Munchkin Canyon is the Lucky Charms of Oz. Short and non-technical, it is a nice casual romp available to most, and a nice way to spend a couple of hours. The narrows are very narrow, and many may not fit. Hiking around the tightest section or return back via the approach route still makes for a fun outing.

Note: Though non-technical, it gets narrow enough to require some high stemming. My group found the width very easy, though people without stemming experience may find this hard or a bit unnerving. Several groups have reported finding it challenging, yet said in the end they enjoyed the canyon. A bit of a heads up and warning for those without stemming experience is warranted!
