Wire Pass Slot Canyon

Located in Kanab, Utah, the Wire Pass is short drainage that joins the much longer Buckskin Gulch slot canyon, and provides a convenient entrance point. The streamway is 1.7 miles along a wide, meandering streambed between low reddish cliffs. It is a short tributary of Buckskin Gulch, the longest and deepest slot canyon in the Southwest. Due to the landscape of the Wire Pass, flash floods of great force do occur, but dangerous floods very rarely occur. This happens because there is nowhere else for rainwater to go and all flows down the canyon.
