The Black Hole is a narrow slot canyon day-hike that requires swimming through long cold pools between hiking segments. It’s a popular but dangerous canyoneering spot that is prone to flash floods.

With a perfect forecast (no rain showers anywhere in the region) this down-canyon hike is a fun adventure. You’ll need a shuttle vehicle (or hitchhike) to get back to the upper trailhead and avoid a hot hike along Highway 95. The Black Hole is located in White Canyon between Natural Bridges National Monument and the Hite Marina on upper Lake Powell (Colorado River).

If you plan to do this trip, be sure to stop into the Natural Bridges visitor center to discuss it with staff there.
