This is a great spot to explore and photograph....hoodoos, beautifully eroded soil, and striking red and white color contrasts. If you walk to the left when reaching the hoodoo area, you will come to a hill with lots of boulders...kind of a small barrier. Continue over/through this and there are more hoodoos and a great view down into a valley... More

This place deserves more attention. I drove by it twice without ever noticing it. There's a tiny sign that says it's there, but at 70 mphs, it looks like a brown stain on the space-time continuum. I learned about it from someone that told me. It's about a 20 minute hike from to parking lot to the hoodoos, an excellent... More

I wanted a place that I could take my dog to and the blm suggested this hike. It is an easy hike and takes you to some otherworldly rock formations.

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.
