I only made it through a portion of the little horse slot before needing to turn around due to time of day. I so wish I could have made it through the whole hike. It's in my list of hikes to do again in the near future!!!

took little wild horse up until it opens up, came back. the lower part is fun, but going up one and down the other seems like a waste when it's mainly the lower part of horse that's great, so I just did that out and back

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
