The slot in the lower end of Little Wild Horse Canyon extends 0.8 miles and is 300 feet deep in some places, with rocks similar in hue and form to the famous Antelope Canyon, just not quite so brightly colored. The place is easily accessed by driving 5.4 miles along a good gravel/sandy track heading west from the popular Goblin Valley State Park, and has a BLM-maintained trailhead. Primitive camping is available little way further west along the track. Adjacent Bell Canyon is not nearly as enclosed but does have some nice eroded rocks, and both ravines may be explored along a 7.8 mile loop. Obstacles are limited to some minor chokestones and, in wet weather, pools a few feet deep.

Location: Along Wild Horse Road, west of Goblin Valley State Park - details
