“A beautiful canyon housing the famous Goosenecks - a series of picturesque narrows you can't miss!”— Hunter R
Sulphur Creek is a perennial stream, but its volume depends significantly on irrigation operations near Torrey. The flow is often low enough that boots can be worn for much of the hike unless recent flooding has developed pools in the narrows. The temptation is high in the summer to hike in sandals or water shoes, but the three significant obstacles along the route are more safely negotiated with sturdier footwear.
