Imagine this: Climbing, scrambling, canyoneering, sitting under the cool shade of cottonwood trees, walking through the burning desert, and visiting a (natural) water park, all in the same day. For even more action, you can combine Professor Creek with climbing Adobe Mesa.
The suggested route will begin at Professor Creek, route find through a colorful, but hot desert, surrounded by many incredible towers, and descend through narrows of the canyon laced with waterfalls, slippery slides, and wading and swim holes, and back to the trailhead.
In some people's opinion, the canyon approach is strenuous and the reward to effort ratio is lower than some canyons, but I found the canyon to be very enjoyable.
Note: These photos were taken 10 years ago when I didn't wear a helmet. Wear one.
