We spent a wonderful day with Benjamin of Speaking Rock Tours. Kind, patient and knowledgeable, with a deep and profound personal connection to the Canyon, Benjamin is a wonderful guide.

You can do a day hike, jeep ride or camp down in the Canyon near Sliding Rock Ruins. Howard Smith runs the tours and it's homeland you can camp in. He also owns Spider Canyon Camp Grounds up top. I'll be back

I just emailed Oscar from a list of tour providers that we received from Sacred Canyon Lodge. We emailed the day before and luckily Oscar was available. We were able to call him as well since it was short notice.
