I was recommended to visit this place by the visitor center in Kanab. I saw this after playing in wire pass, it was a nice way to end the day. Parking is free. The hike is very short and easy to follow up to the red "Toadstools". After that, the markers seem to disappear. But if you go left hen... More

It's like going to the moon - ok, a wee exaggeration - but wow! what interesting formations - so glad we stopped for a picnic at Paria Station, where the word 'toadstool' immediately gripped & intrigued me in the ranger's office - we simply had to go ! It's an easy walk and you'll be rewarded with these beautiful, strange... More

How many times have I passed this and not known the gem existed? Yes, unless you are handicapped, this is an awesome hike for all ages at all seasons. The paths are well marked and after a short easy hike you can go explore all you wish and you can even climb up on some hoodoos that are huge. This... More

We drove to here from Page, Arizona. You cross the dam and go about 20 miles. Big enough parking lot on the right side of highway. It's a relatively easy trail. The trail winds and curves a lot and people have made "shortcuts" to avoid those curves. About halfway in the trail, it seems like the normal trail has collapsed... More

Found this trail on the drive from Zion to Page. It is a very friendly and easy to navigate hike. The views are pretty impressive and the terrain is unique.

There is a small parking lot near mile marker 20 on 89 that marks the start of the trail. The hike there can be a little hard to follow, but if you follow the wash, you'll find it no problem. There is one spot where you have to walk up a hill, but you'll be able to see the path.... More

Family of four. Two girls 13 and 10. Loved lower antelope, but this was disappointing. Poorly marked trail. Got lost a couple of times, which was disconcerting with younger kids. Rocks were cool, but not what we expected.

I love taking people to The Toadstools - not just because of the great hoodoos in the area, but because the more time you spend wandering as far as you can get in every direction, the more beautiful little places you discover. I think a lot of people just hike straight back to the main hoodoos and then turn around,... More
