5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Went with family. Great hike. Beautiful canyon with lots of petroglyphs to see.
Better if you go with the ranger-led hike so you can get closer to the Great Gallery
It is moderately strenous.

“Hard to get to - BUT WORTH IT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

Horseshoe Canyon and the Great Gallery, was an experience I'll never forget!

Have a vehicle with high clearance, and 4 wheel drive, because there is 30 miles of sandy roads that you can't navigate easily or go faster than 20 miles and hour if you're in a regular rental.

Also, before you've started out on this adventure, you better know if you are in good enough shape to walk/hike 7 miles to the Great Gallery. It's easy going down, but VERY EXHAUSTING coming back up & out of the canyon.

Once you've decided if you can do it - IT IS SO WORTH IT! The Great Gallery and all the other drawings are something to behold! Enchanting! Thought provoking and Amazing!

“The Great Gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2010

A 6.5 mile round trip starts with a canyon wall descent = .9 mi and 600 feet, followed by a beautiful walk up a winding canyon. Three galleries of pictographs of varying types and ages. The Great Gallery is the final stop at 3.2 miles. Amazing figures approx 3000-5000 years old.
We went in October when the weather was perfect and the trees were golden.
Camping at the trailhead.
