Overview: Like Ding and Dang this canyon offer a fun loop with some small narrow sections. The Canyon is fairly short and many will loop around down Bell Canyon. The canyon offers enough obstacles to make for an interesting hike yet easy enough for the high adventurer. This desert is hot so bring plenty of water.


From I-70 head south on Hwy 24 to Temple Mountain road. Take Temple Mountain Road to Goblin Valley Road, about 5 miles and turn left (south). Follow for about 6 miles just before the enterance to Goblin Vally State Park and take the paved road on the right (Wild Horse Road). Follow Wild Horse for about 5 miles past a prominent parking lot at Bell and Little Wild Horse Canyons.
