It took us a while to locate them, mainly because we thought we should be looking for something much larger than what we actually saw. The hoodoos are beautiful mushroom like soil structures outside Drumheller, definitely worth seeing!

It's not that there is anything wrong with the Hoodoos...it's that there simply isn't that much to see. An interesting geological formation for sure, but once you have seen one, you have seen them all. As well, compared to the fairy chimneys in Turkey or other geological wonders, they simply aren't that exciting.

this place was cool. It's hard to believe that mother nature makes these little places of beauty in wastelands. We climbed all over the rocks behind the hoodoos and explored many little cracks and crevices. If I'm ever in Drumheller again I think I'd like to have a picnic in the majesty.

Time and nature have changed the hoodoos to small sandstone structure, from there previous stature of 15 to 20 years ago.

It is definitley well worth going for a long walk on the trails in this area, which are well maintained and very clean. Hiking boots or tall shoes or boots with good support are recommended. The hoodoos are not huge, the largest we saw were maybe 12 or 15 feet tall at most, but they are very cool looking, and there were lots of smaller ones. It is intriguing to see how the wind is carving out new ones, as the older ones erode away. Its a dramatic landscape, beautiful and very photogenic, so make sure to bring your camera!
