Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon and Spooky Gulch are two beautiful slot canyons located in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah.

Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon is known for its beautiful red rock formations and narrow passageways. To reach the canyon, visitors must drive along a rough dirt road and then hike about 1.5 miles to the canyon entrance. Once inside, visitors can hike through the canyon, climbing over rocks and wading through shallow streams. The canyon is known for its narrow, winding passages and beautiful sandstone walls.

Spooky Gulch is another popular slot canyon located nearby. It is known for its narrow passageways, which can be as narrow as a few inches in some places. Visitors must hike about 1.5 miles to reach the canyon entrance, and then navigate the narrow passages inside. While the canyon is not as colorful as Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon, it is still an incredible experience for those who love exploring slot canyons.

Both Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon and Spooky Gulch can be explored in one trip, as they are located near each other. Visitors should bring plenty of water, wear sturdy hiking shoes, and be prepared for hiking and climbing over rocks. It's also important to be aware of flash flood risks in slot canyons and check weather conditions before embarking on a hike.
