    Please be advised:

    For immediate release-- In an effort to ease visitor pressure and preserve the quality of the hiking experience of the Kanarra Falls scenic slot canyon hike located in Southwest Utah, the town of Kanarraville, along with Iron County Government and SITLA recently entered into a land management agreement; part of which is to transition the general public to a fee-based permit system to regulate the number of people hiking in Kanarra Falls Canyon.
    As of May 1, 2018 anyone wishing to hike Kanarra Falls must purchase a hiking permit. Currently, there are no limits on the number of hiking permits available; however daily limits may be considered in the future. Permits can be purchased for $8 per person online at There is a nominal transaction fee and the permit includes parking at both the Town and Sweet Spot parking lots. Hiking permits can also be purchased at the Kanarra Falls trail head, however the transaction will be credit card/debit only. No cash transactions will be allowed and there are no refunds.

    There is one group permit available per day for non-profits that allows up to 30 people in the group. The cost is $25 per group. Advance reservation through and proof of non-profit status (IRS tax designation letter or state tax exempt certificate) will be required. The group permit is not available to commercial tours and outfitters. Commercial operations must purchase the $8 per person permit for their guests.

    Seems to be the guaranteed outcome of making a canyon "hikeable."
