It is pretty neat to go check out! strange the way the dirt formed the way it did. It had rained that day so it was very slippery so be VERY careful if you go here when it rains.

A much improved site since our last visit. It now has a path to follow, stairs which helps those less ambulatory and great signage explaining the unique erosion going on in this area.

Only a short 25 minute drive from Drunheller. Well worth the visit. You can see hoodoos all around the area, but few are this well formed and that close together. There is a nice walkway with camera stands. It was pretty quiet (weekday) since it doesn't seem like many know about this place. Note: It's on an unnamed road. The... More

I enjoyed the sights until I saw parents watching their children climb over the barriers and playing in the area that was clearly supposed to be protected from such vandals. What is wrong with some people?!

The hoodoos have had a walkway built around them to protect them which has taken something away from them. We spent 10minutes there having spent time and horseshoe and horse thief canyons. A nice stop on a journey but not worth travelling out of the way for.

Easy access from Hwy 10. Sandstone pillars resting on a thick base of shale, capped by a large stone. Wind and the elements have created these pillars over hundreds, thousands of years. Drive around the corner and hike into a canyon to get a continuing view of all the layers of rock, sandstone, coal, etc.

I remembered them being much bigger and having more of them when I was little so it was a little disappointing when there was basically 5 hoodoos left. It's quite sad but they are very unique and I recommend it if you haven't seen them before.

Interesting structures. Fun to hike and climb. Kids and adults love them. There are interpretive signs to explain how the wind carved these magnificent structures.
