“Neat Little Astonishment of Nature”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

Just off a road and a nice little hike up into a rather astounding vista of strange and wonderful rock formations. A definite while visiting the SW, there are much more difficult to reach locations with even more extreme Hoodoos but I give this one a Thumbs for visitors with limited time who want to see a touch of astounding geology. Up.It is fascinating.

“Paria - Toadstool Hoodoos”
Reviewed 24 December 2011

These odd shaped rocks are a nice quick drive either by themselves or while on the way or way back from exploring the Wahweap Hoodoos.

“A fun place for a hike”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

It was a cool overcast morning in May when we began our hike to “Toadstools” (a.k.a. Rimrocks) off Rt 89 between MM 19 and 20. This was an easy hike to an area of interesting rock formations many resembling mushrooms. Wildflowers were blooming in the area. A few miles down the road near Churchwells around MM 13 a dirt road lead to an area known as the White Rocks. We went through a fence and followed a trail that looked like an old rancher’s road being careful to avoid the occasional cow flop. The area is very exposed and would be very hot in the summer. The rock formations here were quite beautiful. Both places are worth a few hours of exploration.

“Wonderful Place”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

These are some amazing rock formations just a short hike in from Highway 89. We were fortunate to have this wonderful place to ourselves the day we were there and it was not only beautiful and unworldly but completely silent.
