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

There are several locations along the Wahweap Creek north and slightly west of Big Water Utah (its actually a wash most of the year). This is where you can find these strange and amazing gypsum formations. The coordinates where my attached pictures are taken from are 37.162 N, 111.710 W. Start at Hwy 89 at the Cottonwood Canyon Road (37.105N,... More

I visited the Rimrock Toadstool Hoodoos on October 7, 2013. The hike itself is quite easy on relatively flat terrain with a few minor rises here and there. The roundtrip hike is roughly 1.6 miles. The multi-colored hills along the trail are very beautiful with shades of brown, tan and cream layered sedimentary rock. The hoodoos are quite beautiful and... More

Small State Park the interesting rock formations. Walking the trill is well with the time. Not a difficult hike.

A relatively short hike that is great for kids who enjoy exploring. We went on this as opposed to the much longer white hoodoos hike. The landscape is pretty cool, and though you don't want to disturb some of the formations, there is still plenty to climb up, hide behind, and explore. Recommend going on a cloudy day or in... More

we were the only hikers on this trail in May. The privacy and the color of the rocks against the blue sky made for lots of memorable photos.

This is not the most scenic hike in the vast Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument in southern Utah, but it is one of the easiest and is quite rewarding. The trailhead is right off of US 89 just east of the Paria Contact Station run by the Bureau of Land Management, or about 37 miles east of Kanab, UT.... More

Beautiful natural rock formations on a short hike; very great to see. Please do read specific details and directions ahead of time as most of the area's magnificent scenery is not well-marked with signage while you are whizzing by on the highway.
