If you are looking for that perfect hike with few people and an other-worldly experience this is it! The toadstool are cool to see and not to hard to get to - just watch your time of day as it can get toasty!

This a short hike (and not too difficult) from Hwy. 89 about 45 miles from Kanab, Utah. There is a well marked trail that is easy to follow. Hint: The trail does go up and down a bit but if you take the wash, it makes you walk a little further but it's flat and sandy so it's very easy... More

We had no plans to stop here; we simply saw the small sign off the side of the road. this place resembles what I would expect Mars to look like. My kids had so much fun exploring...and me too! The coolest thing about the short out and back hike, the toadstools, the tall slots at the back wall...is that we... More

A quick and easy hike which is worth doing if you have the time. The trail isn't clearly marked at all so be sure to keep you're eyes peeled so you don't get lost or confused. We did this trail in early feb at around 4pm and were pleasantly surprised that it was only us and another couple there. Very... More

Great stop for a quick walk to get out of the car. We went right after a good rain and the ground was still soft around the Toadstools. The walk in is easy and fallows a wash (it was not running). The toadstools are very cool. The columns are made of soft rock and must topple often. Head around to... More

This is an amazingly quick and easy hike that you really shouldn't miss if you're ever in the area. The sign is super small and we had to make a u-turn to get back into the parking lot after passing it entirely. The hike itself is really short and easy and when you get to the toadstools you'll feel like... More

1.6 miles round trip hike - we were the only ones at dusk and got to see a beautiful sunset in the mountains. The formations are interesting, not too many, but it is worth it.

In planning for a month-long roadtrip to the canyon areas of utah, I looked far and wide for unique experiences from different sources to include on our itinerary. When I came upon information on these "Toadstool Hoodoos", I thought we'd check them out. They were in fact amazing! We stopped in late afternoon in mid August thinking we'd catch the... More

Close to highway 89, easy walk, not to miss. I've travelled extensively and my favorite State is Utah. This area is one of the many that is a privilege to experience.
