Brief Directions

Little Wild Horse Canyon is located on UT24 about 24 miles from I-70 and is near Goblin Valley SP. Look for signs near Goblin Valley SP for Little Wild Horse Canyon. You'll come to a parking lot in about 5 miles. In case of recent rains the road may be washed out as you have to cross a small sandy wash. After parking take the trail leading to the dry wash and follow it for a few hundrew yards. You'll come to a dry waterfall about 8 feet high. You can climb up in areas or climb up the incline on your left and come back down. Continue about 200 yards past the dry waterfall and turn right at the easily missed fork into Little Wild Horse Canyon. The other fork leads to Bell Canyon. Watch for cairns indicating the turn.

Notes

Pay attention to weather as storms can produce flash floods. Do not hike if storms are predicted. Raging runoff from storms are what makes and continues to shape these slot canyons. Take plenty of water and walking poles.

Description

A small lizard was blending into the sandstone canyon wall and hoping I didn't see him.
