  • This wonderful hidden gem is truly hidden. Location is right before you reach Goblin Valley State Park (NOT the gravel road that Google Maps will take you- unless you have a VERY robust vehicle), you will see a sign that says “Little Wild Horse Canyon” that will lead you to the trailhead. It’s about 0.5 or 0.75 miles until you reach the first bit of narrow canyon. We only hiked the first section as the rest were flooded from previous rainfall, so about 2 miles round trip, and it was totally worth it! I still felt like we got the whole slot canyon experience. It was beautiful. We went on a Sunday afternoon around 4pm in July and we were (surprisingly!) the only ones there. One of my favorite Utah hikes (including the Zion ones!). Highly worth a stop if you’re coming from Zion, Bryce Canyon, or Capitol Reef on your way to Moab. Probably only about an hour or half an hour out of your way.
  • Oh my gosh! I had no idea what I was in for until we got there. We had heard it was a wonderful hike, and a great canyon, but to find the slot canyon there, as breathtaking as it was, was a total surprise. Perfect hike. Not too long, not too hard, but filled with one of a kind experiences and views.
