Out in the Badlands of Alberta. Worth the 15 minute drive from the Royal Tyrell Museum. Just walk up and observe this geological oddity.

Found Drumheller a great family day! Hoodoos was a nice hike . Suspension bridge was fun and a small hike after, then finished off at the splash park/fountain.

This outdoor experience is superb. The hoodoos have been in existence for a long time. In this day and age they have had to preserve them with a fence. They have not closed off the entire area so the kids are still allowed to climb here as well as the adults. This site makes for wonderful pictures. It is advisable... More

This place was beautiful. The children were able to climb the hills and search for caves. Definitely worth the visit. It's amazing how these were carved out by the water.

Neat geological sight. There are not a lot of actual hoodoos, but it's fun to climb around the surrounding landscape (don't climb the hoodoos, though! lol) A lot of good photo opportunities.

Felt like we were on another planet with the unusual columns of stone and geological features. Many other visitors as well.

Very cool kids were able to climb in scenic area. We spent maybe 30 minutes here took some great pictures and then continued along. There are washrooms close by.

I was in Drumheller about 13 years ago, when the hoodoos were a lot easier to see and far more abundant. I was saddened to see that they are pretty much non-existent now. There was a small area still left where you can see the impressive ones, but for the most part, the hoodoos are quickly disappearing. If this is... More

It was so interesting. Loved being able to climb around that, but having said that, some kids (7-9 year olds) were trying it climb to the top, around the hoodoos. Bring good shoes so you can keep up with them!!!

It's funny what a little water, wind and a lot of time can do. This is where you want to go to see the slow passage of time. Each of these pillars takes years to construct and their unique nature is absolutely impressive. Take a walk down the area and ponder the marvels of nature that they are.
