It is also part of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. President Bill Clinton designated the area as a national monument in 1996.

Stopped here between Kanab and Page, as due to rain we couldn't do any of the longer hikes we had planned. We initially missed the turning - keep your eyes peeled! It was very quiet when went, an easy hike but take water. The toadstool hoodoos were really interesting, great formations. Worth stopping off for.

These are cool, but unless you're some kind of geological fanatic, I would not go out of my way to see these. We stopped on our way from Page to Zion. It was blazing hot out and no shade. I guess for all the hub bub, I was expecting something really fantastic. If you're in this area, you're seeing (hopefully)... More

The turn in for this hike is near mile marker 19 and you might miss it if you are coming from the west as it is just past a ridge. This is a nice 1-hr hike back along a sandy stream bed until you enter an area contrasted in red rock and whitish rock. The hoodoo's were interesting, including one... More

Very easy hike. Nice place to take pictures. Very happy we did it. It takes about 1h15 to walk and enjoy the scenery. There is a parking on the side of the road (right side coming from Page) between miles 19 and 20, you can not miss it.

We hiked this on 7/2. The trail head and parking are off Rte 89 and are marked. You can get a map of the hike and attractions in the area at any of the BLM offices. The hike, with some wandering around at the toad stools, is about 2 mi. RT. You don't really see the formations until you are... More

It was a hot day, so we chose to do a shorter hike. I believe it was about 1.6 miles roundtrip. Take water, as it is very hot in the summer! It is right off the highway, so not many people know about it. One guy was leaving when we arrived, but that was it. It was great to have... More

Short, flat one mile hike in and out to the Hoo Doos is well worth the effort at either sunrise or sunset for good photos.

Very cool place. The scenery is very nice. Access is right off the side of the highway. There is a small, dirt parking lot where the trailhead begins. It's an easy hike, with very little incline. The trail meanders along side a small stream. The end of the trail opens up into a general area where the toadstools are. Be... More

This is about a 1 mile hike each way, some of it a little difficult with scrambling on rocks and sand, but not too tough, and well worth it. The toadstool formations are so interesting and great for photography.
