Definitely one of the premier day hikes (closed to camping) in Canyonlands National Park, especially for hikers interested in ancient rock art. Although officially a “detached unit” of Canyonlands National Park, the Horseshoe Canyon area could be better described as a little hidden jewel lost in the desert. When you’re driving toward it, you can’t see it ahead and you might start to wonder if it’s really out there. Then, suddenly, it drops out of the desert right in front of you.
