Following the trail is confusing and poorly marked, but just follow the dried out riverbed/use your instinct and you’ll be fine. More of a hike than anticipated but still easy. Definitely check this out if you can! It feels like you’re on a different planet.

Pretty dry so go early as it gets hot! The water smells terrible, we had a very stinkt dog all the way back in the car... but the drive was fine to go to the trailhead.

Awesome hoodoos. There's no set trail and you're free to explore, so difficulty can range from family friendly stroll to moderately challenging scrambles I see a lot of comments about the road so figure I'd add my 2 cents: yes it's an unpaved BLM road and if you've never driven down one it may be unpleasant, but relative to the other BLM roads I've driven in Utah it's in pretty good shape, much wider, and has greatly fewer potholes

YOU NEED TO KNOW that the dirt road you take to get here is brutal. If you have any hesitation about your car or it’s at all raining just skip it. It was a cool little thing to see and play around on, but not a hike and 100% not worth that terrible drive.

Very neat and easy trail. Came on a Saturday in late May and not many people. The road to get here is rough! The trail itself didn’t have a ton of water- you could pretty easily avoid walking through it. No more than 1-2 inches deep and you can hop from side to side to avoid it. Nice easy to hike slot canyons. Very kid friendly

LOST WALLET: Trail was amazing except I lost my wallet there. Please call 616-915-9400 immediately if you found a white-ish gray wallet at the trailhead parking lot. I owe you my first born if you found it!

May 2020: Backpacked the 3ish miles in to the fork, set up my tent on top of some rock in the middle (sweet spot), and finished both left and right fork the next morning. Beautiful place! Left fork is a short but great little slot, right fork is longer and though the slots aren’t as spectacular as Spooky/Peekaboo, it had some amazing colors and stripes/patterns, and had lots of open areas with options for exploring that could easily add a couple hours onto the hike. 4 stars because of the long, almost gross beginning (first 1-2 miles by the creek had mosquitoes and smelled a bit, gross mud, etc) but the rest of the hike was very pretty. Still got my slot canyon fix out of it. Got tired of walking on sand by the end of the hike, haha.

The Cosmic Ashtray is an amazing Geologic feature. You have to have Maps pre-download to finish the final 1.5 miles. The first 3 miles follows a dirt road. Once you are off the dirt road, look for hidden water holes! We did this hike 5/24/20

I wouldn’t call this a trail, so much as a picnic area, or rest stop with a ton of hoodoos. Don’t get me wrong, very pretty and definitely accessible for kids and elderly, but as said below, there’s no real hike. You can walk around whenever you want. Does get packed and parking easily overflows.

Great little hike. And the scenery was amazing.

Very nice and quiet trail, mainly in the wash. Nice views on both sides and easy to follow. The destination makes the distance worth it, the hoodoos are magnificent and very unique. There’s no shade on the trail so it’s better doing it during spring or fall and use plenty of sunscreen! :-)

You have to go thru unpaved road for about 25 minutes to get here. The trail is very easy and flat, dog friendly. Came on Memorial Day weekend and it was moderately busy, not too bad tho. Overall great easy family trail for kids with nice views

Fantastic fun! We got to the trail head at 1015am only 5 other cars. When we returned the parking lot was full and spilling out on to the road. Hike was very enjoyable. Water temp was so nice and refreshing. Depth of water was 2-4” in most spots. Hiked well pass the junction with Sheep Creek where there is no water but really cool colored rock walls and trees.

Easy hike today with a bit of water flowing.

Surprisingly fun hike. I thought the toadstools were really cool and were awesome for photographing. By the western spur of the trail, there is a jaw-dropping vista of the canyon you absolutely need to check out! Unfortunately a lot of ppl missed it

Nice flat hike. Shade in the slots but otherwise exposed. Beautiful trees and some places to climb!

Fun hike with lots of interesting sandstone formations and an old corral along the way. The slot canyon is about average, not very deep and no wild twists/turns or coloration, but it was fun and worth the hike. I still took a bunch of pics! The hike is almost all flat, probably 80% sand and there are few options for shade outside of the slot itself. There are no real obstacles inside the slot until you’re almost to the top of the upper portion, which requires gear or above-average crack climbing skills to continue. There are also at least three spots where the correct trail option is ambiguous, so using the downloadable maps option definitely made things easier. This wouldn’t be my first recommendation around Escalante (or even third) but if you like to hike slots, this is definitely worth the time/effort.

Slots were great!

The road to get to this trail is terrible.. super bumpy. Once you get there it’s very pretty, we didn’t stay long or hike the whole trail because there are no real trail markers, you can just walk wherever you want. Still beautiful though

Gorgeous hike through some slots. Stream through most of it which was great to keep my dog cool. Road to trailhead is primarily dirt and bumpy in spots.

I thought the bigger waterfall would be at the end of the trail. I was a bit disappointed when I realized that the mini waterfall I saw at the beginning of the trail was the only waterfall I would see during the trail. It was fairly easy. Sandy, but it wasn’t as bad as the lower calf creek trail. Pretty family friendly trail.

Great scenery for a short hike. Trail is out in several places. Took my dog and kids should be okay on it.

Short trail with some nice views. Round trip 45 minutes with spending about 15 minutes at the end.

A decent amount of sand as mentioned by many, but a pretty epic and flat hike nonetheless. My friend and I only saw three other people on the trail and two of them said that the trailhead for Zebra Slot Canyon just a few miles down the road was a lot more crowded. Both the main and spur Big Horn Slot Canyons were dry and fun.

Great trail for kids and dogs. Walked 2 miles in and it was fairly level. Water was at most,2-4in deep.

The historical significance alone is worth the time. Be sure to hop around on the rocks beyond. We ran around until night time and watched a massive moon take over the sky!
