Pleiades Canyon, UT

Deep Canyons

Zion National Park is crammed with can­yon­eers, which is why Moabguide Matt Moore cased the empty La Sal Range for new routes. Thefruits of his labor: a canyon he calls Pleiades. This waterfall-riddled, surprisingly lush sandstone chasm has a location so hidden that even locals can't find it. On a day trip ($150; deserthighlights.com), you'll rappel through cascades, scramble through slickrock narrows, wade through moss-draped pools, and get back to town in time to kick back with a tart hefe­weizen from the Moab Brewery.
