Short trail, beautiful at dusk

1.6 miles round trip hike - we were the only ones at dusk and got to see a beautiful sunset in the mountains. The formations are interesting, not too many, but it is worth it.

In planning for a month-long roadtrip to the canyon areas of utah, I looked far and wide for unique experiences from different sources to include on our itinerary. When I came upon information on these "Toadstool Hoodoos", I thought we'd check them out. They were in fact amazing! We stopped in late afternoon in mid August thinking we'd catch the... More

Close to highway 89, easy walk, not to miss. I've travelled extensively and my favorite State is Utah. This area is one of the many that is a privilege to experience.

We had bad weather in Page and so our booked for-wheel-tour to White Pocket was cancelled. There was no rain in the afternoon and we decided to visit the Hoodos. The parking area is beside the Highway west of Big Water. The way was a little bit muddy, but this wasn’t a big problem. We reached the Hoodos and were... More

The walk to the toadstools is about one mile and is relatively easy. There are signs marking the way but you think, how much longer. Be sure to take water as even in October it was warm and dry. Seeing the Hoodos for the first time is amazing, even geologists think the rock are really cool. This is a fantasy... More

Step out of your car, walk along Wahweap Creek four miles or so, watch for the other-worldly toadstools in several families, niched in the snow-white flow-stone of the west wall.

This is another little gem in southern Utah. My 10 year old son and his buddy loved it because it was an easy hike through a pretty little desert wash to a whole series of hidey holes and toadstool formations. Even though it was very windy on the highway, it wasn't too bad in the canyon. There are many interesting... More

I'd spent the day in Page and was headed to Kanab. This was a nice hike to see some interesting formations. The trail was pretty well marked, you can also follow the stream bed. I missed the exit back to the parking lot on the way back, so probably should have paid attention on the way out. There is a... More

A variety of colors and formations. The marked path took us through dry river beds and nice vistas. Sunset was a great time to be there with long shadows and light conditions.

Met a local photographer in Page and we headed out after the fireworks on July 4th, 2016. Once we arrived we hiked/walked up the dry river bed to the formations. On this trip it was not the formations that we were after but a view of the Milky Way with the hoodoos in the foreground. After we arrived we turned... More
