    Paria Rimrocks Toadstool Hoodoos
    We were driving to Page Arizona from Bryce Canyon. we stopped at Kanab and were told about the Paria Rimrocks Toadstool Hoodoos. Had we not been told we would have driven by as it is not well signposted. The area looks like a moonscape. The actual toadstools rock formation is a short walk from the road. From begnnining to end was no more than 30 minutes. The formations are very interstinga nd make a good photo opportunity. If one is driving along US Highway 89 it is worth stopping to see

    Nice flat hike to see something interesting
    Nice little hike on the road between Kanab and Page, easy to find and good parking at the trailhead. It took us about 20 mins to get to the Toadstools and we spent about 30mins exploring. Met a few people on the hike so not to busy but not deserted either.

    A great short hike to see beautiful rock formations!
    The trailhead for the Toadstool Hoodoos trail is off Highway 89, approximately 30 miles from Page (it's between Kanab and Page). Though marked, you could easily miss the trailhead as you are driving down the highway. Coming from Page, as you approach Mile Marker 19, slow down and watch for the sign on your right. Coordinates: 37.1025731,-111.8741036 The trail is a moderate 1.5m RT. It shouldn't take long, but because i take lots of photos, we spent a little over an hour here. The scenery is stunning, all around, and the toadstool hoodoos are a marvel to look at. Go through the hikers gate, sign the log, and start the trail up the wash. Once out of the wash, you'll see the main Toadstool Hoodoos in front of you. Past the red Toadstool are more patches of smaller ones. We enjoyed this trail, and do recommend it!

Located right off Highway 89. Decent sized parking lot plus you can park on the side of the road. There is also a Porta Potty at the entrance. Mostly flat and good for all abilities. We enjoyed the Toadstool hoodoos (there aren’t very many) and the almost “caves”. It was quite cool in the caves which was appreciated as it was hot and there is no shade. We went on a Friday in May around 10:30 AM. It wasn’t crowded.

Visited here on a weekday early afternoon. When I got there I was pretty much only one there but as I wad leaving a lot of people began to arrive. It was nice having the place to myself. The parking area has a few Porta Johns. The trail out to the hoodoos is well marked. For most of it you’re walking in like a wash. Although 99% of this area is out in direct sun there are 1 or 2 spots to catch some shade. Most of it is flat but there are some rockier incline spots you have to maneuver. The rock formations are limited (unlike say Bryce) but cool nonetheless. Awesome colors. It’s a bummer telephone poles cut through taking away from some of the scenery. Hike from parking lot to the Toadstool hoodoo isn’t far. Maybe 15-20 minutes out. Cool to explore the area beyond the Toadstool too. Bring your sunblock and water.

Loved this hike. Make sure to see the white toadstools as well as the red ones. The white ones are around the bend and there is a view of the valley too. The white ones are formed like a little stonehenge. Trail head right off the main road with a sign so easy to find.

I am so glad we decided to stop here and see the Toadstool Hoodoos on our way from Zion to Page. This place is incredible. It felt like we were on another planet. We saw 2 or 3 people over the course of an hour. The hike in is less than a mile and mostly flat. It is well worth the stop to see what Mother Nature has created and continues to evolve through wind and rain,

We did this short hike after doing Canyon X, so we were already a bit tired. This hike is short - roughly 0.8 miles each way, but don't be fooled! It's almost entirely on sand or rocks - so not as easy as I thought it would be. However, it was worth every step. The views and the colors and the landscape were wonderful. It was quite a windy day, so lots of blowing sand. We went on a 75 degree day, and even then it was hot and there is ZERO SHADE. On a hot day, go early, wear a hat and sunscreen and bring lots of water. Good shoes are a MUST. I saw people headed out in Tevas and they would not be appropriate. We both had on hiking shoes (Hoka Speedgoats) and they were perfect. This is an easy 25-30 minute drive from Page, AZ. There's only a portable toilet, and no amenities at this trail head.

A short hike (~1 mile) will get you to the first of the toadstools, where most people will stop. (worth the trip, but there's much more if you keep going). Follow the trail around to the left of the hoodoos, where you will gain a view into a huge valley and also another toadstool "garden" of white rock hoodoos. Fewer tourists for this extra distance.

Easy walk with great views. This should not be done in full sun or high heat. We left at 6:30 in the morning to avoid the rising temps, and were back by 9:00 which worked very well. Dog friendly. Not crowded.
