If it weren't for the rather lengthy approach, this would be a classic! How can such a great canyon be so far to get to? Such is life I suppose.

Urban Cowboy does have a long approach and exit. The exit is somewhat mitigated by being a great hike with an additional rappel. The approach? Well, I guess it's a case of eating your vegetables before getting desert.

To the canyon connoisseur, don't be deterred by the approach. This is a full day, but a beautiful and rewarding one. The canyon is short, but seldom visited, and offers a very remote feel. It is well suited to those wanting a long amble with a little bit of technical thrown in for good measure. The canyon should not hold much water, making it an excellent choice in the off seasons when it might be too cool to do canyons with much water in them.
