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

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

We did a simple, easy, out and back hike rather than the whole loop starting to the right where the trail forks after following the riverbed for about half a mile. Kids loved the traction on the stones allowing them to climb high on everything...More

Took us 1.5 hours to reach this canyon from Moab, easy enough to find, but make sure you're gassed up! What the other reviews don't tell you is the signage in the canyon is horrible. We started down the dry bed and saw a well...More

A beautiful 8 mile loop trail with 2 sections of slot canyons. Several big ups/downs, need scrambling skills. The trail to the right of the fork is a nice in and out hike and has the nicest features.

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
