Leprechaun Canyon is part of the Irish Canyons group of canyons in the North Wash area south of Hanksville, Utah. The canyon is very popular with rock climbers that typically drop into one of the upper forks of the canyon. The first mile of the lower part of the canyon is very hikeable and has a nice section of narrows that ends in a slot. This post is for just that portion of the canyon that can be done without any gear or rock climbing skills.
