There are no signs. As you pass a cattle guard, you will see a bunch of cars parked to the right. If you glance over to the left, you will see a foot path. More than likely, this is the trailhead for Zebra and Tunnel...More

This trip has no technical issues. The trail has no markers but does not need I them as it is so strong. Allow at least 3 hours unless you are a professional trail runner!

When we booked the tour of Zebra and Tunnel Slot canyons, I wasn't sure of what I was signing up for. I recommend having a guide because of the remoteness of these canyons. We had Jeff Sanders with Desert Dawn and he was great. He...More

The hike to this slot canyon was beautiful! We saw so much wildlife and the cliffs and rock formations along the trail were amazing. The canyon itself was a bit difficult to find - might have been easier if we had been given better directions...More

Im not really sure what the water level would be in April. I went in November and it might have been knee deep in patches. There was water bugs in it. I guess it all depends on the rain.
