Great hike, one of our favorites in Utah. We made it about a 3rd the way through. We had to wade through the freezing cold water too. Bring a small towel to wipe your feet after. Our kids did great, ages 6 - 10.

Loved this hike. Went up Little Wildhorse Canyon and down Bell Canyon. Had to wade through calf-deep water for about a 100-foot stretch of Little Wildhorse Canyon.

Beautiful day to hike. We were only going to go through Little Wild Horse and return, but took the entire loop. So glad we did. Thigh deep water in Little Wild Horse for about 50 yards. Turned back lots of hikers so we had a lot of the trail to ourselves.

We made it quite a ways up Little Wildhorse, but had to turn back - water was about 3+ feet deep, and impossible to get around. Too cold to swim through. Amazing slot though... Incredible.
