Description

Windy Canyon is the place to go to get away from it all. No crowds, no parking issues, and some excellent moderate long routes with a bit of a backcountry feel.

Getting There

Windy Canyon is located a couple canyons south of Black Velvet Canyon (Mud Spring Canyon is in between). From the 159/160 intersection, head west on 160 for around 5.5 miles and make a right on an unassuming dirt road. Take the first left and go about 0.3 mile and make a right. Then go north on the most obvious road, avoiding side paths for about 0.4 mile and park where you can see Windy Canyon off to the NNW. Takes between 90 minutes and two hours to hoof up into the canyon to the climbs.
