This hike takes you down into the Willow Gulch slot to the Broken Bow Arch. This track shows the full slot drop all the way to Fortymile Creek Gulch. The hike starts out easy on the sand like most of the slot hikes, progresses to sandy wash walking between high sandstone walls. Eventually the walls get very narrow and there is some very narrow slot hiking involved.

Access Info

Hike starts at the Willow Gulch Trailhead at the end of Sooner Bench Road.
