Fun in the Hoodoos

A great way to spend an hour or two with any age. We had young children who climbed and had a great time. It is free

Having visited the Hoodoos many times in the 1980s, I was disappointed that the public-access area is MUCH smaller than before. My sons (21 and 16) had never been before, so they thought it was absolutely wonderful. They enjoyed hiking the hills so much that they ranked the Hoodoos above Lake Louise and the Skywalk!

They seem to appear out of nowhere as on the drive there it's no apparent what you are getting ready to see. I agree with the one traveller who noticed or thought they may shrinking..they don't look as big as I remember when I visited as a teenager.. an awesome experience- definetly worth the drive!

Well, they're not as big as they look in many pictures so make sure you don't expect 100 foot pillars or anything. They are worth a stop as they are 10 minutes outside of town and there is a nice little walk around the area. You can also climb the (somewhat treacherous) hills right next to the Hoodoos and get...

Although fewer actual hoodoos than I thought there would be, this was a great stop to see some fascinating geological formations. Beautiful shapes and colours carved into the stone. You're able to climb the rocks against the mountain and get a great view of the hoodoo area.

Our family (6 adults, 5 small children) visited the hoodoos today July 26. They were pretty cool. We walked and hiked up as far as we could go with the kids and it was a nice view. It's a short visit though as there isn't much there. The bathrooms were DISGUSTING. The smell of urine and crap were so bad... More

This is developed (walkways and stairways) place to see hoodoos (sandstone pillars) close up. It was a bit crowded with other tourist when we visited, but I could still get photos with people in them. The washrooms sure needed emptying and cleaning.

These rock and sand formations were so cool! They were definitely something worth going to see! It is amazing how simply beautiful nature can be!

You can't beat seeing these hoodoos in the middle of Alberta. We took some great pictures and had a great hike. Very hot in August, but just bring your hat and water and you'll be fine. Have fun!

They were really cool looking. We kept looking around because we thought that we could find bigger Hoodoos. No, just that one place according to this lady at the fossil store.
