Little Bookcliffs encompasses the cliffs and canyons of the east end of the Bookcliffs. Thousand-foot canyon walls rise from the entrance to Main Canyon at its confluence with the Colorado River, and portions of the 2,000-foot vertical face of the Bookcliffs, visible from throughout the Grand Valley, are incorporated into the area. The sheer enormity of these unscalable walls, combined with the views from the mesas above them, provide incomparable wilderness values. The area includes two-thirds of the Little Bookcliffs Wild Horse Range, one of a few designated Wild Horse Ranges in America, and the only one in the Colorado Plateau Province. More than 100 wild horses roam the area, providing unique opportunities for observing and photographing them while hiking, backpacking, or horseback riding.
