The Hoo Doos are so strange looking! It is really cool to see what nature has made. Never seen anything like it. I liked learning what the word means as well. Very interesting.

This is a unique opportunity to see yet another Canadian wonder. The badlands are any unique area in Canada. They are on the south dinosaur trail.

Just on the side of the road, so easy to visit! Shocking to see how erosion affects land. Very interesting and worth the trip!

A bit underwhelmed by the hoodoos based off of some reviews I'd received from friends. The hoodoos themselves are an interesting geolgical feature, and it's hard to say no to free. There has been some great work done installing stairs and barriers to minimize future damage to the site. Highlight was being able to scale the hills behind the hoodoos.... More

Not far outside of Drumheller (20-25 minutes) is this hoodoo site. These curious and interesting formations are definitely worth a visit --- there are very sturdy, metal staircases that take you up to them where you can take plenty of pictures and read very concise and information signs about the hoodoos.

We didn't originally plan to visit the hoodoos, but certainly glad we did. The rock formations are very neat. Would have stayed longer if it wasn't raining. Also, it is free of charge.

Its not something to rant and rave over but it is beautiful, lots of picture opps! I would suggest stopping even if it is only for a few minutes and take a look around. Nice they have bathrooms and a parking spot there too!

While we were hoping for more, this was still a beautiful place. As with many places of natural beauty, we are in danger of losing these because of the actions of a few or Mother Nature herself. Take the time if you can to see how the land can shape itself. You won't be disappointed.
