The trail to the Dry Fork Slots (officially, Dry Fork Slot, Peek-a-Boo Slot, Spooky Slot, and Brimstone Slot) begins next to the trail register. Follow the cairned trail as it winds its way through sand around some bushes, zigzags across the slick rock, and finally leads you down a sandy ravine to the bottom of a large wash. Red Canyon, or as locals call it: Peek-a-boo, does not require any hiking to get to, but instead is an adventure that has the thrill of 4-wheeling on deep sand through a desert landscape of junipers, pinions, yuccas and cacti. The Peek-A-Boo Loop Trail begins at Bryce Point and drops quickly to the canyon floor. This hike is listed as a strenuous hike due to the rapid elevation change and the length. Hikers will encounter horse/mule riders on this trail. Peek-A-Boo is a slot and corkscrew, and Spooky Gulch is a narrow slot canyon. It is worth noting, due to the restrictive nature of the some of the spaces in Spooky, this canyon is better suited for smaller body types. Adding to the cool factor of this destination is that it’s a loop — which is rare for these parts.

Peekaboo Trail is located 17 miles from Glendale traveling mainly on sand through a desert landscape of junipers, pinyons, yuccas and cacti. This trail system ties into nearby Hog Canyon and Johnson Canyon. Red Canyon or as it is called by the locals PeekaBoo is a slot canyon that is usually dry and only.35 miles long and well worth the visit.
