Horseshoe Canyon Ranger-Led HIke

Join a ranger for a guided hike into Horseshoe Canyon. Hikes will be led every week on Saturday and Sunday at 9 am, from March 23, 2019 to May 26, 2019 (hikes may be cancelled due to flash flooding or thunderstorm activity).

Meet the ranger by the bulletin board at the west side trailhead of Horseshoe Canyon at 9 am. You do not need a reservation. Hikes with the ranger last about 4 hours depending on the size of the group. At the end of the hike, you will hike out of the canyon on your own. This can take approximately 2 hours.

This is a strenuous hike covering 7 miles, part of this in deep sand, and includes a steep ascent of 650 feet elevation in 1 mile to exit the canyon.

You should be prepared with plenty of water, lunch and snacks, any medications you may need, sun protection, clothing appropriate for the weather, and good hiking shoes.

The road to Horseshoe Canyon is normally a two-wheel-drive road. However, this can change quickly due to storms (rain or snow) and sand dunes blowing across the road. Call ahead for the latest road conditions if you are not driving a four-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive vehicle. Call the Hans Flat Ranger Station at 435-259-2652 between 8 am and 4:30 pm.
Directions and more information about Horseshoe Canyon are available at the Canyonlands National Park website.
