Strange but True

It was such an interesting experience to actually see the Hoodoos in person. I had seen pictures many times. Such strange formations.

Extraordinary. A 'must see' if you're in the area. Unlike anything else I've seen so far on my world wide travels. Imagine big stone mushrooms.

We went in the too hot part of the day - it was busy and hot. But there was an ice cream truck! they are not as big as they appear on line, but still wonderful to see. My 8 and 9 year olds loved climbing to the top of the hills - parents bring an extra set of shorts... More

Looks small from the parking lot but when you go closer they're actually big. Very interesting formation. We were here at 730am on a weekday and no one was here so would highly recommend going early so you can take pictures. I can see the place being crowded. Kids really enjoyed this place. Best of all - its FREE

You won't see anything like this anywhere else! Go off the beaten path a bit and explore on your own - you won't be disappointed. But please - don't vandalize the hoodoos. I was annoyed to see that people had scratched their names into the rock. Really? Why?!? Knock it off.

Fun visit with kids! Neat geological gem. Fun for young kids and older kits. Young kids can walk around the Hoodoos (but not pass the fenced areas!) and pose in different areas; whereas older kids and adults can traverse up higher up trails. My son and husband traveled up to the top ridge off the main trail. This was challenging... More

We are so glad that we took the advice of many travelers by visiting the Hoodoos after leaving Tyrrell Museum. It's about a 15 minute drive from Tyrrell and well worth the time - especially if you have kids. As many travelers noted, there are metal stairs that allow you to get up to take some nice shots. You are... More

A must see, just because it really shows the amazing georgraphy of the area. A nice trail with information posted about the hoodoos, and then a chance to climb around - great fun for kids of all ages - just remember that the climb down is a bit more tricky than the climb up! Can get quite busy, so consider... More

We haven't been to the hoodoos in a few years so it was nice to see how they have updated the area. There is a nice big parking lot for cars and trailers. It can be a short visit or a longer one if you want to go hiking. I'm so glad they have taken steps to protect the hoodoos... More

There isn't alot of hoodoos and they are small but still pretty neat to see. Our 2 and 4 year old enjoyed it.
