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

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

Trail was a bit more up and down, especially at the end, than we expected. It was almost easier to walk in the creek bed than the trail in most spots. Once we got to the top, it was terrific. You could spend a few...More

This is just a short nature walk, about 2 miles round trip, that goes to an area that has a few rock hoodoos, called "toad stools". The erosional features of the geologic formations are interesting. There are not many toadstools but it's a nice walk....More
