Two very unique slot canyons Peek-a-Book gets its name from the many natural bridges overhead, and Spooky is so-named for its dark, almost cave-like feel. Most commonly (as directed by the park), people go up Peek-a-Boo and down Spooky (clockwise). The only difficult part is having to climb up into Peek-a-Boo.

      The climb into peekaboo is not the only difficult part of this loop. Coming down Spooky requires a challenging down climb through a rockfall where you need to squeeze under one boulder and drop 7' down to another, with consequences if you slip! It's obviously possible but if you're not comfortable/able you'll need to backtrack all the way through peekaboo (and down climb the entrance of course).
