Goblin Valley State Park most definitely is one of the strangest places on earth. This entire region of Utah boasts many natural terrains that compare to science fiction movie landscapes, but most are not easy to access. Rough dirt roads and challenging 4x4 trails are a way of life in the Moab and San Raphael regions, so a driver of a regular passenger car will have to be careful when choosing destinations. Fortunately there are paved roads all the way to Goblin Valley, but the 4x4 crowd will be happy to know that there is an overland 4x4 trail that enables arriving in grand style!
There are just as many funny looking goblins as there are scary ones, so the paranormal intimidation factor does not last long when exploring Goblin Valley. The sights and lack of loud sounds in this valley make it very easy to completely leave the mundane daily existence far behind. Goblin Valley offers an escape from reality like no other place in the entire west, so be sure to chalk this destination high on the list!

*This website will be going through renovations soon. Separate destination articles will be combined after the videos replace the outdated photo gallery system. As many readers know, most of the writing was done on the fly while camping, so many articles read like a rough draft. The articles will be cleaned up and edited. Many of the old photos were straight out of the camera due camping limitations as well, so you will finally see full living color images, just like in the new videos. Another goal is to make navigating the index pages easier and condensing the articles will help. This website will continue into the future and your patience is greatly appreciated!
