Goblin ValleyGoblin Valley State Park is one of Utah’s most popular state parks, with a unique 3,654-acre landscape. Along with nearby Bryce Canyon, Goblin Valley State Park is a place where visitors can see some of the largest “hoodoos” in the world. These tall, Entrada Sandstone pillars have been eroded over millions of years to create an array of peculiar formations that scatter this desert valley. Visitors come to this section of the San Rafael Desert to explore the thousands of mushroom-shaped pillars resembling stone “goblins”, which give the park its name. Goblin Valley looks very different from the rest of Utah’s landscape, but is just as beautiful. Visitors can choose from a variety of fun things to do in the area, including camping, hiking, mountain biking, and disc golf. If you look closely, you may even come across ancient petroglyphs and pictographs left behind by the Fremont, Paiute and other Native American residents.
