Hype:

The Dry Fork Narrows of Coyote Gulch is a fun and very easy hike through a shaded, sandstone canyon. While not a true slot canyon, it is still very narrow and can be enjoyed by the whole family. The canyon floor is covered with sand and gravel that make the walking very easy for most of the trail. The approach is about 0.5 miles. The entire canyon is only about 0.6 miles long

Story

After our hike to Brimstone Gulch and Little Canyon, Zac and I met up with Arianne, Tara, and Savannah at the mouth of Dry Fork Narrows of Coyote Gulch.

Since we were already there, we decided to hike the Dry Fork Narrows of Coyote Gulch even though the girls had just barely finished it.

Dry Fork Narrows of Coyote Gulch is a fun and very easy hike through a shaded, sandstone canyon.

While not a true slot canyon, it is still very narrow and can be enjoyed by the whole family.

The canyon floor is covered with sand and gravel that make the walking very easy for most of the trail.

The entire canyon is only about 0.6 miles long.

We turned around shortly before the canyon opened up. There was a cool log wedged between the two canyon walls about 30-40 feet off the ground.

It took us 25 minutes to return to the car. That means that Zac and I explored 3 canyon in 5 hours and 20 minutes for a total of 8.1 miles.

We then went to camp to hang out for a while, then we went to Batty Pass Caves.
