Zebra and Tunnel Slots

A pleasant, beautiful and mostly flat hike. The trail starts after the "no collections" sign and can be found easily following footsteps. It follows the wash for the first 2.5 miles or so. The trail divides there, take a left to go to Zebra. You will find the entrance easily following footsteps. If you hang a right, you can do an extra loop and enter tunnel canyon from the other side. Tunnel canyon is generally filled with water and unless you are prepared to get wet and/or cold it is advisable to approach it from the zebra side. It is close to the zebra entrance, towards the right when coming towards zebra. Btw, we did the long loop and explored an adjacent wash. This was quite beautiful; however, there was quicksand (fiancé momentarily slipped in knee-deep), so be careful.

The Golden Cathedral Trail

This is a challenging hike through slickrocks, deep desert sand and requires good navigational skills. There are cairns to mark the trailhead for about a mile and then you're on your own. The best guide I have found is http://backcountrypost.com/trail-guides/golden-cathedral.97/ .

Did a little section below lower Calf Creek. Crossed the river several times and some nice scenic views.

A bit of a hike for the shortness of the slot but we were doing 7 hikes in two days and this one was en route so we added it.

Petrified Forest Nature Trail

Trail was great! Initial climb out from parking lot was the hardest section on this part of the trail. Partway up the trail, there's an intersection with another, more strenuous loop called the Sleeping Rainbow Loop (actually, I forget the name, but it's rainbow something). It's much steeper, but this is where you will find the majority of the petrified trees in this park. I would HIGHLY recommend if you do this trail to also embark on the Rainbow loop as well. It adds an additional 0.6 miles to the hike but is very much worth it.
