Hiking Little Wild Horse Canyon & Bell Canyon Loop

Details

Added by Aaron Roth

Distance: 8.5 miles round trip. Elevation gain: 700 ft. Duration: 5 hours. Beautiful and easily accessible slot canyons.

The Little Wild Horse Canyon/Bell Canyon loop hike is a classic southern Utah experience. Little Wild Horse Canyon is the better of the two canyons, so if you can only do part of the hike do Little Wild Horse. If you're doing a loop of both, save the best for last and go up Bell Canyon and down Little Wild Horse. It is an easy hike with no major obstacles.

There is also plenty of camping nearby and bathrooms at the trailhead with plenty of parking. Others who have hiked this say they have never seen water above knee level when it is raining, but I would be cautious and check the weather before making the trip.

Amazing

If you haven't been, you must go!

super pretty but busy

Little Wild Horse Canyon is a really fun, simple slot canyon. I went in the middle of April, and there was actually quite a bit of water in some spots of the slots. My brother is 6 ft tall and fell into almost his shoulders. For the most part it was about knee high for a 6ft tall person, but be cautious as you're walking through. Overall, it's a fun hike with lots of people. Be sure to bring plenty of water!
