The damage from over the years is clear and it breaks my heart. Such a beautiful thing to see and over the years there has been so much damage from lack of respect of the area. I was so sad to see the damage done.

This was a port of call as we were doing the Dinosaur Trail. These rock formations are really odd looking like giant mushrooms. The weather was superb the day of our visit so we spent quite a while walking and climbing around. There are ramps...More

So interesting to see and get close to these iconic rock formations. They are being preserved, but you can still get pretty up close and personal.

A MUST to do when in Calgary as we did. Fascinating just to drive around this unusual terrain and see "nature's architecture".

Very interesting formation, glad I took the time to go visit. Expect them to be small-ish though ;) that way you won't be disappointed by size

Maybe improved is not the correct word. They have constructed a corrugated walkway around the most critical Hoodoos for protection. Even so some dummies still go into the restricted area evidenced by the foot prints. The is still plenty of real estate you can walk...More

There are camp grounds nearby. Fire bans occur depending on the dryness of the area.

The Hoodoos are 16 kilometres SE of Drumheller. Take Highways 56, then 10 to get there in about 15 minutes. There is some parking and no charge to see them. Search for Hoodoos Trail on Google Maps.
