Tom’s Experience hiking the Entrada Canyon Trail:
The Entrada Canyon Trail is located in Goblin Valley State Park.
The Estrada Canyon Trail is about 2.6 miles round trip from the Observation Point Parking Lot to the campgrounds and back.
If you prefer you could hike this trail, and then link up with the Curtis Bench Trail and make a loop hike of it ending in the Valley of Goblins.
This trail runs right near the road but you are never able to see the cars only occasionally hear them drive by.
The trail follows a narrow wash that is neat and almost like a slot canyon. There are a few balanced rocks along the way but the trail twists and turns constantly.
When hiking in Entrada Canyon it literally feels like you are hiking on a different planet. Dogs are allowed in Goblin Valley but must remain on leash.
Trail Info: Goblin Valley is located south of I-70 about 25 miles on Highway 24 and is about 25 miles north of Hanksville, the closest city. There are many signs that point the way and it shouldn’t be too difficult to find. There is a $10 a day entrance fee to enter the park. There are some campsites and yurts available for a fee but in order to get one you need to make a reservation months in advance during the peak seasons. There are outhouses at the main parking area, observation point. Also maps are handed out at the fee booth showing directions for all hikes and camp spots.
