We drove to here from Page, Arizona. You cross the dam and go about 20 miles. Big enough parking lot on the right side of highway. It's a relatively easy trail. The trail winds and curves a lot and people have made "shortcuts" to avoid those curves. About halfway in the trail, it seems like the normal trail has collapsed and you have to impromptu climb up a small hill. Payoff at the end is worth the hike. We had the whole rock and "toadstools" to ourselves, so we took pictures and just relaxed for 30 minutes enjoying the silence.
On the way back, somehow we ended up walking off the main trail. Then navigating back towards the trail, we noticed footprints, meaning other hikers had done the same thing. So pay attention, otherwise you'll end up veering off the trail. Not a big deal whatsoever. Would recommend doing this. Devote about an hour and a half.

if you dont want to do some 10h hike .. this is a great alternative in the area --- its easy and not to difficult - but unmarked - mid day you should bring some water !!! it does get hot out there in the summer !
its not like the grand canyon so please do not expect the moon - if you have an eye for photography you could get some great shots there ! its also far away from cities so no light pollution

i loved it and spend some time to wonder around

Found this trail on the drive from Zion to Page. It is a very friendly and easy to navigate hike. The views are pretty impressive and the terrain is unique.

There is a small parking lot near mile marker 20 on 89 that marks the start of the trail. The hike there can be a little hard to follow, but if you follow the wash, you'll find it no problem. There is one spot where you have to walk up a hill, but you'll be able to see the path. The toadstool formations are very interesting to see. We didn't get to stay there as long as I wanted to because we were trying to make it to Horseshoe bend before sunset. Definitely fun to go and see these formations.

Family of four. Two girls 13 and 10. Loved lower antelope, but this was disappointing. Poorly marked trail. Got lost a couple of times, which was disconcerting with younger kids. Rocks were cool, but not what we expected.
