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

Easy hike, well marked trail....fun little formations at the end. A nice place to let the kids out and run if they have been cooped up in the car too long. In August or summer months hike early as it was warm when we got back. Always pack a little water.

This is a great, little hike to see hoodoos. We walked up the dry river bed. There is not shade and no water. Be prepared.

Short hike to another planet....Magical place with many spirits around... There are not to many places you can see these types of formations with such a short hike....

This is a great, short hike to see some super cool, funky hoodoos. We had two teens with us. I think this would be a great hike for a family with younger kids, also. Just heed the warnings that there is NO shade and you've got to bring water. We visited on June 3rd and it was super hot. Flat... More

The parking lot is between mile marker 19&20. The hike is about 1/2 mile until you see the main hoodoo, hike up a small hill next to this iconic hoodoo to reach the other red hoodoos. If the sun is too much, there are arches in the walls of the wall next to these hoodoos, these arches provide cover from... More
