  • Fun trip to this part of Canyonlands NP! The dirt road into horseshoe Canyon was no problem - no 4 WD or high clearance vehicle needed. The volunteer rangers did an outstanding job of explaining...

  • great half day hike if you're in the area
  • This is a fantastic place to visit. The pictographs and petroglyphs are in a remote canyon. We had a reverent feeling of awe and appreciation for the people who left their legacy on its walls. Plan wisely, leave early. You have a 32 mile dirt road to navigate before you begin the 8 1/2 mile round trip hike. Take water/Gatorade, and snacks. You may want binoculars. Give yourself 4 to 5 hours to enjoy the seclusion and scenery. There are four main galleries, The first two being on opposite sides of the Canyon walls. Follow the rocked lined trails, don’t stay in the wash or you will miss. The grand Gallery is at the end. It just keeps getting bigger and better!
  • Wrong pin; the location on Google Maps will put you over five hours away from the actual location. The actual location is ~4.5 hours SE of Salt Lake City. To get actual location download or use the web version of AllTrails for directions.
  • One of the best places for real wild adventure. Away from civilization, lights, rush and noisy cities. This is the place where you can experience amaizing night sky, howling coyotes and of course beautiful canyons. For sure I'll come back here some day for few days of hiking.
  • Really beautiful trail, bring water and snacks. Camping at trailhead the night before works well for an early start. Beware of heat in summer months. Weather was perfect for me in November.
