The toadstools are a great way to experience erosion grating ‘natural art’ in the sandstone layers. The toadstools are along the rim of the Vermillion Cliffs just north of highway 89 and are easily accessible, at least some of them are. We didn’t drive out to the one off Cottonwood Canyon Rd, since it had rained the day before and... More

We hadn't planned to stop here until our Airbnb host mentioned it to us. We were so glad we listened to her. It is a short but fun hike in to see the hoodoos. We both thought this was a very amazing place. One of those places you can't seem to stop taking pictures of. Would have spent more time... More

.8 miles off the highway along a well marked trail. Nice area and nice short trip in and out in 2 hours. Not a lot of features but very nice photo opportunities and good side trip from Kanab or Page. Parking trailhead nicely marked. NOT an all day trip....

this is a great hike!! it is about a 2 mile hike round trip. It mostly follows an old river bed but has some climbing in areas. We did this with my tough 81 year old father. He used a walker for most of it and then hiking sticks where he could take the walker. He loved it!! It wasn't... More

Located in the Grand Staircase area of southern Utah, the Toadstools are an interesting set of rock formations set in from Highway 89 near mile marker 19. There is a dirt parking lot and the trailhead is marked, but it is easy to miss if you’re speeding by. You can get directions to the trailhead from one of the Visitor... More

This is a fairly easy 1 mile hike to some very interesting rock formations. There are the toadstools themselves plus other rock formations nearby. Well worth a look.

The hike itself feels otherwordly, but its not until you reach something of a summit that you start to see the hoodoo features and toadstools. For us it was time to get out and stretch from being in the car. But note it can be tough depending on recent rains and rock slides. Not the easy hike some described

A nice easy walk to see this site, probably around 1 mile round trip. Easy to find with a road sign and parking lot right off Rt 89 near the Paria Ranger station. Definitely worth the walk!

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.
