Canyoneer, Hike, and Rock Climb

This adventure begins with a very scenic hike to a beautiful waterfall and ends with a magnificent rappel through a short slot canyon and down the waterfall. The hike to the waterfall is a great trip for all family members. Bring the family for a picnic at the bottom of the waterfall and they can marvel at your skills as you descend from above.

The hike to the waterfall is about as quick and easy as it comes and ends at the beautiful Rocky Canyon Waterfall. The trailhead starts in suburbia and goes at an easy ascent up a small path through the neighborhood and up into the canyon. Once in the canyon, you'll enter a whole new ecosystem with lush plantlife and fun rock formations.

Rock climbers can continue up the slot canyon beyond the waterfall for a popular rappel.

 

The first rappel is 60' from a tree located at the lip of the waterfall. Rappel down two short drops to the large platform located at the top of the last section of waterfall. The second rappel is 70' down the center of the waterfall. The anchor is a sling located under the giant chokestone located in the center of the stream flow.Courtesy of climb-utah.com
