Goblin Valley is an amazing place. Unfortunately people are allowed to roam anywhere in the park..You can imagine the havoc brought about by loads of unsupervised children. That said, the Goblins Lair is relief from the crowds. A nice trail around the other side of the valley that is sparsely traveled. I only ran into to a pair of women who were looking for the "lair." Not a difficult hike, mostly flat with a scramble up to the lair. As in most hikes that are more remote, it is better to have some company.. I didn't, but I am careful when climbing or descending scree slopes. Was lucky enough to get some interesting light from the top. Like some others on this site, this was combined with a visit to Little Wild Horse Canyon.

Easy trail putting you among the goblins. Like making pictures in the clouds, you can imagine all the different goblins that reside along the trail. Watch out for the wind as it can lift the sand and fill your eyes with dirt. Maybe the goblins are unhappy with all the visitors?

Went hiking with our dog on the Mega Steps trail, (2.7m) with beautiful scenery towards the end of that trail, then looped back the Baby Steps Trail (1m), then the Dino Flow Trail (1m). All trails are very clearly marked. There are many other trails, primarily for biking but also great to hike. Parked our 31ft Class C on the main parking lot and walked a short biking trail about 0.7m towards the start of the Mega steps trail. Amazing biking and hiking trails.

Crack Canyon

One of the MOST AMAZING spots ever! i couldn't do little wildhorse slot canyons due to the 20% chance of rain... next time!
Goblin Valley is like an alternate universe. Profound!

kind of a unique place, you can make this hike as long as you want really as you wander through Goblins, Easy hike on a dirt like surface, go early it gets very hot

Definitely would combine Pine Tree Arch & Tunnel Arch together (they are right next to each other), pretty easy hike, few small hills, walking on dirt & sand. Could hike down to Landscape Arch, worth it if you have the time, enjoy this sight before it's gone forever!!!

next time I'm coming in winter.

hot as hell.

now I know what hell is going to feel like.

hot but goblins are cool.

Fun! Really beautiful! Really simple, could have used rope in a few places to climb down/up but not necessary.

This was a cool little trail with awesome, historic pictographs! I'd say total this hike was about 8 miles, not 6. The trailhead says 7, but someone scratched in 8-8.5 which I found to be more accurate. The bottom of the canyon is all sand which can get pretty tiresome to walk through so be ready for that. 4 panels of pictographs total and you have to go to the great gallery at the end because it's amazing! Cute little antelope squirrel at the end too trying to steal your food so beware! The climb out of the canyon is about 800 feet and it's not too awful if you just bust it out! Get out there early to beat the heat!
