Peekaboo Trail

Peekaboo Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This interesting trail connects Squaw Flat Campground with the road through lower Salt Creek Canyon. An ideal way to enjoy the hike is in combination with an overnight car camp at Peekaboo Camp on the Salt Creek Road followed by a jeep ride out the next day. Most people, however, do it as a round trip from the Squaw Flat Campground in a single day.

The route crosses two other canyons on the way to Salt Creek, and some minor scrambling is required in a few places to get in and out of the streambeds. The last half of the trail is the most interesting, as the trail navigates its way across the frozen sea of slickrock separating Lost Canyon from Salt Creek Canyon. The area is a labyrinth of sandstone canyons and side canyons, which the trail avoids by following a tortuous route across the ledges and benches above the canyon rims. Trail: Well marked, easy to follow."
