we love this spot. Easy enough for the littles to come and enjoy too. It's a favorite of ours. We go over and over.

the trail was a little hard to follow in spots you have to climb over a few rocks to get to the inner portion where there was a round bench. there are picnic tables by the parking area would be a great spot for a picnic on a pretty day.

This would be a great place for young children. The trail is a little hard to follow in places but was overall a fun day. Very beautiful. I spent about an hour exploring.

This is super amazing formation. Rocks that mark the trail is all over In places. Markers for different formations are removed or hard to spot.

This canyon is short but absolutely stunning! It's a remote spot but worth the trek to get out there. Some good info on here about camping and other things like the weather. https://utahadventureguides.com/fantasy-canyon/

It’s really irritating to see people give this hike 3 stars for the sole reason that it is far away and short! This forum is meant to describe the hike. This hike is incredible and people commenting about the drive should get zero credence as a hiker. Go exercise in Disney world and save us the time of reading your nonsensical reviews that mean nothing.

It’s a long way out of the way for a really small hike. But the rock formations are super cool and the kids spent an hour climbing all over the rocks.

This place was absolutely amazing! One of the reasons we went to Vernal in the first place. Took us about an hour to get there from Vernal but totally worth it. The sandstone structures that were created completely by nature were absolutely breathtaking. There are markers to help you find specific formations that have been named, but it looked like some of them had been broken. Not sure if this was from vandalism or natural causes. There was a restroom out there, but I don't know if it's open all the time or just in the summer. It was open when we went. I would definitely recommend this hike to anyone who doesn't mind the drive. Worth it!

A mini sized version of Goblin Valley. Fun place to see but kind of a drive. We spent less than an hour here. I bet this place would be incredible during a sunset.
