Closed Canyon is a deep slot canyon that cuts through Colorado Mesa, a massive uplift between FM 170 and the Rio Grande River. The narrow geology of the canyon means the trail is in shadow most of the day. The trail is relatively straightforward, and the trailhead includes a nice shaded ramada for picnicking. It’s an excellent hike for families; just keep the kids away from the canyon’s pour-off ledge.
