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.
Great moderate hike went in mid march weather was just right for the walk. Vary popular with Boy Scouts lots of traffic was the only downside
What type of shoes would you recommend for kids hiking through the water down thru Little Wildhorse Canyon this weekend?
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.
Great trail, thigh deep water in short section of wild horse. Bell was dry
ok so we came back to do this hike sans dogs. went up bell and down little wild horse. lwh is more interesting hike imo. some scrambling but worthwhile. bring water socks. we had to wade thru pools up to calf deep.
This place rules. Lot's of people, but the hike was impressive. BRING WATER!!
Can't wait to go back
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.
