Hero: Slickhorn
small-sr Icon
Slickhorn Road goes deep into the southern reaches of Cedar Mesa ending at the Water Canyon Trailhead. A spur off of Slickhorn goes to Government Trailhead. Both trailheads are used to hike or canyoneer into the Grand Gulch drainage complex. The views of Cedar Mesa, Grand gulch, and Monument Valley from the end of the trail are extraordinary. The trail is mostly dirt but has sections crossing slick rock. While predominantly sandy, the trail can be very slick after heavy rains and require 4WD. Camping for two vehicles is possible at Water Canyon Trailhead.
