These two interesting canyons run roughly parallel for a distance of four miles east of the Land of Standing Rocks; hence they present a fine opportunity for a loop hike into the Maze. Be cautioned, however, that the seldom-used trails are primitive, and at one point a good deal of scrambling is required. If you are a seasoned hiker looking for something more challenging than usual this might be just the hike you are looking for. But if you haven't had much experience climbing in and out of canyons I wouldn't recommend it.
