Goblin Valley, Utah is unlike any other place in the world, and a place that captures and stretches the imagination, challenging you with its geologic whimsy. The landscape, covered with sandstone goblins and fascinating formations, is often compared to Mars. Explore the geology, and camp among the nooks and gnomes. Bring the family and experience this amazing place by hiking, camping, mountain biking, and exploring the surrounding canyons. Go with a guide to experience canyoneering and OHV trails in the encompassing landscape. Reserve a campsite or yurt for an overnight under the pristine, star-filled dark skies.
Also outside the park, hidden in the sandstone dome called the San Rafael Reef, is a half-day canyon adventure at Little Wild Horse Canyon that has become a must-hike non-technical slot canyon on Utah's Road to Mighty. Like all hikes in Southern Utah, carry plenty of water, food, sunscreen, and appropriate footwear. Make a reservation on the Utah State Parks reservation site.
