We were walking the Narrows on a super busy day and went into Orderville Canyon not knowing what it actually was. But less people were going that direction so we followed that path for a while. Stopped before the waterfalls because there was a tree...More

Orderville Canyon is a slot canyon approximately three miles up the Narrows. It is far narrower than the narrows and bouldering is required in some places. Be sure to check the flash flood potential before entering any slot canyon. When I visited, a permit was...More

Be sure to bring your harness and rope and have some skill in rappelling. This is great for beginners who have someone with them to "show them the ropes". Some obstacles are challenging. Water is cold midway through but "warms up" once you reach the...More

12 miles of hiking, rock scrambling, rappelling, swimming, etc. Took us around 9-10 hours from top down. Orderville meets up with the Narrows which was a bonus. Everything that we trained for we got to do! Definitely worth it if you're a beginner in canyoneering!...More

This is a fun, pretty easy canyon for beginning canyoneers. There are about 3 repels, only about 20-30 ft each. The top down hike can easily be done in a day and is pretty easy going.
