Beaver Bay Canyon has a lot of bang for its buck. A short approach leads to a short, but interesting and pretty canyon. The exit? Well, it's almost literally a hop skip and a jump from the end of the canyon back to your car. Not a canyoneer? No problem, hiking up from the bottom is a fun outing that still allows you to see most of the canyon. The length makes this a great after dinner hike.

Warning: This route requires crossing the Fremont River. In much of the year, the river is very shallow and easy to wade, but when water is knee deep or more, it can be very fast and dangerous. A fall during the crossing could easily be fatal, sweeping someone downstream and over the Fremont River Falls. Do not do this canyon unless the river is shallow and easy to cross!
