Most slots on the Colorado Plateau occur in Navajo sandstone but Little Death Hollow is an exception, cutting instead through the underlying Wingate sandstone, the rock which forms many of the huge sheer cliffs around Lake Powell. The drainage is located on the less easily reached east side of the Escalante River, and it narrows quite gradually, the slot starting only after a 5 mile walk from the trailhead. The enclosed part is 2 miles long, and is largely free of any chokestones or pools; to see all the narrows does need a long hike, however, typically taking at least eight hours.

Location: 12 miles along Wolverine Loop Road, forking off the Burr Trail - details
