      Absolutely amazing! Wagner was a great guide and full of knowledge. We had the entire hike to ourselves, which was so peaceful and humbling. I recommend this hike, and will probably do it again next time I’m in the area!

      Tate and Robin take on the Gulch!
      Robin_Q, Apr 2023
      My son Tate and I absolutely loved this hike. It was challenging (probably more for me than my 13 year old) but our tour guide Tom was great. There was laughter, smiles and overall fun. Tom's passion about the environment, the history and the hike itself was evident every step of the way. You will not only get a great workout, you will also learn in the process. The views were spectacular as well. It was a magical experience and I urge everyone contemplating this hike to do it! This hike will forever be etched into our memories.

      This was an amazing trip and the highlight of our vacation. Tom was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable about the area and the hike itself. It is a challenging hike getting down into the gulch but once we were in it we did not see another person all day!

      I am almost speechless at this experience. It was that amazing. As this was not the private tour, we were not sure if there would be another group joining us. There wasn’t so it was just my friend, myself and our guide, Tom. Tom did a great job coordinating when to pick us up from our hotel as well as checking on any dietary restrictions since he provided lunch. The hike itself was great but Tom made this whole trip that much better. Personally, I am mildly wary of heights. Tom was an excellent guide in navigating us down the gulch. The 100ft descent may sound daunting but it was no sweat. The slot canyon offers incredible photo opportunities and is truly a one-of-a-kind adventure. An added bonus is that Buckskin has very little foot traffic. We saw a total of five other hikers on our trek. You really do get a personalized experience. As long as you are comfortable with some mild rock scaling, this trip is for you!

      Amazing Hike

      Highly recommend booking the Buckskin Gulch Day Hike! Absolutely gorgeous walking through the gulch. Our guide, Marci from Backcountry Found, was very knowledgeable and pointed out several different sights/features along the hike. Backcountry Found made all the arrangements (getting permits, providing transportation, packing snacks and lunch, etc). All we had to do was be ready for a fun adventure! Thank you Marci for guiding us on an amazing hike!
