DESCRIPTION

Lost Canyon can be reached from either the Squaw Canyon or Peek-A-Boo Trails. The Peek-A-Boo Trail crosses Lost Canyon 2.6 miles (4.2km) from the campground trail head. From there, the trail generally follows the canyon bottom up the wash, then climbs to a slickrock pass that provides excellent views of the surrounding area. The trail then traverses a sandstone bench and descends into Squaw Canyon. The low-lying sections of Lost Canyon are heavily vegetated and may involve some walking in water.
