Report: Although somewhat domesticated now, and for the area, overran, it is still a wonderful place to take the kids. Nearby Little Wild Horse Canyon, a slot canyon, is a great side trip. The kids will play for hours-all day as there is not only a lot of 'goblins' but thousands of hiding places. Good for adults too!

Report: There really wasn't any "tough" parts of the hike. The hiking in Goblin Valley was pretty basic, you could hike far back into and up into the rocks if you wanted, which was very awesome!!! Great place to take pictures and just relax and enjoy the beauty of nature as there is TONS of beauty to see here!!!
