This canyon is only four hours far from the town of Creel in the state of Chihuahua. The Sinforosa canyon is claimed by many to have the most beautiful views in all the cooper canyon system. It covers an area of 94,571 square miles.
Some of the most spectacular look outs of the whole mountain range are located in this canyon. Among the most admirable are those of the summits of Sinforosa, 18 Kms (11 miles) to the south of Guachochi town. From here, you will appreciate a sequence of narrow passes that end with the view of the green river in the bottom of the canyon. At the top of Sinforosa canyon, a well traced and easy to follow path descends to the bottom of the canyon.
The Sinforosa canyon can also be explored hiking throughout the bottom following a most abrupt and an spectacular section of the canyon floor. This is one of the most impressive tours of the whole Sierra Tarahumara, since it squeezes between narrow passes and gigantic walls of stone that can get higher than 1 Km. The hike is difficult so you need excellent physical condition and I strongly recommend to hire an expert guide in Guachochi town.
