Description 

It appears there are some routes here at the mouth of the canyon, but i don't have any info other than you can see the anchors from the parking area. If you hike 1 mile into the canyon you will find three towers that have a little to offer for everyone! The trail is flat and well established, and it should probably only take you 20 minutes to get to the towers.

Getting There 

Hunter Canyon is easy to find. If you are driving down Kane Springs Road, it is about 1 mile from the bottom of the switchbacks. It has parking on both sides of the road and is right before you cross the creek/creek bed.
