Blake did some research on our fall break trip and found the best little rappel in Goblin Valley State Park. To get to the rappel, you head down the 40 stairs at the parking lot and into the goblins. There is a white dome that serves as your guide; walk toward the dome until you reach the base of it. There is a small wash that you will walk up until you reach the top of some hoodoos. There is a little scrambling to the webbing; looking down into the chamber is a little intimidating because you can’t see the bottom. The rappel is about 90 feet! Once in the Chamber of the Basilisk, it’s fun to look around and enjoy the amazing cave. This has become a popular trail and the rangers can give more information and better directions on a map there.
We actually ended up going back with some friends over Halloween weekend and did this rappel in the dark. It was a fun Halloween activity and very spoooooky! We loved the Chamber of the Basilisk and will definitely be returning.
