Merwin slot canyon is a nice slot canyon located on public land near Kanab, Utah to the east of Zion National Park. Getting there requires a bit of hiking and probably a decent 4×4, but when combined with nearby Bay Bill slot canyon, it makes for a nice half-day hike. To get to Merwin slot canyon, you have to walk 1.6 miles from the parking place up a creek bottom. At the beginning of the slot is Merwin Arch. Below are pictures from our visit, and after the pictures you’ll find useful links to a detailed description of what Merwin slot canyon is like and how to see it as well as a link to a ranked list of all the slot canyons I’ve visited with each having detailed descriptions of each. Take a look, and I think you’ll find yourself becoming a slot canyon junkie like I am.
