Picked the most wrong time to go. I planned an entire vacation around this spot. No Parking, too many un-leased dogs. We didn't even make it to the trail. Turned around. :(

The highlight of our trip in my opinion. Beautiful slot canyon, easy walk along riverbed. There was an area where we had to scramble up and around a hollowed out section, but otherwise, the trail was super easy and my hesitant 5yr old did just...More

Goblin Valley is located in a state park and on BLM land. The state park is noted for its hoodoos and weird balanced-rock formations and is extremely popular with the people of Utah who come from far and wide to play amidst the odd assortment...More

This is a beautiful hike, only if you are able to find it. There are no signs from the parking lot to indicate where this hike begins. Also, when you eventually find it , there is no easy way to get down to the hike...More

We didn't do the whole trail because there was and area almost at the end that had water waist deep and we didn't want to get that wet in the cold water. But if you do the first 2/3 of it you will go through...More

What a cool round-trip canyon hike. We started up Bell which is probably less interesting than Little Wild Horse but is a nice challenging beginners canyon hike. There are some dry falls, some benches and some large boulders that require some scrambling and some ingenuity...More

A bit unclear which way to go when entering the canyon. The right-hand fork leads along the canyon floor and hits a dry fall after about a hundred yards. At the start of the canyon one must go up the side of the canyon to...More

We had planned to go early but didn't get there until about 9:30, so it was already warm. I recommend taking a photo of the map before you go in; we had a look a couple times to see how far we'd gone. Pay attention...More

First stopped at Goblin State park, then came here. What a cool hike. You do have to scramble a little in spots, but not too difficult. We came late afternoon, so did not see many people. Felt like we had it mostly to ourselves. We...More

It took us under 4 hours to see both Little Wild Horse and Bell. Bell was not nearly as interesting but it was easier. You could try going down Little Wild Horse, then coming back instead of doing the loop, as a lot of the... More

It's about a 1/2 mi up a wide, dry wash. You'll come to a rock obstacle. You can climb over it directly, or along the left side, fairly easily. Very shortly afterwards, there's small sign. Bell Canyon is straight ahead... More
