One of the most scenic state parks in the Southwest, Goblin Valley
contains thousands of hoodoos and other curiously-shaped red rock formations, created by erosion of soft Entrada sandstone. The place is quite popular, reached by a paved road, and has a good campground. Most parts are easily explored, though a little more effort is needed to visit the higher elevation areas bordering the valley to the east, site of some of the best formations. Although lacking the color variety of some other Southwest hoodoo locations, the pinnacles at Goblin Valley are very numerous, and densely arranged.
