South Fork of Maidenwater Canyon is an intense, physical hiking slot canyon.
This is an Intermediate Canyon Trip with several rappels, potholes, partner assists, possible swims and a lot of squeezing, stemming, and pushing our bodies through some tight narrow spots in the canyon. It is amazingly fun and physical and well worth the effort to get through, but certainly not for the faint at heart.
