With some advanced planning, you can find yourself camping in comfort at the Goblin Valley State Park just a few miles from the canyon.
However, approximately 2 miles before reaching the trailhead, you will begin to see dirt roads branch off of Wild Horse Road. For a free and secluded night of camping, find your way along one of these rough "roads" to find a flat tent area with a fire pit that suits your needs.
Be advised that 4WD or AWD is recommended to reach these areas.
The Little Wild Horse Canyon Trail is a 4.1-mile long, "out and back", family friendly hike. The hike can, however, be extended to form an 8-mile loop by hooking into the Bell Canyon Trail.
