Crack Canyon Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Uncrowded yet still gorgeous, filled with an abundance of natural cracks in walls, pocked with wind-blown holes, and home of slot slithering and downclimbs, Crack Canyon is an awfully fun canyon that is off the beaten path yet accessible enough to be a great place for families or simply those who want to avoid the far more popular areas closer to Goblin Valley."

Hiked Crack Canyon on a warm spring day. It was an easy hike aside from a little scrambling and climbing out of the slot to bypass a particularly large pool of water.
