The road getting there is very primitive. It is very dusty and dry, take water. It is a very long walk if you are walking. Viewing the wild horses is very interesting.

Best during the spring, more likely to see the wild horses. This hike is truly unique, dry, not difficult, there is one hill to climb at the beginning then you can continue on a fairly flat wash for a long while.

Beautiful countryside, horses can be hard to track down, but it's worth hiking or 4 wheeling to find them.

I didn't know what to do with the very last day of my holiday and stumbled onto Little Book Cliffs on TA. And I'm very glad I did. Just take exit 46 on the I-70 (Cameo) and drive past the plant onto a gravel road....More

We did see wild horses, and that was our goal, but we were not prepared to have to drive into the park so far. We probably did not research it enough, but it was an hour or more in and then another hour out. Make...More

We didn't see any horses but it is a good quiet place to go. Roads require 4 wheel drive. A fun place to go off-roading. .....
