We like hoodoos! We had to have a looooong walk toward other location and have been very pleasantly surprised that Toadstool Hoodoos are about 20 minutes comfortable walk from the parking lot near the mile 19 post on Hwy 89. There are no toilets nor...More

n excellent hike and exploration area for those who cannot hike far. A simple slow walk which lies about a half mile off Route 89 to an open area of rock formations that will blow your mind. Bring water or maybe wine and cheese and...More

This was exactly what I was looking for - an easy hike with some nice unique scenery not too far from Page. I had run the half marathon in the morning, so my feet and ankles weren't up to anything more intense than this hike....More

This trail is part of Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. The parking lot for the trailhead is off of Highway 89 between mile markers 19 and 20 (but much closer to 19, and on the left if you’re heading towards Page). The trail is mostly...More

This place is just amazing. It is only about an hour drive from Page so if you are in this area you should put this on your list. The hike is an easy less than 1 mile hike until you reach the first hoodoo. Once...More

Plan for about 1.5 hours or more if you wish to continue the hike. It took my husband and I about 1/2 hour to walk out to the first toadstool (.6 mile walk). It was a great quick stop. There is little shade. Do keep...More

I was not very impressed by the Toadstool Hoodoos. Unless we were in the wrong place (and I don't think we were), there weren't that many to see (2 red & 1 white). They must have eroded over the years. As the walk was only...More

Utah geology is fascinating!!! The toadstools are another example of this amazing geology! When you arrive at your first toadstool, there are some more past it. As you arrive at that first toadstool look over to your left and follow the worn paths, there are...More

0.8 miles one-way on a well-marked trail. If you lose the trail, follow the dry river bed. It'll get you there with just a few extra steps. Went in June. Was 103* and windy so we took lots of water and needed it. It's an...More

Take your time to explore this very interesting area. The hike from the parking area is quite short and easy. If you feel you've seen everything based on the initial grouping of red hoodoos, you're in for a surprise. Continue both to the right and...More
