Trail shared by Sarah Baker

An easy doubletrack leading to a slot canyon or stunning overlook.

Features Views

Family Friendly Though an out-and-back journey would be just over 5 miles, the track is wide and very gradual with opportunities for amazing views. A terrific family day trip option.

Description

From the low-clearance/2wd parking area, the Upper Muley Twist Access Road heads north. In less than two miles, the majestic Saddle Arch appears on the left. Ever narrowing, this canyon continues to get more interesting the further you get, and it eventually reaches the high-clearance/4wd parking area.

From this spot, you have the option of heading east to Strike Valley Overlook, or continuing north on Upper Muley Twist Trail as it becomes a beautiful slot canyon.

Able to drive most of this access road with my rental SUV but stopped 2 miles in to play it safe. There was an area in the wash I could not to pass. 2mi
