These slots are all very short, but are fantastic for beginners, or those looking for a short outing while passing by. These are also really great to link up with Woody Canyon to fill out a day.

A motivated group can easily do all three of these, and Woody Canyon, in a moderate/long day. Beware: Little Fork requires advanced natural anchor skills, though Woodsy and Woodchuck are straightforward and suitable for most.

On my first trip through, we did Blushing Bride/Jilted Lover in the morning, then Woodchuck and Little Fork in the afternoon. The next day we did Woodsy and Woody Canyon. This made for a full weekend in the short days of early spring, but is a great way to see a bunch of canyons in a couple of days.
