Dryfalls, deep mud and seasonal pools create a variety of obstacles in Bull Valley Gorge, though the canyon can usually be explored without too much effort. The drainage - an upper tributary of the Paria River - forms a one mile slot, through light-colored, thin-layered, angled Navajo sandstone, opening out at the lower end to a deep, shady ravine containing occasional pine trees. The access route (Skutumpah Road) crosses the slot near its upper end, and directly below the bridge is the unusual sight of the wreck of a pickup truck, wedged here ever since an accident in 1954.

Location: 10.5 miles south of Cannonville along the unpaved Skutumpah Road - details
