80 Proof Canyon is a large wash system that sits to the West of Slide Rock State Park. Serving 'When 80 Proof Is Not Enough" and "White Lightning". You can easily stare up towards the 80 Proof Wall, which sits above the wash, just as you drive over the bridge at Slide Rock State Park. Look for a large white tombstone shaped wall.

Getting There 

From Slide Rock State Park hike West out of the apple orchard and into 80 Proof. Follow a good hikers trail for 10min. Before canyon wall steepen and eventually dead ends at a waterfall exit the canyon and continue to hike West on slick rock above 80 Proof below. As the wash begins to turn towards the North, drop back into the wash and thrash towards The 80 Proof Wall.
