Short, easy hike. Takes you out to toadstools, that honestly looks like you're on another planet. Lots of room to roam once at the end. Great for families.

We really loved this hike as a contrast to our time in Arizona. Very different features, and very easy for the kids. Beautiful!

This was an easy walk/hike to get to but at the end, the scenery was just ok. This might be influenced by the fact that we had been previously hiking in Coyote Buttes North, South, Side Step Canyon and buckskin gulch so very little can...More

Blink and you'll miss the turnoff to the trailhead for this walk. The signage is very poor. By the time I saw the car-park, I had already driven past it and took me a a couple of miles to find a spot to turn around....More

I guess if you are short on time or not willing to exert yourself much, this might be a quintessential southern Utah hike. But really folks, go to Bryce Canyon or Goblin Valley and you will really see special hoodoos. This is a pale comparison...More

Stopped here while in Page, AZ. Quiet, nice hike with beautiful scenery. There isn't much shade, so bring a hat and some water, especially if hiking later in the day like we did. The toadstools are very interesting formations. Easy hike to the toadstools. A...More

It looks like short hike on Google Maps but allow over an hour to get there and back. Take water and hat with you - it's really warm in summer. Hoodoos look great - there is beautiful contrast between geological layers. It's one of Utah...More

Great short hike with really cool places to explore. Quite a few people were walking the trail but it was far from crowded. There were a few places to find shade, but not a lot. No restroom facilities. Beautiful scenery and cool hoodoos. Great place...More
