Goblin Valley

Goblin Valley State Park is a unique little valley filled with formations carved by wind and rain. Although the park is off the beaten path, it is well worth the trip.

Goblin Valley is basically a huge playground made of dirt. The "goblins" in the valley are the hoodoos, or erosion-carved pillars and hills. You can choose to limit your visit to a few photos taken from the overlook or you spend can some time exploring the area.

There are not really any set trails in the park, but you will find many paths that lead around the area. Take a short loop through the towers, or head to the north end of the main valley to explore the cliffs with carved out caves and slot canyons.

Make sure you bring water with you, especially in the summer. If you are exploring in mid-summer, you should limit your mid-day hiking, or try to hike in the morning or evening, since the temperatures are extreme, and there is little or no shade.

While you are in the area, visit Little Wild Horse Canyon.
