Horseplay Canyon

Sometimes good things come in small packages. This canyon didn't look like much on the map, but turned out to be a charmer. No rappels and no wetsuit needed make this a canyon that can be enjoyed with a small pack. It has varied narrows and packs a lot of action for such a short canyon. Expect a bit of climbing, squeezing, stemming, and fun.

Note: If you are a larger canyoneer ( > 34-inch waist), there may be substantial stemming to go over the narrow sections. None should be particularly hard or exposed, but it can be a bit of work.

This makes a great addition to doing Main Butler, Upper Stair Canyon, or Fooling Around. There are a couple of excellent primitive campsites near the trailhead.
