good for short visit, great pictures

We visited on our way back from Tyrell museum. We spent about an hour which is about what you need. Small area, but good hoodoos and picture spot.

The hoodoos were really neat to see, but once you're there it's a small area so I would suggest checking out other local attractions as well. We wandered up around and took some great pictures, got up close and walked around before moving on to the local coal mine, suspension bridge and giant dinosaur. Definitely worth a stop!!

If you're in the area then it's worth a quick stop but there's not that much to see. There's a quick walk up and around some formations. Interesting to see.

We drove down from Drumheller just to see them and were expecting something commensurate with the dramatic scenery in the river valley. When we arrived, though, we found the hoodoos remaining were much smaller than expected and, while interesting, were really not very imoressive. Old photos at the site show it before the modern-age onslaught of tourists, and a comparison... More

Magnificent. One of the best days of our trip. Very beautiful and unique. A must see. We climbed to the top. A little slippery coming down (dry sand). But worth it.

No matter how old my kids get, this is a must-do whenever we're in the Drumheller area. To climb and explore, it's a blast!!

The hoodoos are really something to see. It is amazing to see what was left after the ice age. They are protected now so visitors can see the formations and the type of rock for years to come. There are good walkways so you can get a good look. I wish they could have been protected years ago so the... More

They look amazing in the pictures, but they are somewhat petite after years of erosion. IF you have a 4x4 keep driving past these and a little further into the badlands, amazing rock formations and a fun little drive.

Always enjoy going here it is a chance to see up close the Hoodoos. I like that you can go and explore and the small bits of history you learn. We have not been here for about two years and right away you noticed how they are wearing away. Great picture taking they even have places on the rails to... More

Having grown up in Alberta, I had never been and wanted to check them out.. They are beautiful - small but quite amazing when you think that they are completely sculpted by mother nature. There are a few good ones that are well protected, and as others have noted the paths are well designed to admire and take in their... More
