Oh Kanab it’s been great! We will be parting way’s with Hitch’n Post RV Park tomorrow morning. The park has been great and the people amazing! We had full hook ups, a spacious pad and kind neighbors. The place is super dog friendly and they don’t discriminate against any breed. The laundromat is next door, church across the street and the grocery store is within walking distance!
I would recommend visiting Best Friends Animal Sanctuary if you’re looking to adopt a new pet or just have a love for em, they always have a need for volunteers. It’s quite amazing scenery, thee most lovable animal’s you’ve ever seen and all of the people are super friendly. They have a vegetarian buffet style cafeteria that has a majestic overlook onto a red rock valley.
From what we found Kanab has an abundance of hiking trail’s, a bunch of which are dog friendly. Squaw Trail is a short, skinny, and sometimes steep, dog friendly trail.
K-Hill was a trail head right outside of a neighborhood behind the Wendy’s. It didn’t state whether it was or wasn’t dog friendly but we took the kiddo’s and they loved it!
Also Buckskin Gulch and Wirepass trail’s were breathtaking. We highly recommend starting at Wire pass trail head if you’re wanting to see slot canyons for miles. Luckily we read beforehand about an 8′ drop right as you enter Wire Pass and that there is an alternative trail (just to the right before it turns into slot canyon, it’s marked by stacked rocks) that takes you up and around the drop. Hadn’t we known about it I’m not sure how we would’ve gotten the dog’s through it.
There are also some ancient petroglyphs that can be seen to your right as you’re exiting Wire Pass (make sure to sign the notebook in the ammo can too!) If you’re planning on hiking either of these or the Wave, be sure to check the weather as these canyons experience flash flooding. There are some amazing video’s on YouTube.. we suggest you live vicariously through them during flash flood season.
