Zebra and Tunnel Slots Professional Review and Guide

"The striations in the sandstone walls give Zebra its name. The stripes zip, zag, and weave their way in fantastic patterns. If you have a day pack, remove it before moving upcanyon; it’s easier than trying to fight it against the narrow canyon walls. About 30 minutes into Zebra Canyon, there are three large potholes.

More experienced hikers may be able to climb around these pools, but if they’re deep, or you prefer not to get wet, it’s best to turn around here. Above the potholes, the canyon continues for another mile or more. However, those ending the hike at the potholes have seen the most scenic parts of Zebra Canyon."

It's true that you can't get too far up Zebra before hitting the potholes that hold water and make it tough to climb around, but this is still worth the hike. Zebra's walls are so visually textured that there is nothing else like it. I was there in the late afternoon and had it to myself. You might not be able to hike far, but the area I was in was worth about 45 minutes of fun.

We went all the way to Harris Wash, where we met a German couple going back to the trailhead. They said they could only get 50 meters up the Zebra canyon until they ran into some pools of standing water. They were told by another group that there were waist deep pools in the most scenic part of the canyon. We decided to come back to Zebra Canyon at another time. However, the hike to Harris Wash was very photogenic.
