Kanab Utah

Kane County

Kanab Utah is largest town in Kane County and the gateway to three national Parks, five national monuments, a renowned National Recreational Area, two state parks, two national forests, and unlimited outdoor adventures.  In every direction there are breath-taking views: the unique vistas of The Grand Canyon to the south,Zion National Park to the west, Bryce Canyon National Park to the north, and Lake Powell/Glen Canyon to the East. Native Americans have lived in this region for thousands of years and populations of the native people have come and gone.  Evidence of ancient cultures is prevalent with petroglyphs and pictographs decorating our canyons.

This area of Southern Utah is famous for its numerous slot canyons – long narrow slits cut through sandstone, with towering walls so close that you can barely squeeze through in some areas. Formed by water over thousands of years, these hairline cracks in the earth’s surface are a hiker and a photographer’s paradise of tight-quartered caverns. Whether you’re looking for a beginner or an expert canyon adventure, world famous canyon hikes like “Peekaboo”, Zion “Narrows”, the “Subway”, “Red Cave”, “Bull Valley Gorge”, “Buckskin Gulch”, and dozens of others await your exploration.  The geologic history of the Grand Canyons region is remarkable as this area has been impacted significantly by earthquakes, volcanoes, and the erosion of lakes, rivers, wind and time.
