IRON COUNTY, Utah — Three hikers are safe Thursday afternoon after being stranded in Kanaraville Falls due to high water.

Kanaraville Falls is located in a slot canyon named Kanara Creek Canyon.

According to Lt. Del Schlosser with Iron County Sheriff’s Office, a Search and Rescue team was dispatched after the hikers called for help.

The hikers ended up self-rescuing themselves, and no one was injured, Schlosser said.

Schlosser warns hikers to stay away from all falls and especially slot canyons when storms are possible.
