Trip Description

Angel Creek is a short drive from town, in 15 minutes we’ll reach our point of entrance where you will grab your gear and walk approximately 10-20 minutes to the canyon.

Once suited and booted you will enter Angel Creek; you will begin the canyon and your adventure with a rappel. As you progress with your descent, you begin to notice the canyon walls towering over you, at the highest point they are 30ft+.

Between rappels you will have some time to absorb the beauty around you, walking through the canyon and enjoying the scenery with the opportunity to see the rock change into bright red sandstone.

As the trip comes to an end, you finish with a five minute hike along a steep ridge with fixed lines to support you. Once you reach the top, the ridge flattens out for an easy five minute stroll back to the van.


This is an introductory canyon, no previous canyoning or related experience is required. Reasonable fitness is a must. Swimming experience is not necessary, but you will get wet! Trips confirm with two people and the minimum age to join us in Angel Creek is 12 years old. However, after July 4th children aged 10 and up can join us in Angel Creek. Travelling solo?
