The Hiking Trail Hiding In Utah That Will Transport You To Another World

Utah has many other-worldly spots, and Goblin Valley State Park often tops the list. The hoodoos and weird rock formations, surrounded by the stark, desert environment, can easily convince you that you’re no longer in Utah, but rather on the surface of Mars. In fact, this place looks so strange, that sci-fi movies such as Galaxy Quest have been filmed here.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
