access to many of the rock climbing sites in the canyon. Trails included in these loops are: Left Fork Trail, Middle Fork Trail, and Right Fork Trail. Panoramic views east into Sanpete Valley and beyond to the Wasatch Plateau reveal themselves as you near the top.
